Hand-picked in­ves­ti­ga­tions

Malta Independent - - DEBATE & ANALYSIS -

Al­low me to re­mind Prime Min­is­ter Joseph Mus­cat that it is highly un­eth­i­cal to have cho­sen a well-known Mintof­fian (such as for­mer judge Philip Sciber­ras), as one of the trio sup­posed to ‘in­ves­ti­gate’ Beppe Fenech Adami who, as a lawyer, was in­volved in a com­pany called Baltimore Fidu­ciary (which acted as a nom­i­nee com­pany owner of Cap­i­tal In­vest­ment Com­pany).

To my mind, since Philip Sciber­ras is a well-known Mintof­fian, he should have had the de­cency to refuse this of­fer but, ap­par­ently enough, this seems to be be­yond him.

One won­ders why Malta’s Prime Min­is­ter Joseph Mus­cat was care­ful not to ap­point a truly in­de­pen­dent in­quiry in or­der to find out where money Keith Schem­bri and Kon­rad Mizzi wanted to place in se­cret off-shore Panama com­pa­nies came from.

I do hope that the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment will look into the mat­ter.
