Ir-RAI dwar it-theddid li irċeviet Daphne. Il-Pulizija għalqu għajnejhom?

Qed jingħad li jista’ jkun li dawk involuti fil-qtil ta’ Daphne huma persuni li jissemmew fil-kitbiet ta’ Caruana Galizia. Ir-RAI qed jirrapporta li l-Pulizija Maltija, bl-għajununa tal-esperti forensiċi Olandiżi u Amerikani qed tifli l-kitbiet (fil-blog) ta’ Daphne b’attenzjoni partikolari għax-xahar ta’ Marzu li għadda fejn hi titkellem dwar theddid.

Ir-RAI qed jgħid li “Un gruppo di esperti sta analizzando in dettaglio tutti gli articoli, sia quelli recenti sia quelli di alcuni mesi fa, in particolare quelli in cui Caruana Galizia si riferisce alle minacce.”

Issa l-mistoqsija loġika u li toħroġ kważi waħedha hi għaliex dawn il-kitbiet li jagħtu dettalji dwar dan it-theddid ma ġewx investigati mill-Pulizija Maltija meta fil-fatt inkitbu u kienu friski? In-nuqqas ta’ azzjoni mill-Pulizija dakinnhar wasslet messaġġ li dan it-theddid ma kienux qed jikkunsidrawh bis-serjetà.

Il-pulizija kienu jafu b’dawn il-kitbiet għax dawn jista’ jaqrahom kulħadd. Allura mhux inkompetenza grassa li tibda investigazzjoni dwarhom issa iktar minn sitt xhur wara? Għaliex il-Pulizja Maltija meta iffaċċjata b’kitbiet li jitkellmu dwar it-theddid ma tawx każ tiegħu? Għalfejn kellu jkun dan il-qtil biex forsi jiċċaqalqu ftit?

Possibli li l-Pulizija Maltija trid l-għajnuna tal-esperti forensiċi Olandiżi u Amerikani biex tifhem u tieħu azzjoni dwar dak miktub fuq il-blog ta’ Daphne? Inkompetenza ikbar minn din ftit hemm possibilità li nisimgħu biha. Għalhekk ir-riżenji huma meħtieġa, u mhux biss tal-Kummissarju tal-Pulizija.

Għal dak li qalet ir-RAI agħfas hawn.

Crocodile tears and the assassination of Daphne

Countless articles and opinions have been written about Daphne’s assassination last Monday, when the car she was driving was blown to smithereens.

Many theories have been woven as to the possible identity and motivation of those who planned and/or executed her assassination. I will not add to the speculation.

Like many others, I followed her writings through the years and found most of them informative. In the Maltese journalist community, her investigative skills were second to none. Her arguments were always very forceful even though a bias was always clearly present. She could alternate between well-written, clearly thought out and investigative articles and pure invective aimed at those she despised.

Her underlying political views were always clear and she promoted them mercilessly. Until June 2017, she ignored most of the sins of the PN and focused relentlessly on those of the PL. After June 2017 she practically lumped them both together in one basket, as they deserved, lending credence to the statement that there is nothing to distinguish the PN from the PL.

As for AD, it was one of her punching bags when it suited her, in particular at those critical political junctures where AD’s views and positions contrasted sharply with those of the PN. At other times, when she found AD’s views useful, she used them to buttress her own.

Her assassination is a direct blow against freedom of expression in Malta.

Various other attempts have been made to shut her up through the countless actions in court for civil damages. An attempt was made to cripple her financially with a legal mechanism, insisting that the claimed civil damages be deposited in Court when legal action is initiated. This was an attempt at intimidation which, unfortunately, the Law Courts did not see through. The attempt was only thwarted through the initiative of David Thake who organised crowd funding of the sums requested, thus short-circuiting the bully-boy tactics of Minister Cardona and his lawyers.

The Leader of the Opposition, Adrian Delia, having been under her spotlight for the past four months is now apparently out to milk her assassination for his party’s political gain, as is evidenced by his speeches earlier this week. He seems to want us to forget that he too was a contributor to the pile of actions for libel submitted against her. Their withdrawal this week smells of crass hypocrisy.

This is essentially the background to the crocodile tears being shed by some of those who say that they are “shocked” at her assassination.

