Watch: Delia insists Abela’s inaction against Muscat unacceptable

Irridu naraw li l-ġustizzja sseħħ. 🇲🇹

Dak li ħareġ illum mill-Qorti juri biċ-ċar għalfejn Joseph Muscat bħala Prim Ministru ma kien ħa l-ebda azzjoni u minflok ħalla l-affarijiet għaddejjin u jfixkel li toħroġ il-ġustizzja fir-rigward tal-assassinju tal-ġurnalista Daphne Caruana Galizia.L-Oppożizzjoni tappoġġja l-ħidma tal-Korp tal-Pulizija biex jagħmlu l-investigazzjonijiet relatati f’armonija, mingħajr biża’ jew intimidazzjoni biex ma jħarsu lejn wiċċ ħadd, u biex il-ġustizzja ssir u tidher li qed issir.Messaġġ mill-Kap tal-Oppożizzjoni u tal-Partit Nazzjonalista Adrian Delia. 🇲🇹

Embattled Nationalist Party leader Adrian Delia insisted that Prime Minister Robert Abela’s inaction against his predecessor Joseph Muscat was unacceptable in the wake of the explosive testimony that emerged in the compilation of evidence against Yorgen Fenech earlier today.

In Court, Kurt Zahra recounted what Fenech had told him during his interrogation, with the former Tumas Group CEO claiming that Muscat’s chief of staff Keith Schembri was actively involved in the assassination plot, even paying €80,000 personally for it to be carried out. Insp. Zahra also said that according to Fenech, Muscat was informed of Schembri’s involvement shortly afterwards.

In a statement which aired live on party media, Delia said that the testimony made clear the Office of the Prime Minister’s involvement in the murder, as well as its efforts to prevent justice from being carried out. It was also testament to the close links Muscat enjoyed with criminals.

The PN leader said that it was unacceptable for Muscat to be closely linked to people involved in the assassination of a journalist, carried out to stop her from reporting the corruption that was taking place.

But he also lamented that in the face of all this, Abela once more chose silence and inaction. He questioned whether Abela would act against Muscat, who he has made his consultant, particularly in light of the latest revelations.
