Israel's ambassador to Italy and Malta has denied accusations of putting undue pressure on the Maltese government to hire an Israeli firm to build a power plant, the Times of Malta reported on Monday.

Testifying before a government committee last week, Malta's Infrastructure Minister Austin Gatt accused former prime minister Ehud Olmert and Ambassador Gideon Meir of using inappropriate methods to convince the Maltese government to favor an Israeli company in a power station tender.
