Opposition Leader Simon Busuttil today requested Mr Justice Antonio Mizzi to hear appeals against a court decision to investigate whether top government officials broke money laundering laws with urgency.

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, his chief of staff Keith Schembri and Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi all appealed against a magistrate's decree that a criminal investigation should be launched.

Appeals were also filed by Nexia BT’s Brian Tonna and Karl Cini, as well as Kasco Group’s Malcolm Scerri and Times of Malta's former managing director Adrian Hillman.

The application requesting the magisterial inquiry, filed by Busuttil last week, gave a timeline of the main Panama Papers events.
The court applications filed by Dr Busuttil today were signed by Jason Azzopardi.
