MaltaToday Friday, September 18, 2020 6:19:00 PM EAT

Pieter Omtzigt said : “It cannot be for the Maltese government to decide, after the inquiry has begun, that it should cease its work before the board itself determines that the terms of reference are properly fulfilled Such a power could be used to prevent the inquiry from hearing evidence that the government does not wish it to hear. This is a violation of the inquiry’s independence, beyond any shadow of a doubt,” External link

Pieter Omtzigt said : “This gives the impression that the government has something to hide and is willing to tolerate, condone and even defend impunity. This, risks reversing any recent progress in enhancing respect for the rule of law, which would be a dramatic setback to the rehabilitation of Malta’s international reputation. I would therefore respectfully request that you withdraw your purported limitation on the time frame for the inquiry’s work, refrain from any future adverse comment on the inquiry, and ensure that other Labour Party politicians also refrain from any such comment,” External link

Pieter Omtzigt said : “This does not seem to me to set a fixed time limit. Instead, it seems that the time limit is deliberately flexible, in order to allow the inquiry, the time it needs to fulfil its task.

This is the real bottleneck that allows impunity for high-level political corruption, as identified by GRECO” External link

Pieter Omtzigt said : “It has become clear that the Maltese authorities remain inherently incapable of resolving these cases, due to institutional shortcomings and an apparent lack of political will. Since many of these cases have a cross-border dimension, I therefore call upon the Maltese authorities to establish joint investigative teams with the competent authorities of relevant States,” External link

Pieter Omtzigt concluded ( about Commission ) : “For the Venice Commission, it was very important that reforms be adopted ‘as the result of a process of wide consultation in society.’ The Assembly recommended that reforms should be ‘designed and implemented through an open, widely inclusive and transparent process’. How the reform proposals are prepared, and whether they meet the clear requirements of the Venice Commission opinion, will affect not only their legitimacy and acceptance by the general public it will also be a defining test for the international credibility of the Abela administration,” External link

The relevant authorities must be ready to take immediate, strong action as soon as the inquiry issues its report. I also welcome the important developments in the criminal proceedings, although I note the widespread conviction that the full scope of the case has not yet been revealed. The investigation must vigorously pursue every lead, no matter how high up it goes” External link

Pieter Omtzigt said ( about President Trump ) : “The Turkish military incursion into northern Syria should be halted and in no circumstances should it be allowed to jeopardise the continued detention of Daesh combatants, which is currently assured by the Syrian Democratic Forces that Turkey is attacking,” “In this respect, I note that President Trump has stated that Turkey is now responsible for ensuring that captured Daesh combatants remain in detention and that Daesh is not permitted to re-establish itself. If these detainees escape, they represent a serious threat to regional and international security. At least 4,000 are from Council of Europe member States and they would pose a grave danger to our societies should they escape and return unsupervised” External link

Pieter Omtzigt said : “This inquiry should be conducted by a truly independent panel chaired by a retired or international judge and including trusted representatives of civil society with no political or government links,” “It should concentrate on how this assassination could have been prevented, how similar murders can be avoided in the future and what needs to be done to ensure that cases of high-level corruption such as those disclosed by Daphne Caruana Galizia are properly investigated without journalists having to risk their lives,” External link
