Minister for Finance Edward Scicluna initiated legal proceedings against the former leader of the Opposition Simon Busuttil. 

The legal action was taken “after on Friday morning, Simon Busuttil tweeted a message containing false allegations against the Minister which implicated that the Minister could have possibly had a role in money laundering activities,” a finance ministry statement read.

“Such allegations are totally unfounded and are aimed at tarnishing the Minister’s reputation. Therefore, Minister for Finance Edward Scicluna did not have any other option other than to initiate legal proceedings for defamation in order to protect his integrity.”
