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