Nov 26 2020 Share

Reports have revealed that former minister Konrad Mizzi refuses to testify in the Caruana Galizia public inquiry and went on to call it a politicised “charade”.

Mizzi was due to testify on Friday after being removed from his position and minister and from the Labour Party in the past few months due to Mizzi’s connection with the Panama Papers and 17 Black.

The former minister found issue with his relevance in this case and said that it makes little sense for him to testify in front of two PN members.

The world is in mourning after the loss of football legend Diego Maradona and Naples look to immortalise the life of the icon by renaming their ‘San Paolo’ stadium after Maradona.

Naples mayor Luigi de Magistris has stated that it will be a quick and easy process due to the world’s desire and love for the legend and that they have already started the process.
