Degiorgio Brothers on social benefits for years

Details on social benefits received by the brothers George and Alfred Degiorgio have been revealed in court on Thursday.

The two brothers and one of their partners appeared in front of the Court accused of money laundering activities as they are recipients of social allowances even though they lead a lavish lifestyle of flashy cars and fast boats.

A representative from the Social Security Department confirmed that George Degiorgio has been receiving benefits since 2002 and that Alfred Degiorgio has also received social benefits until September 2017.

A representative from the Commissioner for Revenue confirmed that Alfred Degiorgio had paid taxes for a number of years whilst both George Degiorgio and his partner are not registered with the Inland Revenue Department.

The case is scheduled to continue in September.
