The information was revealed by Muscat in response to a parliamentary question raised by Opposition MP Toni Bezzina.
“These social events included a special event in occasion of Charles Scicluna upon his appointment as Archbishop, receptions for high-ranking foreign dignitaries, receptions for civil society organisations and a Christmas party,” Muscat said.
Muscat argued that his predecessor Lawrence Gonzi had also hosted social events at the Prime Minister’s official residence in Lija – including receptions to mark the Malta International Fair and the Lija village feast.
“When [PL] Opposition MPs had asked [Gonzi] for information related to Villa Francia, he had responded that compiling the information would require a lot of work and no answer was ever provided.”
