Media reports in Malta indicate that attorneys employed by disgraced former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat are hard at work, attempting to rewrite recent history. They are objecting, on the record, to the blunt truth, when stated, about Muscat's corruption-ridden administration, his own personal criminal activities (and those of his wife, Michelle Muscat), and those of his close associates, formerly in government, but still in the Labour Party, the country's Maltese version of the Mafia.
Don't let him change the truth, especially through sleazy and slippery third parties paid to, at this late stage, minimize his dark and illegal acts, which have placed Malta in a precarious financial position, heavily in debt, which must be repaid, with interest, by future Maltese taxpayers, whilst criminals formerly in government enjoy the proceeds of crime. Do not soften how he damaged Malta, both domestically and in the international community.
He is just attempting to clean up what is left of his legacy, following in the footsteps of his brutal predecessor, Dom Mintoff, whose statue reminds us daily of how evil a leader can be. Muscat was no saint, misjudged by political enemies; remember him for what he is, warts and all, not for what he wants us to think he was, some sort of saint.
