Exclusive: Middleman’s insurance against being murdered

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Newsbook.com.mt is reliably informed of the existence of two  copies of a letter written by Melvin Theuma, the middleman of the plot to assasinate Daphne Caruana Galizia as a precaution in case he was murdered. Along with the letter, Theuma also depsited a copy of the tapes he had recorded.

Keith Schembri is mentioned in that letter along with others; all this in the context of the assasination of the Maltese journalist. Schembri’s name also features in the tapes.

Schembri, the disgraced former Chief of Staff and best friend of Prime Minister Muscat denies any wrongdoing. He was arrested by the police but later released as the police felt that there was nothing left to investigate.

Letter placed in a safe place

Theuma, at one stage, was fearing for his life. He then let it be known that he had written a letter documenting all that had happened, including names of people involved. He placed the letter in a safe place together with the tape recording he had, among them tape recordings of conversations with Yorgen Fenech, who is being accused of the assasination of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Besides depositing all in a safe place, Theuma also gave a copy of everything to another person.

The middleman then let it be known that he had done all this in the hope that others involved in the assasination plot would realise that even if he would be murdered the information would not be buried with him. This he believed would serve as a deterrent which could keep him safe.

“This was a kind of insurance which was a success”, said our sources.

Letter now in safekeeping

The letter together with other documents in in the possesion of the Magistrates. In the possesion of the magistrate there are also the incriminating tapes. It is clear that Melvin Theuma used to record his conversations with Yorgen Fenech. These letters and tapes are expected to feature prominently in the case against Yorgen Fenech. Newsbook.com.mt is reliably informed that there exist letters, tapes and a contract which also incriminate Keith Schembri.
