Mercieca stood on the PN ticket in the last general election but on Sunday the party dis- associated itself from him, following an in- vestigation by the party's ethics committee. In January 2017, the Police Commission- er was ordered to investigate an incident in which the treasurer of the Gozo NGOs' Association, Joseph Camilleri was allegedly threatened by the group's secretary outside a courtroom, after testifying in a libel case against it-Torca. Camilleri claimed that Mercieca had ap- proached him in the corridor outside the courtroom and had asked whether the treas- urer had sought permission from the associ- ation to exhibit the documents in court. Camilleri said he had replied by saying that he had spoken to the association's president. Mercieca had then allegedly said "issa ġejja tiegħek," which loosely translates to "you'll get what's coming to you". He was cleared of any wrongdoing.
