PN councillors who voted in the 2004 election for Gonzi and Dalli were filmed by micro-cameras in the polling booth. The footage was used to identify those who had not voted for Gonzi, and they were patiently excused from their duties as councillors over the next three years. The footage was later found on the hard disc of one PN functionary at Stamperija.

B’isem wiehed biss diga l-PN imissu jisthi ... ZEPPI L-HAFI.
I was the prime minister's canvasser. First between 1980 and 1982. At the time he was the Leader of the Opposition. There were times when I slept outside his house - I remained as a canvasser until about 1988 or 1989. - The Times 29.5.96
There is, with a twist here and there, much political capital to be made out of Eddie Fenech Adami’s dealings with a known criminal, Zeppi l-Hafi. – editorjal The Times 29.7.99
A convicted murderer recently slapped with a suspended sentence for threatening to kill Nationalist MP Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando, helped in the Independence Day celebrations, angering the backbencher. In fact, Dr Pullicino Orlando refused to attend Tuesday’s mass meeting and asked his party for an explanation. Dr Pullicino Orlando confirmed to The Times that he had not attended in protest. The event was otherwise well attended by the parliamentary group. (Nationalist MP Jesmond Mugliett was also absent but could not be reached yesterday.) Dr Pullicino Orlando said he was invited to deliver a speech on Sunday as part of the PN’s activities and “was glad to do so”. But on Monday he got to know that Charlie Mangion, known as Iż-Żubina, was involved in this year’s activities. “Mr Mangion was recently given a six-month jail term suspended for 18 months and fined for threatening to harm me and others involved in the pro-divorce movement,” Dr Pullicino Orlando pointed out. Since he felt involving Mr Mangion in the organisation of the activities was “highly inappropriate”, Dr Pullicino Orlando informed Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi, who, he said, was obviously unaware of what had happened. “(Dr Gonzi) forwarded an e-mail I sent him about the subject to (PN general secretary) Paul Borg Olivier. To date I have not heard anything from the latter,” the MP said. “In these circumstances I felt uncomfortable attending what has been, to me, a highly anticipated annual event for well over 30 years.” A spokesman for the PN said: “Mr Mangion’s involvement with others was limitedly related to identifying għana singers, which is a restricted and niche sector.” Singers were required for some local folklore activities organised by one of the party’s sections. “In no way does this limited participation change the strong stand against his actions committed against Dr Pullicino Orlando, publicly condemned by the PN,” the spokesman added. Mr Mangion was charged in July, together with Guiseppe Cutajar, for making threatening comments on their Facebook pages against Dr Pullicino Orlando and now Labour prospective candidate Deborah Schembri, who headed the divorce movement. He received a six-month jail term suspended for 18 months. Mr Mangion’s run-ins with the law go back to the early 1970s. On December 18, 1975, when he was 21, he was jailed for 14 years after he was found guilty in a trial by jury of murdering 17-year-old Spaniard Josè Luis Monroy Garcia. He was earlier found guilty of the attempted murder of another Spaniard, Ricardo Yague Llorente,
Hadd ma jista’ jnehhilna minn mohna il-kaz ta’ Louis Galea li mar il-habs ta’ Kordin biex ikun xhud fiz-zwieg tal-kriminal Alfred Bugeja il-Porporina liema cerimonja saret fil-habs u mxandra dirett fuq it-TVM. Dan il-kaz kien anke tqajjem fil-Parlament minn Alfred Sant fis-seduta tat-Tnejn 18 t’April 1994. Dakinhar Louis Galea kien irrifjuta li jikkummenta.
Fl-1989, habsi li kien ghadu kemm harab minn Kordin kien mar ghar-refugju fil-Kwartieri tal-PN f’Tal-Pieta u talab ghal Guido Demarco.
