Former mega minister, deputy leader and star candidate of the Partit Laburista in government Konrad Mizzi is refusing to give evidence in the public inquiry on the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia since “It does not make sense for me to testify in this public inquiry in front of two prominent Nationalist party politicians.” He said that while he realises that this move will not be popular, “…I am not duty-bound to prostate myself in front of my political assassins”.

Mizzi motivated his decision by saying that “key members of the Nationalist Party are playing a crucial role in the Daphne Caruana Galizia Public Inquiry. This has utterly politicised the Inquiry and its agenda”. Affirming that no allegations had been made of his involvement in the ‘heinous’ murder of the journalist, Mizzi said that “It does not make sense for me to testify in this public inquiry in front of two prominent Nationalist party politicians.”

Praising government’s track record and highlighting his commitment when he was minister, Mizzi, describing himself as “the PN’s favourite whipping boy” shed doubt on the legality of the inquiry adding “Whilst welcoming any lawful investigation, I stress that this must be done in full compliance with the law”.
