Election claims appeal confirms PL deputy's 'credibility'
The Attorney General's decision to appeal against a court judgment on alleged electoral corrupt practices confirmed the credibility of Labour deputy leader Anġlu Farrugia, the party said yesterday.
Dr Farrugia, who initially raised the case with the police, had claimed a man threatened two of his employees to vote for the Nationalists.
The first court had found no evidence to suggest corrupt practice, and stated there was nothing wrong with a person encouraging others to vote.
The Labour Party said the AG had decided to appeal despite "vilification" attempts by the Prime Minister and the Nationalist Party to downplay the fact that an individual had said she was threatened to vote PN or she would lose her job.
The PL said the facts presented in this case were well-founded and clear.
