Captain Morgan issues clarification on donation to PL

Captain Morgan refers to reports stating that the company donated €108,000 to the Labour Party in its latest fundraising campaign. 

These reports are misleading and could, and should, have been avoided had the facts been verified, instead of forging ahead to report contorted interpretations made by politicians and other commentators.

The facts are as follows: the donation to the Partit Laburista was made by the Labour Party’s Naxxar committee, and the funds were collected from the residents of Naxxar and other donors. Those donors included Captain Morgan, but our donation of €3,000 — which was within the legal limit — constituted but a minuscule fraction of the total amount collected.
