Outgoing PN leader Simon Busuttil has formally asked the courts to open a magisterial inquiry against tourism minister Konrad Mizzi and the Prime Minister’s chief of staff Keith Schembri over potential money laundering linked to their Panama companies.
“I have taken this step to ensure that justice is done, given that the police and the Attorney General didn’t do their jobs,” Busuttil said. “The election result doesn’t mean that justice should not be served, and it shouldn’t be used as an excuse to sweep crimes under the carpet.
“I will keep on fighting to ensure that justice reigns supreme in this country and that the law applies equally for everyone, just as I have always done.”
The writ, signed by shadow justice minister Jason Azzopardi and lawyer Kris Busietta, lists a sequence of events starting from Mizzi’s and Schembri’s appointments in March
