Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Panama Papers were ‘a great setback’ for the government when they came out, former Deputy Prime Minister Louis Grech testified on Wednesday as the public inquiry into the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia continued.

“Panama was definitely a setback. We had implemented so much of our manifesto and achieved civil rights. There was a lot of good. One should not be defined only by the bad aspects, but also by the good. Yes, it was a great setback. Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri created an enormous setback. I had spoken to Mizzi, who had told him that he had done something ethically wrong but not legally wrong”, he said.
