Hearings

SEE ALL

A committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes and contributions from speakers.

11-02-2019 - Alleged financial crimes, tax evasion and tax avoidance in Malta

TAX3 06-02-2019 - 10:48
Public hearing on “Alleged financial crimes, tax evasion and tax avoidance in Malta"

Several money laundering cases have been published in the recent years affecting different EU Member States. Given that some Maltese political exposed persons have been mentioned in different money laundering cases, an exchange of letters took place between the TAX3 committee and Maltese authorities in order to better understand the government's role and actions taken the Maltese authorities.

The Maltese Minister of Justice Mr Bonnici will hold an exchange with TAX3 members to follow-up on the letter sent by the Committee on 7/12/2018. This exchange will be followed by a public hearing with Stephen Grey, journalist working on the Daphne project and Matthew Caruana Galizia, the son of Ms Caruana Galizia. Ms Caruana Galizia was an investigative journalist who was killed by a bomb in 2017 and her death remains a mystery.
