Dalli's hacked email could have led to investigations
John Dalli's hacked email accounts could have potentially exposed the alleged fraud that led to his resignation from European Commissioner for Health, di-ve.com is informed.
Sources told di-ve.com that the alleged hacking of email accounts of former minister, John Dalli, could have revealed the request made by the tobacco industry lobby for a meeting or provided clues and circumstantial evidence which were subsequently investigated by OLAF.
The alleged hacking of emails was brought to public attention by Mr Dalli himself earlier this year. While testifying from Brussels as a witness called by former PN MP, Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando, Mr Dalli had alleged that his email account server security had been breached. Mr Dalli had been called to testify during a meeting of the PN Executive Committee that had been convened upon request by Dr Pullicino Orlando to expel Richard Cachia Caruana from the party.
Mr Dalli had also alleged that his email account had been hacked from the European Commission Representation office in Malta and Transport Malta offices.
