In the latest episode of the Panama Papers fallout, the Prime Minister explained that in this case he had made an exception, in suing Daphne Caruana Galizia for libel. He will not now readily let the case go, even though Daphne has since been brutally killed and cannot defend herself, and her bereaved and grieving family are battling on in the courtroom.
In a show of support for Muscat, MEP Alfred Sant, our former prime minister no less, popped up on Facebook. For good measure, Sant added that the discussion about rule of law in Malta is nothing but a screen for occult, partisan and classist motives.
Occult? Seriously. What is this bizarre Egrant drama turning into now – the Da Vinci Code or Angels and Demons, with secret societies and hidden rooms of esoteric texts in the depths of the Vatican library? We’ve heard enough babble about witches already, thank you
