Watch: Franco Debono's comments are 'freedom of expression' - Owen Bonnici

Law Commissioner said PM was 'most corrupt politician' in Malta's history

Justice Minister Owen Bonnici was curt on Tuesday when asked about Law Commissioner Franco Debono’s comments regarding Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, saying they were part of "freedom of expression".

Dr Debono did not mince his words in a blog post last week, describing the Prime Minister as "the most corrupt politician" in Malta’s history.

Asked about the comments, Dr Bonnici said he had "nothing to add to what had been said".

Dr Debono had also said the “time had come” to speak out on the Prime Minister, saying he would be able to speak better “tomorrow”.

He has not elaborated on his comments since.

Dr Bonnici echoed comments made by the Prime Minister, who also cited freedom of expression when asked about the Law Commissioner's comments.
