Following an entire edition of Bondiplus dedicated to political dissenter Jo Said, whose recent foray in the news propelled him to centre stage, Said has written to Commissioner of Police John Rizzo, Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi and Opposition leader Alfred Sant to complain about Lou Bondì’s talk show.
Said has alleged corruption in the government, a claim which stems from a private conversation he held with Nationalist MP David Agius, but his claims have been given top priority in newspapers It-Torca and KullHadd.
On Monday, Bondì drove home the point that Said had been a contender for the post of Malta Tourism Authority chairman and that Said had been called in for questioning by the Commissioner of Police.
“The compound effect he is deviously trying to imply is that I am a liar, so much so that the Police Commissioner sent for me for some criminal investigation,” Said wrote, referring to threats he says he received by two unidentified plain-clothes police officers who stopped outside his house in Mellieha. Said thanked the Commissioner for his assistance.
He has asked the Commissioner of Police to investigative “the malicious intent of Lou Bondì” and for failing to ask him for a comment.
