Watch: Scicluna admits passport scheme was a 'mistake', PN reacts

 - Thursday, 05 December 2013, 18:00
Update 2

Finance Minister Edward Scicluna this morning admitted that “it was a mistake” that the Individual Investor Programme, better known as the citizenship scheme, was rushed through Parliament the way it did, adding that the government and opposition are now in talks to rectify the situation.

Speaking in the European Parliament’s Econ Committee, Prof. Scicluna said the government had already withdrawn the secrecy clause that was initially suggested.

Part of his address was uploaded on the Facebook page of Nationalist MEP Roberta Metsola (see link below)

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=467520376698530&set=vb.406824526101449&type=2&theater

The clause Prof. Scicluna was referring to is still technically part of the law because it has not been officially withdrawn. After Parliament approved the law, the implementation of the legislation is still to be made effective via the publication of a legal notice. The government and the opposition are holding talks on how the scheme could be enacted in the best interests of the nation.

This morning, when asked on the scheme, Prof Scicluna also gave the first indication that the government will be accepting suggestions made by the Opposition to have the scheme linked to some “bonding”, as the minister described it. The people buying a Maltese passport will be coming to Malta and “ideally have property” here too, he said.

Malta “being short of... certain people of calibre” could therefore be an attraction for some people, Prof. Scicluna said, mentioning footballers in particular. “But it has nothing to do with taxation,” and if the people who get a Maltese passport do not reside here for long they will still pay their taxes elsewhere.

He also said that there will be some kind of capping to limit the number of people purchasing a Maltese passport every year. While Henley and Partners – who are contracted with the scheme – said they are expecting between 200 and 300 new Maltese citizens every year, Prof. Scicluna said the number 50 is being “seriously considered”.

So there will not be an invasion of Chinese with Schengen passports, the minister said, at one point referring to the company involved as “Henley something associates”.

He said that no due diligence is carried out on people who marry Maltese nationals and obtain a Maltese passport in due course. These marriages often end up being broken, he said.

The scheme is not linked with the budget which “has to stand on its own”. The money to be generated, which the minister put at being between €8 and €15 million, “is just a token”.

Prof. Scicluna said he did not blame anyone who questions the citizenship scheme Malta wants to introduce. “If I was an MEP here and I hear that in Malta they’re selling passports... I would say, I wouldn’t expect that from Malta.”

The minister’s admission of a “mistake” was not mentioned in the government press release that is being reproduced in full below

MEPs in the European Parliament’s Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee gave a warm welcome to Minister Edward Scicluna, a former MEP and Vice-chair of the Committee during an Exchange of Views (EV) held with the ECON committee on Thursday 5th December 2013. 

The coordinator of the EPP Mr Gauzes together with the S&D coordinator Elisa Ferreira had encouraging words for the challenging work that he was undertaking.

“I am very pleased with the overall positive feedback and encouragement received from MEPs from the various political groups sitting on the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs,” remarked Finance Minister Prof. Edward Scicluna after the meeting.

Prof. Scicluna spoke of the Government’s economic and social priorities and how these influenced this year's Budget. Among the main areas earmarked to be tackled as a matter of urgency include Malta’s dependency on oil, its low labour participation rate, its early school leavers and illiteracy, and other non-fiscal reforms including those for the courts and the health sector.

Prof. Scicluna also underlined the Government’s priority to introduce fiscal responsibility, and its goal to closing 2013 with a deficit of below 3%, and said that the divergence of opinion on this forecast between Malta and the European Commission will be resolved by the end of the year when the financial report will give a clear picture of the situation.

Prof. Scicluna also fielded questions on the budget coordination process at ECOFIN level, Malta’s cooperation with China as a strategic partner in the energy sector, the Banking Union and the Single Resolution Mechanism, the Common Fund, and the Individual Investor Programme.

With regard to the Draft Budget which was submitted to the Commission in mid October, Prof. Scicluna noted that while transparency is essential and that it is positive that EU Ministers are for the first time coordinating budget efforts, the publication of certain aspects of the Maltese Budget ahead of time caused some market disruption due to the speculation of impending changes to excise duties.

Speaking about Malta’s banking sector, Prof. Scicluna underlined how the stability and resilience of the Maltese Banking system showed itself during  the financial crisis, when other banks in other Member States required assistance.

Speaking about the Individual Investor Programme, Prof. Scicluna said that Government wanted to set up a Development Fund which such a scheme could tie with. What had happened was the marketing team completed their work prior to the setting up of the Development Fund.

He added that useful talks are being held between the Government and the Opposition prior to the publication of the respective legal notices about the detailed workings of the scheme.

PN statement

In its initial reaction, the Nationalist Party said that the Finance Minister had admitted before the European Parliament what Prime Minister Joseph Muscat did not want to admit to the Maltese people – that the citizenship scheme is a mistake.

