In his first full day as Prime Minister, besides choosing the members of the Cabinet, Dr Robert Abela also continued to select or confirm the officials who will be assisting him in the Office of the Prime Minister.
Sources have stated that Neville Gafà is not going to be confirmed as an official in Castille or in other public posts. TVM is informed that this morning Neville Gafà sent in his resignation from the post he had occupied as a person of trust to Mr Clyde Caruana, who has started running the Prime Minister’s Secretariat.
Neville Gafà has been mentioned in recent days during the public inquiry into the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia when it was alleged that on the eve of the journalist’s murder he had been seen taking photographs of the journalist in public. He was also allegedly involved in the alleged bribery regarding the issuing of medical visas to Libyan citizens who wanted to come to Malta for treatment. Some years ago Mr Gafà had also been removed from his post as an official within the Health Ministry.
