Former minister Chris Cardona dismissed any claims that he knew of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murder and went on to suggest that he was framed for murder as he testified in the Caruana Galizia public inquiry.

In a 3-hour session, Cardona barely made any reference to the Caruana Galizia’s exposé on his Germany trip and claimed awareness of a ‘frame-up letter’, which he will reveal at the ‘opportune moment.’

Amongst other questions, Cardona was asked about the time Joseph Muscat fainted during an event at Le Meridien two days before the Caruana Galizia murder and the existence of a kitchen cabinet.
