The right thing to do would be to also fire the Ministers who employed/contracted them back then. If it’s a bad thing now, it was a bad thing then. Clearly the objective of these terminations is merely that of keeping up appearances, a PR strategy.
The people within the knowledge group for this case would normally be Arnaud’s immediate superior – assistant commissioner Kevin Farrugia, the police commissioner Lawrence Cutajar, obviously Inspector Arnaud himself, and possibly Arnaud’s right-hand man. Joseph Muscat and Keith Schembri should not have been privy to the information, but they were. That’s five or six people in all.
It shouldn’t be hard to figure out who leaked the information.
Those opposing to this government’s corruption – NGOs, civil society and the Opposition party – need to be careful not to fall into the their trap. No one should lose sight of the endgame – justice, and doing what needs to be done to ensure that we never end up in the situation we are in today again.
This is not about PN and PL but about the corrupt and those who reject corruption. Anyone who reframes the issue into a partisan context is doing so to obfuscate, and manipulate minds and hearts.
So if Muscat is trying to elicit sympathy or playing the empathy card by playing the martyr, he can go stuff himself. He could have prevented Daphne Caruana Galizia’s death. Instead he now has her blood on his hands.
