Every time we pay an electricity bill, we pay more than we have to because of Konrad Mizzi – Casa

The inclusion of SOCAR in the supply chain for no legitimate reason is costing taxpayers €40 million every year and that means we have to pay more for electricity because of Konrad Mizzi,  Partit Nazzjonalista Head of Delegation David Casa said in a live debate against Alfred Sant on Xarabank yesterday.

Casa referred to SOCAR as one of the most corrupt energy companies on earth and challenged Alfred Sant to identify one legitimate reason for Electrogas not opting to buy gas from Shell. Alfred Sant did not reply, a statement issued by Casa’s office said.

“We can no longer talk about suspicion of corruption. Now we have proof that transfers have been made to 17 Black,” Casa said.

“We now also have the email were it is clear that Mizzi and Schembri were planning to receive €150,000 every month from 17 Black – enough to purchase one apartment every month. It appears that enough for at least the first 8 instalments had been received,” Casa said.

In response to Alfred Sant’s suggestion that exposing corruption and seeking justice was harming Malta, Casa made it clear that it was criminals in power stealing from the Maltese people that were harming Malta and challenged Sant to use his influence to ensure that corrupt politicians were removed from office.

“Not only have those that have been caught red handed remained in office, not only have they not been brought to justice, but the institutions that are meant to protect the Maltese people have been intentionally compromised to protect Mizzi and Schembri. This is what is bad for country and bad for the Maltese and Gozitan people,” Casa said.
