A service provider has a year’s data of disgraced former OPM Chief of Staff Keith Schembri, The Malta Independent on Sunday reported.

According to the sources speaking to the paper, a service provider has data detailing Schembri’s movements, phonebook contents, incoming and outgoing calls, text messages and his data GPS usage.

Local service providers have the necessary data to locate the missing mobile phone, the Malta Independent on Sunday reported.

Schembri remains under police investigation in connection to the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, tampering of evidence and the phantom job given to self-confessed middleman Melvin Theuma.

The disgraced former OPM Chief of Staff was arrested on 26 November and later released without a charge, after Electrogas director, 17 Black owner and Caruana Galizia murder suspect alleged that Schembri had used their doctor to pass him notes after he was promised a presidential pardon if he stuck to the script.

In court it had emerged that Schembri claimed that he lost his phone and has not been located since then.

Family doctor Adrian Vella who serves as a mutual doctor to both Schembri and Fenech, was arrested and interrogated after he allegedly acted as a secret messenger. Arnaud said that the doctor told the police that Schembri had handed him the notes but he did not even read them. Vella had just put them in his jacket pocket and handed them over to Fenech.

Schembri had resigned as Chief of Staff after Fenech began talking to the police.

Schembri’s mobile has been turned off since 26 November at around 5am on the day of his arrest. He was then taken in for questioning at around 6.30am. The night before, Schembri held a late night meeting at disgraced former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat’s private residence in Burmarrad.

Times of Malta had reported that the investigators had enough mobile data to establish when and where Schembri’s mobile was activated last.