In spite of the disapproval shown by the opposition and civil society before the scheme became law, the PM was stubborn and insisted that the scheme is approved, so much so that it started to be marketed abroad.

The opposition now expected the government to continue discussing amendments for the law to eventually reflect what the Maltese people wanted – that Maltese citizenship should not be put up for sale.

'Marketing effectiveness' is the goal to achieve good results. Prof. Scicluna stated " the government had already withdrawn the secrecy clause that was initially suggested". What type of direction is this?  This is the road map of PL on this island?

So the Nationalist Party is not negative.

During this EU session, Minister Scicluna started by stating that this citizenship scheme is not a deficit remedy exercise.

Last week Minister Scicluna stated that if this citizenship fail there will be some deficit concerns and new taxes needs to be introduced.

As an ex student I always had some serious doubts on your capabilities, today you have confirmed what I used to think about you.

I have to share this truth with you all. This I was told this morning near one of the lazy corners we find in Zebbug from an old farmer who Prof. Scicluna would refer as illiterate, as in fact he did refer that we are.

Today is a very sad day indeed when you here the man steering this country's finances make a fool of himself in front of our partners (we are part of the EU Eddy - they are not a distinct body). The whole country was conned - we have a government with no idea how to run a country, no roadmaps and no common sense. But we have to lump it!

He made a million slips in that embarrassing reply but the reference to "Henley and something" was intentional, He was trying to downplay the role of Henley, pretending he barely knows them, which makes it easier for him to blame their marketing of the scheme. He does not want to be associated with them, even though they've been running the Show all along.

Very strange that such statements are being uttered by Government.  Hundreds of examples of Maltese in various sectors ranging from medical  to ICT to Telecoms to nuclear physics to architecture were discriminated against in the early 1980s, 1996 to 1998 and now in 2013 in Malta have taken up top positions in Europe, Middle East, Australia and North America.  If we are short of certain people in certain sectors we should give them work and residence permits and ascertain that a knowledge transfer does take place while they are here.   This is what happens even in the so called backward countries

I am dying to see what those who defended the scheme will be saying now! What will Privipedia say now after this? The government knew theschjeme wont work as even his consultants warned him against it! But it wanted to steamroll over the opposition and the people. The labour government painted itself in a corner and now it wants talks with the opposition. The opposition should walk out of the talks and let the government sort the mess it created.

I am no politician but I wrote weeks ago that Henley & Partners were order takers from Joey, Scicluna et al. The order was : Complete SECRECY - FIXED PRICE and no other CONDITIONS attached.
Henley's obliged and delivered the order.
When things started going wrong and Malta's name dragged in mud, then the Minister had the gall to say that Henley's were the ones to suggest secrecy, "because with secrecy, the scheme (scam) would sell better".
Now Scicluna digs deeper and blames Henley's again for MISUNDERSTANDINGS due to their marketing errors(?)"!
What a team of fools, what great harm have they done! Now they should all eat crow, cut off all the dead wood (they would be in a real fix if they did that) and repair, if at all possible, some of the damage. They have four years to do it although with the Power Station we do not need, with the massive gas tanks moored at Delimara (if they materialize), Malta's ship may be grounded for a long, long time. The problem is that they will tie the country and future governments for a full 18 years to buy gas from the one and only company they signed the contract with!

You are so very predictable Eddy - you do not comment on articles that do not go down well with you.   Stick to the subject in this case Edward Scicluna's ridiculous performance and  gaffes and comment accordingly but then you will never accept the fact that the PL government is just made up of people who are incompetent as they seem to always keep on making mistakes which they then try to rectify by shifting blames on others.   As to the sponsorship of 'a Maltese-Australian millionaire' - state his name so we can find out for ourselves whether or not he has 'shady' connection' but then I do not suppose you will do that because as is the usual PL system you only throw mud and do not substantiate your arguments as we did  in the case of Shiv Nair.

Eddy what does this have to do with the news under discussion. Just admit that the geriatric finance minister has really and truly screwed up big time.
As usual you try to justify each and every disaster your government does but as I always tell you Labour does not appreciate you as they even ovelooked youn for the Zammit Clapp Board.

Do not speak too soon Victor - the PL might nominate him for Gieh ir-Repubblika.

Eddie who calls himself Eddy  is your surname with one "e" or two "e" s?
Why are you not calling Simon , Simon Buzulotti anymore ?
Please provide concrete proof of what your alleging.
And please stop insulting our intelligence with your inane and totally out of scope outbursts.

Joe: Simon "Buzullotti" should be asking for proof since the accusation was levelled at HIM on One News, and has been repeated almost daily, but Simon & the PN remained SILENT !!!  WHY ?? Had the news been false, the PN would have immediately denied the report !!!

Eddie, it is ABSOLUTELY just that! The sale of Maltese citizenship! No matter how the likes of you try to spin it.
