WATCH: Adrian Delia’s reaction on European Parliament report and on Stephen Spiteri’s case
Opposition and Nationalist Party leader Adrian Delia has stated that the report is being studied in detail, but reiterates that the conclusions arrived at have all been stated by the Opposition over a long period. Dr Delia said he was worried at the damage to Malta’s reputation, and appealed to Government not to persist in leaving certain persons involved to occupy public posts. Dr Delia asked the PM why he was not taking immediate steps to safeguard the country’s reputation.
Dr Delia was questioned by journalists about the case of Stephen Spiteri, wherein it is being alleged that Dr Spiteri sold sickness certificates to patients he had not examined, and replied that he was not informed that Dr Spiteri was being investigated by the Medical Council. Dr Delia added that if this information reaches him, he would then send for Dr Spiteri and ask for explanations. Dr Delia clarified, however, that up to today it had not resulted to him that Dr Spiteri was being investigated by the Medical Council.
