Ms. Gomes said in the letter, CCed to Antonio Tajani, the President of the European Parliament and other Top EU officials: “I ask you to conduct an investigation on this website, to identify who is behind the slander directed at me and to demand the removal of all defamatory content published about the EP mission to Kazakhstan and any slanderous personal remarks again me.”
“I am also writing to Facebook with this purpose.”
Despite the news title states allegation against the MEP, the material to be covered lacks any proof whatsoever. A number of people took to the Twitter and Facebook to reveal the nature of this suspicious content as a “fake news”.
“Fake news portal behind the attack on MEP Ana Gomes.’ The judiciary must act against this crime of defamation and its perpetrators. Only then do the criminals stop using the Internet to create and promote lies”, Sofia Correia said in a tweet.
“It happens that, as soon as the defamatory content was published on the site, purporting to connect me to fraudulent activities, some members of the Maltese ruling party used this to slander me by further disseminating it, namely MP Rosianne Cutajar. This is most certainly because of my denunciation of the obstruction to justice in Malta in the fight against financial criminality and in the uncovering of the murder of Ms. Daphne Caruana Galizia,” she added.
