George and Alfred Degiorgio, the two brothers arraigned for their alleged involvement in the Caruana Galizia murder have written a letter to the European Commissioner for Justice alleging a conflict of interest in their pardon request.
The Degiorgio brothers’ lawyer William Cuschieri told Didier Reynders that the government denied the request as its conditions implicate former economy minister Chris Cardona’s involvement in the Caruana Galizia murder and current OPM Minister Carmelo Abela’s involvement in the 2010 HSBC bank heist.
The brothers’ also mentioned involvement of Cardona and Abela in other serious crimes and appealed for justice to be distributed evenly. Both Cardona and Abela have since denied their involvement in any of these allegations.
Cuschieri highlighted that such a communication does not impinge the current criminal proceedings on the Daphne Caruana Galizia murder.
