Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Minister for Justice, Culture and Local Government Owen Bonnici said there are people posing as him using fake profiles circulating on Facebook.

Bonnici published this information on his authentic Facebook page. He explained that there are some entities, which he believes are probably non-Maltese, that have created false profiles using his name.

The Minister elaborated that these scammers are trying to lure people into mysterious schemes. He is also asking his followers to unite with him and report this issue to Facebook.
