Justyne Caruana steps down as Minister for Gozo

Justyne Caruana has been forced to step down as Minister for Gozo.

She handed in her resignation after newspaper claims about her husband’s friendship with the alleged mastermind behind the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

The Times of Malta reported that Dr Caruana was asked to resign by Prime Minister Robert Abela on Sunday.

She was appointed Gozo minister in 2017, replacing veteran MP Anton Refalo.

Dr Refalo, who has been tipped to make a possible return to the Ministry of Gozo, posted a beaming photo on Facebook on Monday morning.

Good morning from Gozo! Have a nice day, and a good week!
