Prosecutors in Malta charge a prominent local businessman with being an accomplice to the murder of anti-corruption journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in a 2017 car bombing. Three men were charged earlier with carrying out the actual bombing.
VALLETTA , Malta (AP) — Maltese prosecutors on Saturday charged a prominent local businessman as being an accomplice to the murder of anti-corruption journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in a 2017 car...
He was also arraigned on a further charge: promoting, organizing or financing a group with the intention of committing a crime.
Ten days earlier, Malta police stopped Fenech as he was sailing away from Malta on his yacht.
“What we now expect is the prime minister to leave office and to leave Parliament,” Corinne Vella, one of the slain reporter’s sisters, told The Malta Independent after the arraignment of Fenech.
Two of Muscat’s ministers also have stepped down, including one who was questioned.
An alleged go-between in the bombing has received immunity from prosecution for alerting authorities to Fenech’s purported involvement.
Caruana Galizia had alleged in her blog eight months before her death that a company called 17 Black Ltd. that was listed in the documents was connected to Maltese politicians.
Schembri has said that 17 Black had been a potential client for his business group.
Fenech has declined any comment about the alleged ownership.
A previous EU parliamentary mission from a year ago criticized “lack of police action” following the killing and described developments in Malta as “a source of concern for the whole of the EU.”Read more: The Associated Press
