Daphne murder suspects link Cardona, Abela to serious crimes in letter; argue conflict of interest

Jun 2 2021 Share

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.

Malta one of UK’s prime candidates for green list

Malta one of UK’s prime candidates for green list
Jun 1 2021 Share

Two UK media houses, the Independent and The Express, have reported that Malta has the potential to make it onto the country’s green list in the upcoming review on June 3rd. Malta joins the ranks alongside Balearic Islands of Spain, Finland, Fiji, The Cayman Islands, Rhodes and a list of other countries as potentially opening up to British tourists. Making it onto the green list means that British residents returning from Malta will not be required to quarantine, but must take a PCR test within first two days of arrival.

With the decision set to take place on 3rd June, the measures will come into full effect on 10th June. Being left out of the original batch of countries for the UK’s green list came as a surprise to many Maltese. But the achievement of herd immunity and the successful vaccination rollout could very well change that situation, prompting the UK to add Malta on the green list. The UK is currently combatting a third wave of COVID-19 from kicking off, with experts warning that the reopening plan set by Boris Johnson could be in jeopardy.
