Tista' taqra bil- Malti.
Yorgen Fenech, the owner of the company based in Dubai 17 Black and Chief Executive of the Tumas Group and Electrogas director, has denied the allegations made against him by David Thake on Friday’s Xarabank programme.
In a statement, Fenech said that he doesn’t usually respond to media reports and but felt that this case could not be ignored. Fenech said that Thake made false accusations against him and did not produce any evidence to substantiate that allegations during the programme.
Fenech was referring to the question Thake made to the head of the Nationalist Party Adrian Delia on Xarabank. In his question, Thake suggested Fenech made a bid of €50,000 to the PN if MEP David Casa was not re-elected to the European Parliament. Delia denied that such an offer had ever taken place and claimed that he has no ties with Fenech. Later during the program, Pierre Portelli and the MP Kristy Debono also denied these allegations.
Fenech said that this was a lie from beginning to end, while stressing that it was aimed at damaging his reputation. He went on to say that while trying to stay away from political arguments and public debate, there comes a time when one needs to say enough is enough.
He invited Thake to substantiate what he said or withdraw the statement made. Fenech concluded by saying that failing to do so will show the dishonesty of Thake.
