“Solidarity with thousands of officers who carry out their duties with dedication and honesty” – MPA

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The Malta Police Association has expressed its solidarity with thousands of police officers who carry out their duties in a diligent and honest way.

In a statement published on Facebook, the MPA reacted to the probe into the overtime racket which led to the arrest of some 40 traffic police officers. Some have been released on police bail and suspended from the Force. At least seven members of the unit have resigned including Police Superintendent Walter Spiteri. The investigation has been widened into other special units.

The Association said that the wrongdoings of a few should not overshadow the “impeccable” work carried out by many other police officers.

The MPA said it will not comment about ongoing investigations at this stage so as not to hamper the process.
