Prime Minister Joseph Muscat told journalists today that the waiver given to those 1,000 individuals identified as having bribed Enemalta officials to tamper with their smart meters conforms to the Laws of Malta and the government did not change the law in this regard.

Addressing journalists following a visit to Farsons brewery in Mriehel, he said that it emerges that there may be more than the 1,000 individuals that have already been identified.

Referring to another Enemalta official who was suspended yesterday, he said that indications show that more is yet to emerge regarding the case.

He highlighted that in cases electricity tampering, Malta can either take criminal steps or request the offenders to pay back their dues accompanied with a fine.

Asked if the government would be giving instructions to the police to investigate the persons identified to have bribed the Enemalta employees, he replied saying that the government does not give instructions to the police.
