Labour MP Karmenu Vella has filed a judicial protest against a man who wrote a letter to The Times, alleging he had a criminal record and had illegally anchored in Ghadira Bay, in 1983, and smuggled in items.

In his protest, filed before the First Hall of the Civil Court, Karmenu Vella said that these allegations, by Salvu Felice Pace, and which were published in the letter – ‘Muscat’s Selective Attitude’, on 14 February, are all lies. He insisted his police record is clean.

The Labour MP said he was never summoned to court and has never been found guilty of any contravention, let alone any wrong doings.  Mr Vella submitted a copy of his clean police record as evidence.

Lawyers Jose Herrera and Veronique Dalli signed the judicial protest.
