Watch: “Serious change” in investigations into Daphne’s murder – Abela

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Labour Party leadership hopeful Robert Abela said that he has seen a serious change in the manner in which investigations are being conducted to solve the Daphne Caruana Galizia murder.

Abela said this while he was being interviewed by Newsbook.com.mt. He said that he thinks the institutions are doing their work as they should.

He explained that for Malta to get closure on the case, justice must be served in full. However, he said that he doesn’t want a witch hunt.

Abela also said that the opposition ought to be consulted before people are chosen to occupy certain positions.

He stated that eventually, there needs to be a reform in the Police Corps, remarking however that this is not required as yet.

During this same interview, he said that he does not feel that he should accept gifts. This was in reaction to the news that Prime Minister Joseph Muscat allegedly received a limited edition of a Bulgari watch valued at €20,000 and three bottles of wine at his birthday party valued at €5,800 from Caruana Galizia murder suspect Yorgen Fenech.
