L-Orizzont editor Josef Caruana has won a libel case filed by former Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi, who took exception to an editorial about him titled ‘A proven liar.’

The editorial, published on 15 November 2010, referred to various instances when Dr Gonzi had been ‘caught’ lying.

Magistrate Francesco Depasquale deemed the article to be fair comment.
