Rule of law NGO Repubblika said that the Prime Minister’s position has become untenable after his minister, Chris Cardona was called in for questioning. Republika said that the PM can no longer say that no one on cabinet has been linked to this investigation.
“Joseph Muscat must resign immediately. The sooner the better,” said Repubblika. It added that the government parliamentary group has a moral obligation to choose a new leader, concluding in an appeal to facilitate a transition to an administration which has no ties or obligations to shelter criminals.
