Beppe Fenech Adami says PL adopt­ing fas­cist tac­tics and fab­ri­cat­ing un­founded sto­ries

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Be­lea­guered Na­tion­al­ist Party Deputy Leader Beppe Fenech Adami yes­ter­day lashed out against the Labour govern­ment is adopt­ing fas­cist tac­tics aimed at shut­ting him up while fab­ri­cat­ing un­founded sto­ries.

In a state­ment fol­low­ing a story in Mal­taTo­day last Sun­day, the PN deputy leader said that un­til last Satur­day – when he was con­tacted by the news­pa­per – he did not know that an in­ves­ti­ga­tion was be­ing car­ried out by the po­lice, and as such he could not have pos­si­bly in­ter­vened in the mat­ter.

An in­quiry has been set up to in­ves­ti­gate why po­lice failed to pur­sue an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into money laun­der­ing by an in­ter­na­tional firm when the name of one of its then direc­tors, Beppe Fenech Adami, cropped up.

Dr Fenech Adami yes­ter­day said that in the time since the be­gin­ning of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion – three years and nine months, ac­cord­ing to the news­pa­per – no­body from the po­lice or any other au­thor­ity had ap­proached him about it.

Prime Min­is­ter Joseph Mus­cat would do well to act against the cor­rupt and crim­i­nal peo­ple who are close to him, Dr Fenech Adami said.

The PN deputy leader is cur­rently in Stras­bourg on par­lia­men­tary work, and will be fly­ing di­rectly to Lon­don after­wards for more tests fol­low­ing the op­er­a­tion he un­der­went two years ago to have a tu­mour re­moved.

What is Dr Fenech Adami afraid of, PL asks

In a state­ment, the Labour Party asked what Dr Fenech Adami is afraid of, and ac­cused him of at­tack­ing oth­ers in­stead of an­swer­ing the ques­tions sur­round­ing the case.

The party said that Dr Fenech Adami should an­swer ques­tions re­gard­ing his po­si­tion as one of the direc­tors of Bal­ti­more ltd.

The com­pany, they claim, de­posited more than € 5 mil­lion over the span of four years on be­half of the com­pany, Cap­i­talOne, which is owned by the per­son at the cen­tre of this case.
