Activists erected a protest cardboard cutout depicting Prime Minister Joseph Muscat as the emperor with no clothes, based on the fable by Hans Christian Andersen.

The protest action by the action group Reżistenza Malta followed revelations by the Daphne Project of e-mail correspondence related to the Panama Papers. The cutout also shows Dr Muscat as a salesman for the firm Henley and Partners, which is responsible for the controversial cash-for-passports scheme.

The group said that turning Maltese citizenship into a commodity betrays its fundamental worth and few would be ready to purchase it were it not for the access it provides to the EU.
