The Maltese ambassador to Finland Michael Zammit Tabona has stepped down following a Facebook post where he compared German chancellor Angela Merkel to Adolf Hitler.
In a Facebook post on Friday – Victry in Europe Day – Zammit Tabona said that “75 years ago we stopped Hitler. Who will stop Angela Merkel? She has fulfilled Hitler’s dream to control Europe.”
The social media post, which has since been deleted, was immediately met with controversy.
