Alternattiva Demokratika has called on Prime Minister Joseph Muscat to intervene in the controversy surrounding John Dalli after the European Commission declared that it won't change its position despite Maltese authorities saying they had no case against Dalli.

A spokesperson for the European Commission told journalists yesterday that this declaration did not affect the Commission's decision, insisting Dalli's position remain politically untenable. "Since Mr Barroso is ignoring the decision of the Malta Police Commissioner as if it did not even exist, Alternattiva Demokratika demands that Prime Minister Joseph Muscat takes immediate steps with the EU Commission Presidency to verify why the findings of the Malta Police Commissioner are being completely ignored by them," AD spokesperson Arnold Cassola said.

Acting chairman Carmel Cacopardo added he had brought the matter of the OLAF investigation into Dalligate and the behaviour of OLAF Chief Giovanni Kessler during the Core Group meeting of MEUSAC (Malta-EU Steering and Action Committee) on May 31st 2013 which meeting was addressed by the Prime Minister on the forthcoming meeting of the European Council.

"When we put forward the same request then, the Prime Minister said the government would await the conclusions of the police investigation before deciding on its future actions," Cacopardo said.

He urged Muscat to ensure that the European Council "brings Barroso and OLAF to order".

THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT BARROSO AND KESSLER HAVE TO GO. IN THE INTERESTS OF A UNITED EUROPEAN FRONT, IT IS TIME THEY PACK THEIR BAGS AND GO. NOW.

I agree fully that Barroso has to resign as he is responsible for forcing Dalli to resign without giving him and chace to defend himself. Maybe there are others who were alos involved in the strang case but we will never know

Yes lets start ordering the prime minister about, and next month we will invade Libja.
