KURT SANSONE NUUVERA has moved for- ward on plans to open a medicinal cannabis facility in Malta by acquiring ASG Pharma. The news was announced yesterday by the Canadian company, which is one of three international firms that have obtained a letter of in- tent from Malta Enterprise. Parliament is currently debating a Bill to make it possible for medicinal can- nabis to be manufactured in Malta. Economy Minister Chris Cardona told Parlia- ment last week that apart from three companies that had a letter of intent, there were another three firms interested in opening shop in Malta. Nuuvera said that through the acquisition it would be setting up a hub for the production and distribu- tion of oil-based medicinal cannabis products to the emerging Euro- pean market.

The parliamentary committee is currently discussing a sudden increase in workers at Was- teserv before the last election. However, yesterday's meeting was overshad- owed by MaltaToday's publication of a cache of emails dating back to the last Nationalist legislature, showing the three MPs interfering in recruitment at the same agency. The Government is insisting that the three MPs could not possibly "judge something which they had done themselves".
