Dalli resigns as EU Commissioner

John Dalli resigned as EU Health and Consumers Commissioner on October 16th, with immediate effect, following an investigation by the EU’s anti-fraud office, OLAF. The investigation was into complaints that a Maltese entrepreneur was using his links with Mr Dalli to request money from tobacco producer Swedish Match, in return for influencing a possible future revision of EU tobacco legislation. Mr Dalli categorically denies any knowledge of the entrepreneur’s activities, but decided to resign in order to be able to defend his case.
