Economy Minister Chris Cardona stated that he has nothing further to add on the Acapulco case.
During an interview with Newsbook.com.mt Socialist MEP Ana Gomes had said that the fact that Minister Cardona dropped the libel cases against Daphne Caruana Galizia because he has something to hide.
When Newsbook.com.mt asked Minister Cardona about Gomes comments he said that he had released a “very clear” statement on the issue and that he has nothing further to add.
In a Facebook post Matthew Caruana Galizia, son of the assassinated journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia said that Cardona allowing for the libel cases to expire from his end are proof that Cardona is in the wrong.
In January of 2017 Daphne Caruana Gaizia wrote that Cardona was spotted in a brothel in Velbert, Germany. Cardona has consistently denied these allegations.
