Cacopardo refuses to divulge PM’s secret document

Alternattiva Demokratika candidate Carmel Cacopardo is claiming he is in possession of a “written document” in which the Prime Minister “privately” expressed disagreement with the Malta Environment and Planning Authority board’s veto on his re-appointment as investigating officer to auditor Joe Falzon.
“I know that privately you expressed yourself against what happened and I am in possession of a document which shows this. I would not publish it in respect of the person who forwarded the document to me,” wrote Cacopardo.
Asked by MaltaToday why he is quoting a document which he is refusing to divulge, Cacopardo insisted that he cannot add anything to what he had written on his blog.
Neither would Cacopardo reveal the nature of the document citing the need to protect the identity of a third person.
Cacopardo was replying to the Prime Minister’s reply to a question on Cacopardo’s resignation from the Nationalist Party during yesterday’s press conference.
The Prime Minister said he “respected” Cacopardo and valued his criticism on environmental matters but refrained from commenting on Cacopardo’s allegation that he was not allowed to continue his auditing of MEPA, “because someone was uncomfortable with my presence.”
Cacopardo added that, “whoever knows of wrongdoing and does not act is not able to lead. That is why I left the PN.”
