Repubblika has called upon the Police to start the process to issue a request for a European arrest warrant so that Konrad Mizzi is brought back to Malta, said the anti-corruption group in a statement issued on Monday.

Repubblika said that after he left Malta Konrad Mizzi now appears to be avoiding justice by having taken up residence in the United Kingdom.

The activist group said that the dragging of the feet is not justifiable and they are particularly concerned because they suspect that there is some form of agreement between Konrad Mizzi and whoever is protecting him in order that his arrest is postponed for when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union which could possibly result in the European arrest warrant to no longer being applicable or enforceable.

Repubblika said that if the government is serious about improving Malta’s reputation, it has to show evidence that it is not guaranteeing impunity for Konrad Mizzi, Keith Schembri and others like Joseph Muscat that still have to answer for their actions.

Konrad Mizzi is not exonerated from answering for his actions simply because he resigned as Minister, said the anti-corruption group Repubblika.

“He is accused of abuse of power, corruption, bribery and money laundering and justice needs to be done in his regard,” said the activist group.

The resignation of Konrad Mizzi is not enough – Repubblika

Konrad Mizzi resigned as a government minister shortly after the arrest of Yorgen Fenech.

The NGO stated that this happened when it was clear that the police had enough evidence against Yorgen Fenech to charge him with masterminding the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia. 

It was mentioned how Konrad Mizzi registered a secret company in Panama by using the services of Nexia BT in Malta and Mossack Fonseca in Panama.  Nexia BT informed Mossack Fonseca that the company of Konrad Mizzi was to receive payments that would amount to hundreds of thousands from, among others, a company registered in Dubai called 17 Black which belongs to Yorgen Fenech.

Konrad Mizzi awarded the contract for the purchase of energy to Electrogas, a consortium managed by Yorgen Fenech.
