Egrant | Adrian Delia files judicial protest against Attorney General

The Opposition leader filed a judicial protest calling on Attorney General Peter Grech to give him a full copy of the Egrant Inquiry Report 

Nationalist Party leader Adrian Delia has filed a judicial protest against Attorney General Peter Grech's decision not to grant him a full copy of the Egrant Inquiry report.

In the letter Delia said he presented a judicial protest because he felt the Opposition should not be denied a copy of the full report compiled by Magistrate Aaron Bugeja, as this created a political imbalance in favour of the government, given that the Prime Minister was in possession of a copy.

The judicial protest was signed by lawyer Vincent Galea.

Delia had officially written to the Attorney General Peter Grech on Monday, requesting a full copy of the Egrant inquiry report.

On Wednesday evening, the Attorney General informed the Opposition leader that he would not be giving him a copy of the full inquiry, which is he said was yet to be passed on to the police for any action recommended by Magistrate Aaron Bugeja.
