Sources said the incident happened in Dr Refalo’s family home, after he was informed that his son had allegedly been sharing images of his ex-girlfriend without her consent.

Dr Refalo was informed about the alleged revenge porn by the outraged father of his son’s ex-girlfriend, the sources said.

It is not clear when Dr Refalo will be charged.

Dr Refalo is one of parliament’s longest-serving MPs, having first been elected in 1987.

He served as Gozo Minister between 2013 and 2017, but despite having obtained the highest number of votes of any candidate in Gozo in the 2017 general election, was frozen out of cabinet.

Last year, he was made chairman of national heritage agency Heritage Malta.
