If you were closely watching the Instagram photos we published recently, in our series of articles on Joseph Muscat's whereabouts, you may have noticed that the Muscat family was accompanied by officers of the Malta Security Service, during their trip to Paris. Given that JM has been out of government for one and one half years, and he is not currently providing any services to the Government of Malta, how was the expense of MSS officers on a protection detail, justified ? Muscat apparently has been receiving favours from government, for free; all he needs to is to ask.
We have previously reported that, after he left public service, but was still living in his residence in Malta, that he was protected by the two heavily armed security staff members. Their salaries were paid by government, although they were providing a strictly private service. Therefore, the public paid for Muscat's protection.
We wonder what other goods and services have been provided, free of charge, by the Government of Malta, to Joseph Muscat, and his family. Has he reimbursed government for those expenses and charges ? If not, why not. We recommend that an investigation be opened into the receipt of benefits by departed former government officials who are members of the Malta Labour Party, not just Mr. Muscat. He's not Malta's Godfather, Mr. Abela. Why are you treating him as such.
* I wonder what the Legat at the US Embassy in Malta would say if he found out that an officer with the Malta Police, assigned to Embassy duty, was in Paris with the former Malta PM awarded Most Corrupt EU official ?
