Editorial: Witch hunt

POSTED: 10/12/12 1:19 PM

MFK-leader Gerrit Schotte accuses the media of a witch hunt, but so far we have not been able to detect any mistakes in the reports about the former prime minister’s attempts to obtain a statement of good behavior for Atlantis World Group and BPlus owner Francesco Corallo.

Schotte sent the media a copy of a fax he received on August 3 through the embassy in Rome. That document basically says that two ministries have nothing on Corallo. But the letter of May 26 told a different story: the Italians flat-out refused (no doubt in diplomatic language) to issue such a statement.

If Schotte wants to be really up front, he ought to make that letter available as well, but we figure that this does not fit his agenda.
