Cachia Caruana sues MP for libel
Malta’s representative to the European Union, Richard Cachia Caruana, yesterday initiated libel proceedings against Labour MP Evarist Bartolo over comments he made on radio.
Mr Cachia Caruana said Mr Bartolo claimed on the Labour Party’s radio station that he used the Security Service against people he did not like.
The statement made by the MP was defamatory and libel-lous, Mr Cachia Caruana said, and was aimed at undermining his reputation.
The case was also filed against Kurt Farrugia as editor of the station. Lawyer Joe Zammit Maempel signed the writ.
