A number of banners have appeared lambasting Nationalist MEP David Casa over allegations that he is a cocaine user. At least two banners, one in Pieta and one in Msida, appeared on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, with different messages emblazoned across the black and white banners.
The banner in Msida reads “I spend €700 on cocaine every weekend”, while the banner in Pieta reads “Follow the White line”.
The banners appeared just days after the allegations against Casa broke on Sunday
A former aide to the PN MEP made the allegations against his former boss in a sworn affidavit. The self-proclaimed whistleblower said that Casa would buy between €600 and €700 worth of cocaine during wild parties over the weekend, that included copious amounts of drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes.
It was also alleged that Casa had used cocaine in the PN’s headquarters up until September 2017. Casa has denied all the allegations.
Reacting to the banners, David Casa said they were being funded by Labour
“In the last months I have endured threats of being dragged through court by the FIAU and by Keith Schembri’s Pilatus Bank lawyers. I’ve been accused of misusing EU funds, now proven to be complete lies, and have been targeted by PL activists calling for me to be hanged,” he said.
“Yesterday, while we gathered in Valletta to demand truth and justice one year after the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, Partit Laburista continued its heavily-funded hate campaign with posters all over Malta. They will stop at nothing to prevent me from continuing my work. Only over my dead body will they succeed,” he ended.