Police investigations have commenced. Requesting help from foreign experts may ensure that all leads are followed. The investigation was almost torpedoed in its first seconds when Magistrate Consuelo Scerri Herrera failed to realise that this was a definite no-go area for her. That she took hours to realise this, is testimony to the fact that some members of the bench still need to master much more than the law.

The Magistrate’s presence shocked all as soon as she arrived on site at Bidnija. Soon after, that shock was to be compounded by the comments posted on Facebook by a Police Sergeant from the police investigating team on his being overjoyed at the day’s happenings. The fact that he was suspended pending disciplinary action is not sufficient. It still needs to be explained by the Commissioner of Police why some members of the police force have still not realised that they should stay away from the social media as it may seriously jeopardise not only their integrity and impartiality but also that of the whole Police Corps.

Apparently, it was not only the Police Sergeant who was overjoyed on Monday afternoon. What about the few carcades which were organised? Anybody cares to assume responsibility?

The Prime Minister is very anxious to get to the bottom of all this. We all are. The sooner this is done the better. However, when this is done and dusted it would be appropriate to examine the extent to which it was avoidable. As indeed it was.

Kemm aħna iffurtunati li għandna lil Adrian Delia

 

Għadni kif smajt id-diskors fil-Parlament ta’ Adrian Delia. Kien kompletament jistona fiċ-ċirkustanzi tal-lum, il-qtil b’bomba ta’ Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Daphne ma kixfitx biss kif membri tal-Gvern kellhom x’jaqsmu mal-iskandlu tal-Panama imma kixfet ukoll l-iskandlu tal-bridel u kif dan kellu x’jaqsam mal-uffiċċju legali ta’ Adrian Delia innifsu! U bosta affarijiet oħra.

Imma l-ikbar waħda hi li issa aħna iffurtunati għax għandna lil Adrian Delia li ser jiddefendi l-istituzzjonijiet. Ħasra li ma kienx hawn qabel. Għax l-istituzzjonijiet ilhom jitmermru ħafna iktar minn ħames snin.

Kieku ħares ħarsa madwaru kien jara uħud minn dawk responsabbli.

Il-bomba li qatlet lil Daphne

Il-karozza bomba li splodiet fil-Bidnija u li l-pulizija qed jikkonfermaw li fiha kien hemm u mietet Daphne Caruana Galizia tqabbad lil pajjiż fit-triq tal-biża’.

Ser jingħadu ħafna stejjer u tejoriji dwar min jista’ jkun hemm wara dan il-qtil.

L-aħħar darba li ktibt dwarha kien fi Frar li għadda f’post intitolata Il-Mannara ta’ Cardona kontra l-pinna ta’ Daphne.

Dak li għidt dakinnhar nirrepetieh illum:
“Caruana Galizia ma tibza’ minn ħadd. Ħalfet li ma jmejjilha ħadd u tagħmel sewwa li fejn hi konvinta tibqa’ għaddejja. Għandi kull rispett lejn din l-attitudni anke jekk mhux neċessarjament li naqbel ma kull ma tgħid jew kif fil-fatt tgħidu.”

Hi ħasra li ħajjitha kellha tintemm b’dan il-mod brutali. Azzjoni li għalkemm hi ta’ min għamilha tirrifletti ruħha fuq il-pajjiż kollu. Dawn huma azzjonijiet li jseħħu f’pajjiżi fejn tirrenja l-Mafja.

Il-Mafja ma titkellimx bil-fjuri.

Nistennew u naraw x’ser isir u kemm jinqabad min għamel dan l-att faħxi.

Pilatu fid-dawl tax-xemx

L-istorja dwar Egrant Inc. ilha sena fl-aħbarijiet. Ilha tinħema 4 snin minn ftit wara l-elezzjoni ġenerali tal-2013 meta twaqqfet flimkien ma kumpaniji oħra.

L-ewwel kellna lil Konrad Mizzi bil-kumpanija tiegħu Hearnville Inc.. Ftit wara Keith Schembri bil-Kumpanija tiegħu Tillgate Inc.. Ħin minnhom daħal fl-istorja Adrian Hillmann tat-Times of Malta ma kumpaniji oħra fil-Panama u fpostijiet oħra. Hillmann kien l-uniku wieħed sissa li irriżenja (jew ġie mġiegħel jirriżenja).

