"Finance Minister Edward Scicluna yesterday attempted to play down the serious concerns on the Vitals Global Healthcare (VGH) deal," shadow finance minister said in a statement. Rather than protecting the taxpayer as he is duty bound to do, Scicluna yet again opting to protect his Cabinet colleagues, particularly Minister Konrad Mizzi.

"Mizzi sold three of our hospitals for €1 to a company that had no experience in the health sector. After failing to honour its obligations, Vitals sold the concession to another company making hundreds of millions of euros profits in the process, behind the people's back," de Marco said.

He said that Minister Scicluna at the very least should have taken steps to suspend the sale of the hospitals, pending an investigation into the matter. However, as happened in the case of Pilatus Bank, Minister Scicluna played the three monkeys game and refused to talk or listen to the serious concerns being raised.

This is why the Leader of the Opposition Adrian Delia has taken this matter to court in a bid to recoup the hospitals and to safeguard the interest of the Maltese taxpayers
