Melvin Theuma underwent heart surgery and is now recovering at Mater Dei Hospital, sources confirmed with Newsbook.com.mt

Theuma was hospitalized last weekend and in a statement, the police said that his hospitalization was unrelated to the incident happened on the 21st of July.

Theuma admitted to being a go between in the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, and his testimony has served to implicate businessman Yorgen Fenech, who stands accused of complicity in the murder. Melvin Theuma had been granted a presidential pardon to turn state’s evidence last December.

Sources also confirmed with this Newsroom that following an angiogram, an X-ray of his blood vessels, Theuma required a stent. He is now recovering in hospital under strict observation.

Melvin Theuma was also hospitalized on 21st of July after being found injured in his Swieqi apartment, with the police reporting that he sustained stab wounds which appeared to be self-inflicted.
