The missing document signed prior to the awarding the hospital privatization deal has been found and passed on to the National Audit Office, NAO, a government spokesperson confirmed with Newsbook.com.mt but was unable to confirm where the document was found.

On Monday former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said he had no idea where the missing Memorandum of Understanding signed prior to the awarding the hospital privatisation deal might be.

After the news emerged Prime Minister Robert Abela instructed different entities to find the missing document. Abela said that he gave them a deadline by Monday.

Last week, the Auditor General published its report on the concession deal, which stated that of immediate concern was the agreement that parties representing the government reportedly entered into an agreement prior to the request for proposals (RfP) with a subset of the investors of the VGH.
