The below is a statement by the Malta Gaming Authority in relation to local media articles detailing the arraignment of former MGA official Jason Farrugia.

The MGA would like to clarify that the employment relationship with Mr Farrugia was terminated in December 2021 following an internal investigation initiated by the MGA into alleged wrongdoings by the same individual. The results of these investigations were passed on to the relevant Authorities and the MGA has been, and remains, at their disposal and providing all required assistance. In the meantime, the MGA continues to take all the necessary steps to ensure the integrity of its data.