L-istorja, kif bla dubju tiftakru, saret waħda pubblika wara li nkixfu l-Panama Papers. Miljuni ta dokumenti sigrieti dwar diversi kumpaniji imwaqqfa minn persuni pubbliċi u privati madwar id-dinja kollha ma baqawx iktar sigrieti. Inkixfu u tperrċu mal-erbat irjieħ tad-dinja.

Il-qalba tal-problema mhiex il-ħolqien tal-kumpaniji imma l-iskop li għalih dawn jitwaqqfu. Kumpaniji sigrieti, kif għidt fartiklu ieħor ma jinħolqux biex fihom jitfaddlu d-domni jew is-santi. Dawn il-kumpaniji jitwaqqfu biex fihom jinħbew flejjes u assi oħra min għajnejn l-awtoritajiet. Dan il-ħabi jsir għal żewġ raġunijiet : biex ikun evitat il-ħlas tat-taxxi, u/jew biex jinħeba l-frott tal-korruzzjoni.

Iddur kif iddur, il-politiku u dawk ta madwaru qatt ma jistgħu jiġġustifikaw il-ħolqien ta dawn il-kumpaniji. Għax dawn ġeneralment  ifissru involviment fil-korruzzjoni inkella fl-evażjoni tat-taxxa. Għalhekk il-polemika.

Tnejn mill-kumpaniji ilna nafu ta min huma. Ta Konrad Mizzi u ta Keith Schembri. Inkixfu kmieni u kien għadu ma sar l-ebda użu minnhom, skond kif kien intqal dakinnhar. Kienet inkixfet korrispondenza dwar il-possibilitá ta ftuħ ta kontijiet ma diversi banek. Kien hemm diversi tweġibiet kompromettenti li, iżda, Konrad Mizzi u Keith Schembri dejjem ċaħdu li kellhom xjaqsmu magħhom jew inkella li kienu inħarġu fuq struzzjoniiet tagħhom. Ftit kienu twemmnu.

Il-polemika baqgħet għaddejja u l-attenzjoni ċċaqalqet lejn it-tielet kumpanija : Egrant Inc. Ta min kienet din?

Niftakru li imkien fil-Panama Papers ma kien hemm l-iċken informazzjoni dwar is-sid jew is-sidien ta Egrant Inc, għax kien intqal li din l-informazzjoni kienet ser tgħaddi bil-fomm fuq Skype. Il-messaġġ kien ċar, mill-ewwel, li l-probabbiltá kbira kienet li kien hemm xi persuna jew persuni importanti ħafna involuti. Importanti iktar minn Konrad Mizzi u Keith Schembri, jiġifieri.  Ma kienx hemm lok għall-immaġinazzjoni. L-ismijiet possibli kienu limitati ħafna u l-ismijiet probabbli kienu fuq fomm kulħadd!  In-nies ilhom jitkellmu dwarhom!

Nhar il-Ħamis infetaħ kapitlu ieħor. Fuq il-blog tagħha Daphne Caruana Galizia irreferiet għall- dokumenti li skonta qegħdin fis-safe tal-Pilatus Bank u li minnhom jirriżulta li l-kumpanija Egrant Inc hi ta Michelle Muscat u li din il-kumpanija irċeviet diversi flejjes mill-Azerbajġan, l-ikbar waħda minnhom somma ta $1.017 miljun li waslet mingħand bint Aliyev. Mil-livell ta dettall ippubblikat hu ċar li d-dokumenti interni tal-bank huma s-sors tal-istorja. Il-Ġimgħa fil-għaxija ġiet ippubblikata informazzjoni dwar ċertifikat taisħma fliema ċertifikat qed jingħad li l-kumpaniji Dubro Limited S.A. u Aliator S.A. għandhom fidejhom ishma tal-kumpanija Egrant u dan fisem is-Sinjura Michelle Muscat. Imma d-dokumenti infushom li minnhom qed ikun ikkwotat sissa għadhom mhumiex ippubblikati. Ma nafx għaliex.  Hemm bżonn li jinħarġu għad-dawl tax-xemx id-dokumenti kollha li fuqhom hi ibbażata l-istorja. Dan hu neċessarju għax dak li qed jingħad hu ikkontestat.

Għalkemm din l-istorja ilha tinħass ġejja, xorta meta ġiet tinħass iebsa ħafna. Hi ta gravitá kbira u tista tkun dak li  jispjega l-għaliex Konrad Mizzi u Keith Schembri ma tkeċċewx is-sena l-oħra meta ħarġet l-aħbar li kellkom il-kumpaniji sigrieti.

