AD asks that Minister Mallia’s behavior be investigated

 

In view of the George Farrugia revelations in Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee, Alternattiva Demokratika Chairperson, Prof. Arnold Cassola, said: "Whilst Dr Mallia is correct in saying that -as a lawyer- he is bound by professional secrecy, he certainly went beyond professional ethics when he threatened Farrugia he would reveal his misdemeanor unless he made it up with his brothers. Blackmailing others is not included in professional ethics.”

 

"Dr Mallia’s behaviour should be investigated by the Chamber of Advocates," concluded Professor Cassola.

Alternattiva Demokratika titlob li tkun investigata l-imġieba tal-Ministru Mallia

 

Fid-dawl tar-rivelazzjonijiet ta’ George Farrugia fil-Kumitat tal-Kontijiet Pubbliċi tal-Parlament iċ-Chairman ta’ Alternattiva Demokratika il-Prof. Arnold Cassola qal li “waqt li Dr Mallia hu korrett li jgħid li bħala avukat huwa marbut b’sigriet professjonali, ċertament li mar lil hinn mill-etika professjonali meta hedded lil Farrugia li jiżvela l-imġieba tiegħu jekk ma jiftehmx ma ħutu. Li tirkatta lil ħaddiehor mhux parti mill-etika professjonali.”

 

"L-imġieba ta’ Dr Mallia għandha tkun investigata mill-Kamra tal-Avukati," temm jgħid il-Professur Cassola.
