Austin Gatt ‘refusing to be part of media circus’ on Enemalta questions Former minister Austin Gatt, whose stewardship of state utility Enemalta came under the critical lens of the Auditor General, has stated he is refusing to be "part of the media circus" after having ignored questions put to him by the press on his role in the state's fuel procurement policy. The NAO's review of Enemalta's fuel procurement policy reported the absence of documentation over the corporation's hedging strategies, and a lack of ownership as to who was ultimately responsible for setting Enemalta's hedging policy and strategy. EXPLAINER | Auditor General's report on Enemalta fuel procurement As apparent as the overlap between the ministry and the government was, it was also clear that the ministry was directly involved in hedging-related decisions. In an email dated 10 November 2009 sent to Enemalta Chairman Alex Tranter and copied to a number of individuals, including Finance Minister Tonio Fenech, Austin Gatt wrote, "I would like to make clear that the direction to go for tariff stability in 2010 is a ministerial direction and therefore I assume responsibility for any variances between the actual market price and the SWAP price in 2010." Gatt, who between 2003 and 2010 was responsible for Enemalta, had told MaltaToday he was "not interested" in what the Auditor General had to say on the operations of the fuel procurement committee. "Irrespective of what the media may wish and no matter how they may want to picture me as a result, I refuse to be part anymore of the media circus," he wrote in The Times today. "My decision is not to comment on all political matters following my retirement from politics and not simply not to comment on the Auditor General's report," Gatt said, now chairman of the Hili Company, a subsidiary of the Hili Group. Gatt did not run for election in 2013 and instead led the PN's electoral campaign. "My refusal is to speak to the media on this and on all other political matters. I have absolutely no problem in commenting on the Auditor's report in the proper institutions, be they the Public Accounts Committee or others. And I have no obligation, ethical, political or otherwise, to talk to the media," Gatt wrote today. The former minister also took umbrage at the fact that he was not called to be interviewed by the Auditor General in the two years that the report was being drawn up. "The authors did not even bother to ask me for a comment or put to me any queries or ask for any clarifications." In a reflection on his career, Gatt - etched in the history books as a 'Rottweiler' of politics - said he will "not argue, comment and be part of controversies unless there are great distortions of fact and will take everything as it comes. Retirement is not about living your previous life."