TaPilatus caħdu kollox, bħalma għamlu tan-Nexia BT u ovvjament Joseph u Michelle Muscat.

Bosta huma konvinti mill-veraċitá tal-istorja. Imma li tkun moralment konvint li l-istorja hi korretta mhux biżżejjed. Din l-istorja teħtieġ il-konferma li tiġi mill-provi tad-dokumenti u mhux mid-dimostrazzjonijiet. Għax fuq id-dokumenti hi mibnija. Allura hemm obbligu li dawn id-dokumenti tant bażiċi jaraw id-dawl tax-xemx.

Spotlight on Pilatus Bank

 

The Egrant Inc. story has been in the news for the past year: it has been developing for over the four years since the 2013 general elections, when it was set up together with other companies.

First we had Konrad Mizzi with his company Hearnville Inc. Then we had Keith Schembri with his company, Tillgate Inc. The matter became public when the Panama Papers were disclosed. Millions of hitherto secret documents about companies set up by public and private individuals all around the globe were made public. 

The core of the issue is not the setting up of the companies but the objectives for which they were set up. Secret companies are normally set up for the concealment of financial and other assets in order to avoid the taxman or to conceal the fruits of corruption.

The owners of two of the companies are already known. One of them is Minister Konrad Mizzi while the other is the Prime Ministers Chief of Staff Keith Schembri. Their identity was disclosed over 12 months ago, when it was declared that their Panama companies had not yet been put to use. When the Panama Papers were published it became known that correspondence with several banks had been exchanged relative to the opening of bank accounts for the said companies. Requests and commitments were spotlighted but Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri disclaimed any association with this correspondence and commitments identified.  No one believed them then.

The polemic went on and the focus shifted towards the third company: Egrant Inc. Who was its ultimate beneficial owner?

We should remember that the Panama Papers did not shed any light on the identity of the owner or owners of Egrant Inc. because this information was never communicated in a written manner: it was communicated over Skype. The message conveyed was immediately clear that in all probability some big-head was involved and that he or she was more important than Konrad Mizzi or Keith Schembri.  There was no room for imagination as the possible names were limited in number with the actual names being on the tip of everyones tongue.

On Thursday, a new chapter was opened. Daphne Caruana Galizia, on her blog, referred to documents that she said were in the safe of Pilatus Bank. These documents identified Michelle Muscat as the ultimate beneficial owner of the company Egrant Inc. It was also stated that this company received money transfers from Azerbaijan, including the sum of $1.017 million on the instructions of the daughter of Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev.  

The level of detail described by Daphne Caruana Galizias blogpost indicates very clearly that this was based on the contents of bank documents. On Friday evening, additional information relating to a certificate of trust was published. This information, the validity of which was contested by Joseph Muscat, states that the company Dubro Limited S.A. and Aliator S.A.  hold shares in the company Egrant Inc. on behalf of Mrs Michelle Muscat.  But the documents from which this information is being extracted are still unpublished.  I do not know why this is so. It is necessary that these documents, fundamental to the issue under consideration, see the light of day. This is essential because the information published is being contested.  

The information published is serious stuff. It may be the reason why Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri were not dismissed from office last year when the Panama Papers were published.

Pilatus Bank, Nexia BT, Joseph and Michelle Muscat have denied the published information.  Many are  convinced on the veracity of the story, but being morally convinced is not sufficient. Proof only results from authentic documentation but certainly not from demonstrations. It is for this reason that the full disclosure of all the documentation on which the published information is based is an essential  prerequisite.

Oċejan ta’ gideb.

L-ewwel qalulna li l-Egrant Inc kienet kumpanija mhux użata (shelf company).

Imbagħad intqal li kienet ta Brian Tonna.

Il-bieraħ Joseph Muscat qalilna li mhiex tiegħu u lanqas ta martu Michelle.

Issa Daphne Caruana Galizia qed tgħid li wara kollox il-Pilatus Bank għandu dokumenti fis-safe tal-kċina li fihom Brian Tonna jiddikjara li l-Egrant Inc hi tas-Sinjura Michelle Muscat.

Min hu l-giddieb?

