Former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and former Minister Konrad Mizzi are set to testify in court in a crucial sitting concerning the controversial Vitals hospitals deal.
The case was instituted by former PN Leader Adrian Delia, who has repeatedly called for the deal between the government and Vitals Global Healthcare to be scrapped.

VGH had been granted a controversial concession for the Gozo General Hospital, St Luke’s Hospital and Karin Grech Rehabilitation Hospital. Mizzi was the minister responsible for the project.
It has been revealed that the government signed a Memorandum of Understanding months before a request for proposals was even announced.
The company was forced to sell off their operations to Steward Healthcare just 21 months after starting amid growing financial debt, which stood at €36 million by the end of 2017. Its CEO, Ram Tumuluri, reportedly still made off with a €5 million bonus.
