Muscat handed investigators a file full of documents that he had prepared ahead of the search, justifying the work he says was done in exchange for the Ac- cutor AG payments. It had been revealed back in Novem- ber that Muscat received €60,000 from Accutor AG, a company which in turn received millions from Steward Health- care when it took over the contract of the three state hospitals. Return to public life In a Facebook video posted on his wall, Muscat gave an overview of the day's happenings and in a telling comment, in- sisted that he would not be intimidated and promised to be more vocal this year after a two year sabbatical. "If there was anyone who thought that by doing so I would be intimidated, the result is to the contrary. If need be I will speak more, when I feel it's right and where I choose to do so. Next Saturday I have my birthday... I will start a new page. I would have done two years stay- ing quiet as much as possible, we'll start with a bit more noise through the inter- net and also face to face, meeting you because everything I did for the coun- try, I did with the best of intentions... I am not perfect but what I am being ac- cused of is not true and I hope and am sure that the proof I have provided will attest to this," Muscat concluded his video. e message hinted at a return to pub- lic life for Muscat in a year when the country has to hold a general election.
