My father would have suffered a stroke if he saw what Mizzi and Schembri did – Mark Anthony Sammut
“If my father was still alive and saw what Minister Konrad Mizzi and Chief of Staff Keith Schembri did, he would have suffered a stroke,” Dr Mark Anthony Sammut said during the INDEPTH programme.
Dr Sammut, who is the son of Frans Sammut, author and cultural consultant to former Prime Minister Alfred Sant, was referring to the Panama Papers scandal while being interviewed by Rachel Attard, news editor of The Malta Independent.
Dr Sammut not only criticised Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and his government but also gave reasons why the Nationalist Party leader Simon Busuttil is the only attractive alternative for this country. He said that the government handled the Panama Papers scandal poorly.
“If Dr Muscat took Dr Alfred Sant and Minister Evarist Bartolo’s advice, that he should tell Dr Mizzi and Mr Schembri to step down, I would have seen the situation differently,” Dr Sammut, a former Labour candidate who twice contested the general election, said.
He added that the “audit that the Prime Minister launched will lead to nowhere.”
Dr Sammut launched his latest book L-Aqwa fl-Ewropa. IlPanama Papers u l-Poter a few weeks ago. The content of this book was discussed during the programme along with other issues.
The programme will be uploaded on our website today.