Il-mannara ta’ Cardona kontra l-pinna ta’ Daphne

Il-partit ta' Chris Cardona

L-istorja fuq il-blogg ta Daphne Caruana Galizia dwar l-allegata żjara tal-Ministru Chris Cardona u l-konsulent tiegħu fburdell fil-Ġermanja ħadet żvolta ġdida.

Caruana Galizia tat informazzjoni dettaljata li tindika li qegħda fkuntatt ma persuna jew persuni li raw dak li kitbet dwaru. Cardona u l-konsulent tiegħu jiċħdu u qed jgħidu li għandhom provi li fil-ħin li intqal li kienu fil-burdell kienu ximkien ieħor.

Il-provi tażżewġ naħat sissa mhumiex magħrufa. Dettalji importanti li kull naħa qed tħalli għal iktar tard.

Issa imma jidher li qed tiżviluppa gwerra totali. Cardona u l-konsulent tiegħu ippreżentaw numru talibelli kontra Daphne Caruana Galizia dwar dak li kitbet u talbu li sakemm jinqatgħu l-kawżi, id-danni li jistgħu jirbħu jekk jingħataw raġun għandhom ikunu iffriżati mill-kontijiet bankarji ta Caruana Galizia. Il-Qorti laqgħet it-talba bil-konsegwenza li ftit inqas minn 50,000 fil-kontijiet bankarji ta Caruana Galizia ġew iffriżati: jiġifieri dawn huma flejjes ta Caruana Galizia li l-Qorti ordnat li jridu jibqgħu fil-bank u ma jintmessux sakemm il-Qorti stess tordna mod ieħor.  

Ma naħsibx li qatt ġara każ bħal dan li fkawża talibell li għada fil-bidu jittieħdu dawn il-passi.

L-istorja miktuba minn Caruana Galizia hi qawwija blingwaġġ ċar. Bla dubju ħalliet effett kbir fuq l-opinjoni pubblika, iktar u iktar meta ġiet mirfuda mill-filmati u kummenti tar-rappurtaġġ ta Mario Frendo għal NetNews. Jekk Caruana Galizia hi fposizzjoni li ġġib il-provi li diġa indikat li għandha diffiċli li nifhem kif tista titlef kull libell li ġie ippreżentat.

Huwa ċar li Cardona (u l-konsulent tiegħu) qed jipprova jagħti messaġġ ta saħħa billi jassoġġetta lil Caruana Galizia għal inkonvenjent sostanzjali bl-iffriżar tal-kontijiet bankarji tagħha. Filwaqt li legalment għandu dan id-dritt wisq naħseb li esaġera fir-reazzjoni tiegħu u probabbilment li fl-opinjoni pubblika dan ser jiswielu ta ħsara mhux żgħira. Għax għażel li jiġġieled kontra l-pinna bil-mannara.

Il-messaġġi miżżewġ naħat huma ċari daqs il-kristall.

Caruana Galizia ma tibza minn ħadd. Ħalfet li ma jmejjilha ħadd u tagħmel sewwa li fejn hi konvinta tibqa għaddejja. Għandi kull rispett lejn din l-attitudni anke jekk mhux neċessarjament li naqbel ma kull ma tgħid jew kif fil-fatt tgħidu.

Cardona min-naħa l-oħra qiegħed fmorsa. Għax jekk dak li inkiteb ikun issostanzjat jista jżarma. Caruana Galizia kitbet diversi affarijiet dwaru inkluż id-drama li kienet żviluppat xi xhur ilu fl-Stable, stabbilment tax-xorb li jiffrekwenta Cardona.

Hi ġlieda bejn il-pinna qawwija u l-mannara tal-arroganza. Hi rifless tal-qagħda gravi li fiha qiegħed il-pajjiż.

L-iscoop li tilef Salvu Balzan

 

Mela skond il-blogger Daphne Caruana Galizia xi ħadd fil-burdell FKK Acapulco fVelbert il-Ġermanja, li kien jifhem bil-Malti, qed jgħid li sema raġel jesklama (bil-Malti) dwar id-daqs tal-warrani ta waħda mill-prostituti.

Dan qed jingħad li kellu  wiċċ Che Guevara, tattoo mal-ġewnaħ ta spallejh. Mhux bħal Diego Armando Maradona li għandu t-tattoo ta Che Guevara fil-parti ta fuq ta driegħu.

