A statement issued by ISOLAS and Fiduciary has put “entirely beyond doubt” the fact that Albert Isola properly disclosed all his interests in his Declaration of Members’ Interest form, the Gibraltar Government has said.

This comes after the two companies sought to “clarify and correct factual inaccuracies” they said had been made by the Opposition party in their statements in the row.

Last night, the Government called on the GSD to answer a number of questions following the controversy sparked by Mr Isola’s late filing of his declaration.

These include “…was Daniel Feetham aware that Elliott Phillips filed his Declaration of Interest form six months late, only days before that of Albert Isola?”

If not, the Government asks, when and from whom did Mr Feetham find out that Mr Phillips had filed his Declaration of Interest form late?

“Given how negatively Mr Feetham considers that Mr Isola's late filing of his Declaration of Interest form should be viewed, what actions is he considering taking against Mr Phillips in respect of his own "woefully late" filing of his Declaration of Interest form?”

The Government also asks if Mr Phillips will now confirm and explain why he filed his Declaration of Interest form late.
