Driving tests fraud: ADPD unites with civil society in demanding Ian Borg's resignation

Cassola urges Standards Commissioner to investigate Minister Ian Borg

MEP candidate Arnold Cassola has called upon the Standards Commissioner to investigate Minister Ian Borg's involvement in the alleged wrongdoing.

“I urge you to launch an inquiry into the ethical (not to mention criminal) allegations against Minister Ian Borg,” Cassola conveyed to the Commissioner shortly after the scandal came to light.

WhatsApp exchanges with a Transport Malta official responsible for overseeing driving examinations reveal that former Transport Minister Ian Borg forwarded a list of test candidates who needed special attention to ensure their success.

The conversations indicate that government officials would simply highlight the names of these candidates to Mansueto. Mansueto would then attempt to assign them a "friendly" driving examiner or expedite their driving test.

Cassola contends that the Minister jeopardized the safety of thousands of drivers and pedestrians by recommending and instructing his subordinates to pass candidates who were not capable of passing without his intervention.

"Our country’s reputation is at stake. We cannot permit someone with such corrupt tendencies to guide the nation's foreign policy," Cassola asserted while claiming a significant abuse of power.

Adrian Delia: ‘For Abela, people are just votes’

Expressing his dismay, Transport spokesperson Adrian Delia said the scandal marks another wrongdoing by the Labour government within a short span of time, reflecting the "inequality" between people, and even posing a danger to people on the streets.

He pointed out that the revelations made it evident that the government seems to prioritise electoral gains over the safety of its citizens on the roads. 

Delia questioned why Prime Minister Robert Abela has not taken any action to hold responsible parties, such as Borg, accountable for their actions. 

Delia went on to suggest that, in Abela's eyes, people are reduced to mere votes, implying a lack of genuine concern for their well-being.
