PN leadership contender Adrian Delia this morning denied having or having ever had money parked abroad, as, he said, was alleged by journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

"I reiterate that I do not have any funds in any jurisdiction other than Malta, and never had funds at Barclays or any other bank, as alleged by Daphne Caruana Galizia," Dr Delia said.  

Ms Caruana Galizia has claimed that around £1 million in money from London prostitution was processed through Adrian Delia’s Barclays International account in Jersey.  She quoted a letter faxed to Adrian Delia from a London firm of solicitors.

In his submission to the court, published this afternoon, Dr Delia said that the allegations were made to undermine his credibility with the Nationalist Party councillors and members, during his leadership bid.

He also asked that the case be heard with urgency given that the election is to be held in 10 days' time.
