Fr. Mark Montebello’s recently released biography of Dom Mintoff has been blasted by his two daughters, who described the biography of the former prime minister as “profoundly unethical and immoral”.

Anne McKenna and Yana Mintoff have distanced themselves from the biography entitled ‘The Tail that Wagged the Dog’.

“We disassociate ourselves from the book by Mark Montebello, which is riddled with inaccuracies, factual distortions, unsubstantiated allegation, hearsay and lies about Dom Mintoff”, the two said in a statement.

McKenna and Mintoff said that “this book contains material that does not reflect the truth and encroaches on the private life of numerous people”. They also revealed that no members of the immediate family were talked to.

“We wish to make it clear that there are many inaccuracies contained within this attempted biography in perception, detail and conclusion”, they said.

The book delved into the personal life of the former prime minister where he was at a point portrayed as an adulterer and someone who abused his wife.
