Sort Out Your Own Problems Before Undermining Malta, Muscat Says After Casa Cocaine Allegations
PN leader Adrian Delia doesn't stand up for his MEP after affidavit on his cocaine habits
Prime Minister Joseph Muscat today hinted that PN MEP David Casa should focus on sorting out his own alleged cocaine habit before “trying to undermine Malta”.
Without referring to Casa by name, Muscat said at the end of his speech today that “there are those who would do best to try and solve their own personal problems before trying to undermine and subvert our institutions”.
One of Casa’s former aides said in a sworn affidavit, published by MaltaToday, that the PN MEP used to consume up to €600 worth of cocaine on the weekend while surrounded by his friends and aides at hotels in Attard and St Julian’s. The former aide also alleged that Casa used to ingest cocaine in his office at the PN’s headquarters but that this stopped after September 2017, which is when Adrian Delia was elected leader.
Casa has dismissed the allegations as a sign that his work “is hitting where it hurts”, while his staff have issued a statement to confirm they never witnessed their employer snorting cocaine.
A spokesperson for the MEP told Lovin Malta that he will only submit himself to a drug test if Labour’s parliamentary group agrees to do likewise.
Fellow PN MEPs Roberta Metsola and Francis Zammit Dimech have yet to comment on the allegations against their colleague, while Adrian Delia didn’t mention the case at all during his interview on NET FM this morning.
