BRUSSELS, 25-Jun-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — There is evidence that points to the possibility that up to 88.000 Schengen visas and an unknown number of medical visas have been illegally sold without proper checks in a country where ISIS-terrorists are active.
Meet Mr. IVAN GRECH MINTOFF who recently presented evidence to the Maltese courts of a far-reaching scandal involving political appointees in the Maltese Prime Minister’s office sold Schengen and medical visas to Libyans illicitly.
Mr. Grech Mintoff’s testimony continues the work of recent murder of the anti-corruption journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in Malta. The scandal points to high-level political direct involvement in visa trade and human trafficking, that could undermine public trust in the Schengen visa system and potentially threaten European security arrangements.
Also present will be a number of MEPs that demand an investigation.
Branislav ŠKRIPEK, MEP, that was first to raise this issue in the LIBE Committee.
The documentation presented during Mr. Ivan Grech Mintoff’s testimony to Maltese courts, vital recordings of evidence as well as new information will be made available.