Issa jiena ma nafx jekk l-Onorevoli Ministru Chris Cardona għandux it-tattoo ta Che Guevara mal-ġewnaħ ta spallejh. Ovvjament li jekk mgħandux dan it-tattoo ifisser li min qal li rah fil-burdell kien żbaljat!

Ikun ħafna konvinċenti iktar minn libel kieku Chris Cardona jurina l-ġewnaħ ta spallejh, għax jekk mgħandux l-ixbieha ta Che Guevara, kull min hu konvint li Cardona kien fil-burdell ikollu jibla kliemu.

Il-libelli li qal li ser jagħmel Cardona jistgħu jdumu is-snin. Imma spallejh jista jurihom għada fil-għodu billi jsejjaħ konferenza stampa u jinża l-qmis!

Imma jekk Cardona għandu dan it-tattoo, imbagħad iqumu iktar dubji dwar dak kollu li qed jgħid.

Ħasra li Salvu Balzan ma ġietux l-idea li jitlob lil Chris Cardona jinża l-qmis waqt Xtra ta nhar il-Ħamis fuq TVM. Kieku kien ikollu scoop tal-ostra!

Xtra ma jħares lejn wiċċ ħadd, imma lejn l-ispallejn naħseb li jista jħares ftit!

Il-qrun fil-ħajja pubblika

Alfred Mifsud

L-allegazzjonijiet dwar Alfred Mifsud huma serji ħafna. Imma huma allegazzjonijiet. Huwa diffiċli ħafna biex minn dak magħruf s’issa tikkonkludi dwar dak li jista’ jikkonvinċi lil Qrati bħala li huma l-fatti.

Dak li qalet Anna Zelbst u li ġie rappurtat verbatim fil-blog ta’ Daphne Caruana Galizia irid jgħaddi mill-għarbiel tal-kontro-eżami fil-Qorti u diffiċli ħafna biex minn issa tifhem kif din ser tirreaġixxi għall-mistoqsijiet li ser isirulha. Id-dubji li ser jinżergħu għall-verżjoni tagħha tal-fatti bla dubju ser jagħtu spjegazzjoni alternattiva għal dik li twasslet s’issa.

Jibqa’ l-fatt li l-Gvern dam ħafna biex irreaġixxa għal dak li ntqal, l-istess bħalma għamel f’każi oħra biex issa qed ikun ċar iktar minn qatt qabel li l-Gvern ta’ Joseph Muscat jagħti każ ħafna iktar tal-ħbiberiji u tal-lealtà politika milli tat-tbajja’ (reali jew mhux) fuq l-integrità tal-kandidati li huwa jmexxi l-quddiem għal ħatriet ta’ importanza nazzjonali.

Kienet korretta għaldaqstant il-Membru Parlamentari Kristy Debono meta l-bieraħ fil-Parlament qalet li dan kollu jfisser ukoll li Alfred Mifsud għandu jkun sospiz mill-post l-ieħor li qed jokkupa bħalissa, dak ta’ Deputat Gvernatur tal-Bank Ċentrali.

Għal uħud jista’ jidher inġust li rapport fuq blog jingħata din l-importanza kollha u li jwassal għal dawn il-konsiderazzjonijiet. Jekk wieħed jillimita ruħu għal analiżi superfiċjali jista’ jasal għal din it-tip ta’ konklużjoni. Imma jekk taħseb ftit iktar forsi tirrealizza li dan kollu jfisser li l-Gvern ta’ Muscat m’jagħmilx eżami sewwa tal-kandidati li jkun fi ħsiebu jmexxi l-quddiem b’mod partikolari għall-karigi sensittivi u ta’ importanza nazzjonali.

Filwaqt li l-kollass ta’ relazzjonijiet personali m’humiex u m’għandhomx ikun kriterju għal dawn id-deċiżjonijiet, sfortunatament il-mod kif iġibu ruħhom persuni f’dawn iċ-ċirkustanzi joħorġu (f’mument kritiku) riflessjoni tal-karattru veru tagħhom. Għax filwaqt li l-ħajja privata tal-persuni fil-ħajja pubblika għandha tibqa’ privata tajjeb li nifhmu li s-serjetà u l-integrità tal-persuna huma riflessi ankè fil-ħajja privata tiegħu jew tagħha.

Hija din il-problema tal-ħatra ta’ persuni bħal Alfred Mifsud.
