Two weeks ago, Times of Malta exposed a massive benefit fraud racket running into millions of euro. 

The scandal centres around a doctor-turned-MP who resigned in late 2021 when police first started probing the racket. 

But there's more to it than that: from forged signatures and documents, to doctors who say they were duped and a prime minister who insists it's all under control and always has been. 

There's also a lot that we still don't know about the scandal, which was jointly exposed by Times of Malta journalists Jacob Borg and Mark Laurence Zammit. 

In this video, Zammit explains the racket from start to finish - and asks for your help to bring the truth to light.
