Who is Olaf Dalli?
Alternattiva Demokratika has released this statement. It is a fair assessment, but we really can’t get away from the fact that the first person John Dalli chose for his Commission cabinet is Harry Vassallo, former AD chairman.
It’s difficult to understand why he would have done that. Was it on Saviour Balzan’s recommendation? But even so. This is not to cast aspersions on Vassallo’s abilities or suitability for the post, not at all.
But why the ex AD chairman?
And incidentally, who’s Olaf Dalli?
Dalli case: Police Commissioner must now act fast
Prof. Arnold Cassola, Alternattiva Demokratika Spokesperson on EU and International Affairs, said: “We congratulate the Attorney General on his speedy examination of the Olaf Dalli dossier. The AG has this morning presented his conclusions on the Dalli case to the Police commissioner.
Commissioner John Rizzo must now act fast. In the name of justice and transparency he has to present the case as swiftly as possible in the Maltese courts since Malta’s name has been tarnished the world over and all Maltese want to know the truth about what really happened.
It is also John Dalli’s right to know exactly what he is accused of and what proof there is against him. This is a basic right for even the most callous of criminals. Moreover, the whole issue should be discussed as quickly as possible in the Maltese parliament”.
