Malta Independent - - NEWS - Julian Bon­nici

Adrian Delia yes­ter­day filed a fifth li­bel suit against jour­nal­ist Daphne Caru­ana Gal­izia.

The PN lead­er­ship can­di­date filed the first li­bel suit against the jour­nal­ist on Thurs­day, 24 Au­gust, and a sec­ond one the fol­low­ing day. The third li­bel suit was filed on Mon­day, while a fourth was filed on Tuesday.

The first two li­bel cases will start to be heard on 25 Septem­ber, af­ter the PN lead­er­ship elec­tion has been held. The first phase of the elec­tion is on 2 Septem­ber, the sec­ond on 16 Septem­ber.

Delia is be­ing ac­cused by Caru­ana Gal­izia of money laun­der­ing. She claims that money de­riv­ing from pros­ti­tu­tion in Lon­don flats was trans­ferred through an off­shore ac­count in Delia’s name.

Delia has ve­he­mently de­nied the claims, say­ing that he does not have, and never has had per­sonal ac­counts or mon­eys abroad. He pre­vi­ously ac­knowl­edged that he rep­re­sented a Maltese client who was in­deed the land­lord of at least one prop­erty used for il­licit prac­tices, but in­sisted that his client/land­lord was not to be held re­spon­si­ble for the ac­tions of his ten­ants.
