PN dismisses allegations on Beppe Fenech Adami, says they are aimed at diverting attention
The Nationalist Party this morning issued a statement saying that along with the “monument of corruption” – referring to the LNG tanker – which is expected to arrive later today, the people in Castille have also delivered a story to try and tarnish the PN’s reputation and to divert attention.
Referring to a story published on MaltaToday, which claims that a money laundering investigation was not pursued when Beppe Fenech Adami’s name appeared, the Nationalist Party said that this story is unfounded.
“The aim of this story is to tarnish the integrity of a PN official,” the statement said. The PN said that even the article itself shows that at no point did Dr Fenech Adami know about this ongoing investigation. It said that the PN deputy leader had resigned from the company mentioned more than three years ago.
“The truth is, if the allegations regarding Dr Fenech Adami are true, then why didn’t the government do anything about it?” it concludes.
PN’s reaction is worrying - PL
Reacting, the Labour Party said that the PN’s reaction to the story about its deputy leader was worrying. “The Labour Party will not rush over such a serious issue which involves constitutional institutions,” it said. The PL said it hopes that the truth about these allegations comes out. “The PN must assume its political responsibilities and show that such behaviour is not tolerated.”
