Emails seen by this newspaper confirm that Transport Malta has known about Y-plate vehicles be- ing parked illegally, yet no action was taken to prevent these illegal- ities. Police question serial fraudster as benefit fraud investigation widens Benefit fraud cases concentrated in Tarxien, Żejtun and Birżebbuġa KURT SANSONE POLICE are widening their probe into the benefits fraud racket that has flagged 160 cas- es of abuse and implicated for- mer Labour MP Silvio Grixti, MaltaToday has learnt.

"This individual may have been involved in the actual forgery of medical documents and would have most certainly done it for money," the sources said. It is unclear at this stage what working relationship Grix- ti and this individual had be- tween them.
