Malta Developers Association president Sandro Chetcuti has denied ever having an office inside Partit Laburista Headquarters.

His statement came after Speaker of the House Anġlu Farrugia told the board of inquiry that he would frequently see Chetcuti at the party headquarters before the 2013 election. Farrugia testified in the public inquiry into the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia on Tuesday.

In a sworn statement issued by his lawyer on 8 January, the construction lobbyist said that he never had an office on the fourth floor or any other floor at the PL headquarters.

He added that his involvement in the run up to the 2013 election was to hold meetings with people involved in business from all aspects of Maltese society with officials from Partit Laburista including Joseph Muscat who was Leader of the Opposition at that time.
