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.
