PN leader Adrian Delia has asked Malta’s newly elected PM Robert Abela to explain why Muscat’s ex-Chief of Staff Keith Schembri’s mobile appeared active on the app Signal. Schembri told investigators he allegedly lost his phone.

Yesterday evening Net News publish a screenshot taken from the app Signal which shows that a number listed as that of Keith Schembri joined the app. Allegedly, Schembri joined at 6.44pm. PL MP Clayton Bartolo allegedly also joined at the exact same time. The screenshot didn’t show a date.

It’s possible that Keith Schembri is using a new sim card linked to his old number.
