The PN's ethics board has concluded that MP Hermann Schiavone did not breach any PN instructions or regulations when he had met businessman Yorgen Fenech to seek sponsorship for a conference.

MP Hermann Schiavone had suspended himself from the PN and requested that he is investigated for his behaviour when this news emerged.

Fenech's name was thrust into the limelight when it was reported that he was the owner of 17 Black, a company which was named as one of two which would pay 2 million euros into the Panama companies owned by Minister Konrad Mizzi and OPM chief of staff Keith Schembri.

The ethics' board said that it felt that it did not need to recomend any further procedures. It concluded that while there was no breach of laws or regulations, and that there was no bad intention, this was a case of lack of good judgement. The board recommended prudence.

The PN's Administrative council, which met on 13 August, accepted the recommendation and informed the PN's Executive Committee.
