In more than one oc­ca­sion, Dr Az­zopardi claimed that the min­is­ter lied in Par­lia­ment about the com­mis­sions handed to Hen­ley and Part­ners in the cit­i­zen­ship scheme.

He said that this is the first time that he can speak about this case in Par­lia­ment.

"Cor­rupt clique are de­spi­ca­ble words that we should avoid us­ing," he said while his fel­low MPs hummed "shame, shame."

Speaker Anglu Far­ru­gia said he would look into the mat­ter.
