Former AD chairperson and independent candidate Arnold Cassola has written to Police Commissioner Angelo Gafà to investigate various individuals whose names are already in the public domain and who are linked with murder suspect Yorgen Fenech.

In his letter, Cassola noted that, so far, various individuals who were employed at the Office of the Prime Minister, had some form of links to Fenech, who stands accused of complicity in the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, or his associates.

Cassola asked the Police to investigate the following:

  • Former disgraced minister Konrad Mizzi who held 19 meetings with Fenech at Castille;
  • Former disgraced OPM Chief of Staff Keith Schembri who held five meetings with Fenech at Castille;
  • Minister Michael Farrugia who ordered the Planning Authority to allow high-rise developments in Mrieħel on the same day a meeting between himself and Fenech;
  • Parliamentary secretary Rosianne Cutajar for brokering a property deal;
  • OPM security officer Kenneth Camilleri who acted as a messenger;
  • Lyndsey Gambin,
  • Charlene Bianco Farrugia who had travelled with Fenech;
  • Head of OPM Customer Care Sandro Craus who had given state witness Melvin Theuma a phantom job.

“It is not normal to have at least eight individuals who are based at Castille to have some form of relationship or links to the murder suspect and his associates,” Cassola remarked, adding that this was the basis for his request. He also asked the Police Commissioner to investigate other OPM officials who served during Muscat’s tenure and establish whether they were linked to Fenech.
