The blatant conflict of interest of Joseph Muscat presenting himself as chief investigator of the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia and of taking alone decisions on presidential pardons that could infect his own cabinet was raised today in a tweet by Pieter Omtzigt who reports to the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly on the rule of law in Malta.

Here’s his tweet.

Omtzigt adds “The suspicions of personal & political interest are too strong, and the potential influence of the Prime Minister of Malta on the criminal justice system is too great.”
