Hundreds of fines issued to local politicians, business people and LESA officials over the past five years have been deleted from the agency’s systems, Times of Malta have reported. From speeding to parking tickets, these individuals dodged fines due to a LESA official reportedly marking them all as “cancelled“, “withdrawn” or “not guilty“.

Sources close to Local Enforcement Systems Agency reported that a particular vehicle “was forgiven about 200 contraventions”. Local Enforcement Systems Agency (LESA) CEO Svetlick Flores highlighted that the employee who deleted the fines was not authorised to do so, revealing that the official in question was removed from his role until disciplinary proceedings are concluded.

It is currently unclear whether or not a police investigation has been opened or the individuals who had their fines deleted will be revealed.

More on the story as it happens.

The set also includes luxury Nail Stickers with the brand’s iconic GG emblazoned on them and the set will be officially available in selected Gucci stores as from December 2.
