Dr Mark A. Sam­mut yes­ter­day launched his lat­est book L-Aqwa fl-Ewropa. IlPanama Pa­pers u l-Poter. The launch was chaired by Dr Si­mon Mer­cieca.

The book deals with the scan­dal that has trau­ma­tised the Mal­tese elec­torate in the last few months. It casts light on the Mos­sack Fon­seca law firm in Panama and the rea­sons why the wealthy and the pow­er­ful ask this law firm to hide their wealth in se­cret com­pa­nies in Panama.
