Former EU health commissioner Dalli insists he is innocent

Former EU health commissioner John Dalli has insisted on his innocence in an alleged attempt to peddle influence, days after resigning.

He was asked about a fresh allegation that a businessman with links to him had sought 60m euros (£49m; $79m) from a Swedish company.

"These are really fantastic figures," he told New Europe TV in an interview.

Mr Dalli denies any wrongdoing and says he stepped down to protect his reputation.
