A former secretary-general of the Nationalist Party got into a heated confrontation with a ONE cameraman following an emotional protest in Valletta last night.
“You should go cover them, and not a peaceful protest,” Borg Olivier said to a cameraman, making reference to Keith Schembri and Konrad Mizzi.
“Go. You are hurting people and provoking people and pushing people as you tried to do to me in front of everyone, go!”
More journalists gather as he continued to berate the cameraman, who he claimed had pushed him.
Another man jumped in to say that those that defend corrupt people, are corrupt themselves.
“If you want to do your work, do all of your work,” Borg Olivier continued. “Go outside Keith Schembri’s door and ask him if he is corrupt, ask him who 17 Black belongs to, go now. The protest is done now, go, not just pushing people behind their backs as you did to me just did.”
Borg Olivier then walks away into the crowd.
The heated argument came after a peaceful protest held outside of Castille last night turned into a march towards the makeshift Daphne Caruana Galizia memorial outside of the law courts.
Following a solemn rendition of the Maltese national anthem, a segment of protestors headed to Parliament, where they surrounded a minister and junior minister in their vehicle in what was described as a chaotic scene. Two police officers were injured in the ensuing fracas.
