A new corruption case every week – Beppe Fenech Adami
The reported resignation of Philip Rizzo from the Foundation for Tomorrow’s Schools after claiming corruption showed how corruption cases were continuing to follow each other every week, PN deputy leader Beppe Fenech Adami said yesterday.
Under this government, corruption cases are following each other with such regular rapidity that people are even forgetting the previous cases, Dr Fenech Adami said on Radio 101,
He recalled that last week it was reported that interference had led to the release from arrest of a footballer who was being held by the police in Gozo over a serious case of domestic violence.
Malta Today reported yesterday that Philip Rizzo, CEO of the Foundation for Tomorrow’s Schools, resigned in protest over alleged corruption in the issuing of direct orders for the renovation of schools.
Mr Rizzo informed the Prime Minister in September. Investigations are under way by the police and the Internal Audit and Investigation Department.
Before being given his role as FTS CEO, Mr Rizzo had quit his job as chairman of the Employment and Training Corporation following controversy over a comment posted on Facebook.
