MP Joe Mizzi sued for libel
The police yesterday filed criminal libel charges against Labour MP Joe Mizzi and the editor of the party’s news programme ONE News, on a complaint by Richard Cachia Caruana, former ambassador to the EU.
Mr Cachia Caruana claimed comments made by Mr Mizzi during the programme aired last Friday were criminally libellous.
Magistrate Francesco Depasquale has been appointed to hear the case and it is set to begin in the coming days.
