Nationalist MEP candidate Stefano Mallia this morning filed a libel suit against the editor of the newspaper Kullhadd, lawyer Toni Abela.

He complained about a front page article published yesterday and entitled entitled, €1,000 Kuljum, saying it was meant to harm his reputation.

Standing outside the court house this morning, Mr Mallia said the Prime Minister Joseph Muscat had promised a clean and positive campaign and yet he had been attacked repeatedly by the Labour Party media.

The article was about a contract from the former Resources Ministry which Mr Mallia had allegedly benefit from.
