A number of persons have already been spoken to with respect to these investigation, and such investigations are ongoing.

The police pointed out that the full report had been passed onto them by the Attorney General on the day it had been transmitted to him, and had been examined soon after.

“While the Malta Police would like to give further details about its work, such details cannot be given at the moment as these would either be of a detriment to the ongoing investigations, or the Malta Police is legally bound by secrecy not to revel such details,” the police added.
