Green MT takes new Legal Action for Libel and Damages


Green MT and GRTU Director General in
his capacity as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the company of Green MT,
managing a not-for-profit scheme, a national Waste Management Scheme covering
75,000 households with the responsibility for the management of 50% of Malta's
Packaging Waste national obligations, is
proceeding with additional legal action for libel and damages against
L-Orizzont, the National daily newspaper owned by the General Workers Union.

L-Orizzont in its issue of Friday the
28th of February 2013 published in its front page defamatory accusations of
illegal activities against the Director General of GRTU Vince Farriugia,
accusations which are solely aimed at taking away and injuring the reputation
of the Director General, GRTU and Green MT.

Green MT and GRTU, by virtue of reputable,
independent and external auditors, abide by all their obligations at law that
the Malta Financial and Services Authority as well as the Inland Revenue,
together with other authorities, including MEPA, impose on Waste Management
Providers.

In the same article L-Orizzont once
more dishes out the fallacious allegation made by convicted ex-Sliema Mayor
Nikki Dimech that Green MT Ltd received favourable treatment from the Sliema
Local Council. This is a fabrication also aimed at injuring the reputation of  Green
MT, and which is also subject to
legal proceedings for libel.

The public
is now aware that both L-Orizzont and the GWU have over the past two years
embarked on a never-ending besmirching campaign against the GRTU, Green MT and
its officials AND Vince Farrugia personally. This vindictive and defamatory
campaign is clearly and solely aimed at cheaply and conniving enticing small
businesses to leave GRTU and join GWU.
