Sadeen Education Investment Ltd, the company established in Malta by the Sadeen Group to develop the American University of Malta, is only licensed to carry out the activities of a higher edu- cation institution since it does not have enough learning programmes for a uni- versity licence. Originally unveiled by the Labour ad- ministration as a flagship project for the south, the controversial decision to grant land at Zonqor Point without pub- lic tender was met with a 3,000-strong protest in Valletta. Now, Sadeen is ignoring the educa- tional watchdog by retaining the 'U' in its 'AUM' logo, which it promotes on its own website On 11 March, action was taken with a judicial letter to Sadeen, sent in accord- ance with laws that prohibit licensed higher education institutions from us- ing the word "university" in any of the media or their advertising literature. An NCFHE spokesperson said using the word university was "misleading. The American Institute of Mal- ta is not a Uni- versity."

The resignation allows Opposition leader Simon Busuttil to move head- long on his party's criticism of the privatisations managed under the aegis of embattled minister Konrad Mizzi. Busuttil has said the police should investigate the pri- vatisation of the St Luke's, Karin Grech, and Gozo hospitals, after Mizzi was found to have opened an offshore company in Panama.
