CSN calls for a fresh Egrant inquiry

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The Civil Society Network (CSN) is calling for a fresh inquiry into the Egrant case. The anti-corruption NGO said in a statement published on Friday that the Egrant inquiry is an inquiry that had never answered the question it was set out to answer.

CSN said that its request follows serious doubts which have been cast on the integrity of ex-Police Commission Lawrence Cutajar who is being investigated criminally after allegations of indirectly aiding in the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Former Police Commissioner Lawrence Cutajar was responsible for the same police that investigated Egrant in the magisterial inquiry led by Aaron Bugeja, who has since been appointed judge.

Joseph Muscat and Keith Schembri were in power at the time, the former who had to resign after pressure from mass protests, the latter who is also under criminal investigation.

The Civil Society Network said that the new inquiry should be broader in scope and should be done without the possibility of influence by the subjects of the inquiry.

“Malta deserves better than what it has got so far. The political saga will not end until justice is served on those who have harmed Malta so much. Justice can only be done once that the whole truth comes out and achieving this truth should be of utmost importance” – stated CSN.
