The anti-corruption NGO, Repubblika has appealed to Prime Minister Robert Abela to appoint a joint team between Europol and the Malta Police to investigate the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia and the corruption that is connected to it.

In a letter sent to Prime Minister Abela Repubblika referred to the details revealed on Friday after a joint investigation by Reuters and the Times of Malta concerning 17 Black’s earnings of millions of euros just a few days after Enemalta purchased a windfarm in Montenegro is shocking.

Repubblika said that journalists, with their limited resources, are revealing huge scandals while it is clear that the Police chose to look the other way, and even go so far as to cover up for corrupt politicians.

“It is obvious that a number of high officials are compromised in this matter,” said the NGO.

Repubblika wrote to Abela that he has the obligation to ensure that this wave of corruption and scandal does not continue to drag down the name of the country.

“You have the duty to ensure that justice in our country does not discern between anyone, even if the person involved was Prime Minister just before you took on the role. We renew our appeal to you not to allow those who have betrayed our country and are endangering our common wealth escape justice” – stated Repubblika.

The letter was signed by the President of Repubblika, Vicki Ann Cremona.
