Malta’s Prime Minister has shockingly low standards – and we do too, which is why he is there and allowed to do this

Look at this briefing sheet being distributed for the EU presidency. Cyrus Engerer is right at the top, listed as the Maltese Prime Minister’s special envoy to the European Union and head of the Maltese government’s relations with the European Parliament, two posts created especially for him.

Only two years ago, Cyrus Engerer was convicted of crimes committed against his former lover, who had left him, and sentenced to two years in prison, suspended for two years.

The Appeals Court judge who confirmed the sentence had some pretty harsh words about the nature of his crimes, the criminal malice involved, and what appeared to be the attempts at blackmail, using further photographs contained on a pen-drive, by Engerer’s lawyer – who was Franco Debono, the government’s Commissioner for Law Reform.
