Yet when one is sorry, one does not stop at making an apology. One tries to make amends, to curb the impunity that made the assassination possible, and to ensure nothing of the sort ever happens again. And two months later, not a single recommendation found in the report has been implemented by the Prime Minister. So the apology was nothing but a lie, lip service.
It’s not normal to have a bevy of sitting ministers indicted by a public inquiry to be responsible for the assassination of a journalist.
And it’s definitely not normal for people to support and vote for these ministers. People these ministers call idiots.
We will suffer consequences. Would you put your money in a bank that has a bad reputation? Or invest with a financial practitioner with a bad reputation?
Premeditated murder is not a mistake. It’s a crime. Earning millions of euros illicitly (off taxpayers’money) is not a mistake. It’s a crime. Corruption in the prime minister’s office is not a mistake. It’s a crime.
But in spite of all his attempts at reputation laundering, Muscat will go down in history as the “2019 MAN OF THE YEAR IN ORGANIZED CRIME AND CORRUPTION”
