One of the young men in the Labour campaign video Lkoll Uċuh Maltin has a criminal record for fraud: Bjorn Charles Borg.
Last June he was found guilty of defrauding the state of €93,000 and was sentenced to two years in prison, suspended for four years.
International students who paid the Department of Education for services they received here in Malta were not given a receipt and Borg, who handled the money, kept it himself.
No wonder he’s in. Or rather, he isn’t in at all, because his prison sentence was suspended.
There is no way the Labour Party could not have known about this. Bjorn Charles Borg’s defence lawyers were Labour shadow minister Jose Herrera and Labour star candidate Edward Zammit Lewis, one of Joseph Muscat’s closest allies in the party, and the friend who travelled with him on a wine-tasting trip to Asti round about when this case occurred.
