113 magisterial inquiries have been pending for more than 6 years, Justice Minister Edward Zammit Lewis revealed.

Zammit Lewis, who was replying to a parliamentary question by government whip Glenn Bedingfield, said that since such inquiries were by their nature confidential, he could not provide further information.

But he nevertheless emphasised that in his opinion, it was not acceptable for inquiries to drag on for so long to the detriment of the public.
