The civil society movement, Repubblika has called for answers and full disclosure of information connected with alleged corrupt dealings involving public officials.

Marking the UN’s International Day against Corruption, Repubblika has listed these through a series of demands.

Among them are calls for the full disclosure of the Egrant Inquiry as well as explanations for the daily payment of €5,000 to Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri, from the 17Black owner Yorgen Fenech.

The movement has also called on the Prime Minister to desist in creating, ‘smokescreens as a distraction to escape scrutiny and responsibility for his omissions.’

‘We have reached a dire point where corruption has become institutionalised.’ and, ‘No one is willing to shoulder any responsibility for their actions, no matter how condemnable.’ Repubblika said.
