Sven Giegold, spokesman for Bündnis 90/Die Grünen in the European Parliament and member of the working group on the rule of law in Malta and Slovakia in the European Parliament, following on the just released statements of the Labour Party and the PN as a reaction to his press release of yesterday, responses hereafter:
“I did not expect any applause by the Labour Party. But: It is political cowardice that the PN has been complaining about corruption and impunity for years but takes such a strong position against the opening of an Article 7 procedure. Article 7 is for the systematic violation of Europe’s fundamental values and this is just what the Council of Europe has found. It is a pity that the PN does not see the potential of an EU investigation on the rule of law. This could strengthen the voice of all in Malta who want to strengthen the rule of law on the islands”.
