MP Karol Aquilina this morning tabled evidence that showed that Ali Sadr set up a Maltese company to build “socials (sic) and mass housing projects”.

Ali Sadr is still the owner and director of Malta International Construction Company Limited, a Maltese company registered at the same address in Ta’ Xbiex as Pilatus Bank.

Ali Sadr is already part owner in a family business in construction and has been indicted in the United States for a major construction project in Venezuela that breached US sanctions laws against Iran.

Ali Sadr is currently waiting trial in the United States.
