Judge Ray Pace resigns
Judge Raymond Pace has resigned.
The Department of Information said that the judge had called on President Abela to personally submit his resignation, saying his position as a judge was no longer tenable, independently of the outcome of the court proceedings he is undergoing.
Judge Pace is currently being held in custody after having been arraigned on Thursday and accused of bribery and trading in influence. However the Magistrates' Court allowed him to call on the President at San Anton.
The prime minister this morning presented an impeachment motion against Judge Pace but this will now be dropped.
