CSN calls for Cardona’s resignation

The Civil Society Network is calling for the resignation of Chris Cardona from his position as Deputy Leader of the Labour Party.

In a statement issued on Monday, the NGO said that this call is being made after it emerged in court, on Monday, that Chris Cardona is under investigation by the police in connection with the murder of investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Alongside Cardona, former Deputy Commissioner Silvio Valletta and ex-chief of staff Keith Schembri are also implicated.

The Civil Society Network said it feels that politicians under criminal investigation, especially a political murder of historic proportions, should not be given space in politics.
