Opposition leader Adrian Delia on Wednesday did not answer questions about his alleged involvement in a money laundering racket, inviting reporters to set an appointment with him instead. 

The Sunday Times of Malta has reported that financial crimes investigators had found there was a reasonable suspicion that Dr Delia had been involved in laundering the proceeds of London brothels in the early 2000s.

Shortly after receiving detailed questions about the FIAU’s findings from Times of Malta, Dr Delia called a press conference in which he said that he had learnt that financial transaction documents dating back to that period had been forged with his fake signature. 

Asked whether he would be calling for a magisterial inquiry into the FIAU findings , Dr Delia said he had already asked a magistrate to look into whether or not his signature had been forged on the documents. 

On Wednesday, the Opposition leader was evasive when asked questions on the matter, insisting he was late for another appointment. Journalists were instead directed to make an appointment with him.

Dr Delia has yet to reply to the questions sent to the PN last week.
