False emails on Mistra “a smokescreen” for JPO scandal – MLP

The Labour Party yesterday issued a condemnation of what it described as a “disgusting campaign of intimidation” in connection with the Mistra scandal and the personal involvement of Nationalist MP Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando.
The issue concerns false emails implicating Labour secretary-general Jason Micallef, a businessman and a journalist as having been privy to information concerning the Pullicino Orlando affair before Labour revealed it in the last week of the elections.
In an interview on XFM Radio last week, Pullicino Orlando was reported to have stated how Labour got to know of the Mistra deal, which concerned the lease of Pullicino Orlando’s land to Domenic Micallef, the owner of Tattingers discotheque in Rabat, for the construction of an open-air disco in Mistra.
Labour said the false emails were a puerile attempt at intimidating the very people implicated in these emails, to act as a smokescreen for the Mistra scandal.
“It is shameful that, right up to this day, Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi and the PN have not yet taken steps against Pullicino Orlando after he was caught lying more than once on his personal involvement in the Mistra scandal. Labour insists Pullicino Orlando is not fit to represent the people in parliament.”
