MaltaToday understands that an agreement hammered out in August 2019 with former tourism minister Konrad Mizzi has given Steward Healthcare an "escape clause", that turns any termina- tion of its concession into a gov- ernment default. The wording is part of an agree- ment in which government is ac- knowledging that a €28 million loan from Bank of Valletta to Steward Healthcare is acknowl- edged as "lender's debt".
