Auditor sues for libel
A former auditor at the Pietà local council has filed libel suits against the editor of Kullhadd and against Pietà counsellor and lawyer Malcolm Mifsud over a letter published in the paper.
Auditor Anthony J. Cassar filed the two suits in the Magistrates' Court against Dr Mifsud as the author of the letter and against editor Felix Agius for allowing it to be published in last Sunday's issue of Kullhadd.
Dr Cassar claimed that the letter contained libellous material which included allegations that Dr Cassar had been involved in "political manoeuvres" when he worked at the counsel and that he was not honest in his profession.
Lawyer Peter Fenech signed the suits.
