Alcohol found in jail on Good Friday
 ALIGN=

Alcohol masquerading as water was found in plastic bottles at the Corradino Correctional Facility, prompting a fresh internal inquiry, the Times of Malta has learnt. The alcohol discovery was made on Good Friday in a hall at the Corradino Correctional Facility used by prisoners, who had together mounted a pageant on the passion of Christ. According to sources from the prisons, warders first raised an eyebrow following the performance on Maundy Thursday, when one specific prisoner had been seen acting suspiciously. They said the prisoner was seen arguing with one of the other actors in the pageant. He was subjected to a breathalyser test, which he failed. On Good Friday, the warders carried out an inspection in the hall where the performance was being held and found four two-litre plastic bottles which contained alcohol instead of water. The prisoner’s cell was searched and a bucket was found, which the authorities believe was used to ferment wine, to which fruit and sugar were added to create a form of sangria. Sources said that the bottles were taken up to the performance hall from the division where this prisoner is being kept. The bottles were not detected during inspections...

De-listing of Pefaco raises another question mark for MFSA
 ALIGN=

Pefaco has been de-listed from the Malta Stock Exchange, months after its trading was suspended. It was also fined €60,000. The Malta Financial Services Authority had first flagged the fact that the company was in breach of the rules in April 2017, as it had failed to published its financial reports for the year ended December 31, 2016 but the company failed to publish any of the subsequent ones. Grupo Pefaco was established under Spanish law 20 years ago, and is present in 13 countries on three continents. Its subsidiary Pefaco International is registered in Malta and has shares listed on the Malta Stock Exchange. Read: African gaming company targets €47m income The MFSA also said on its website that Pefaco International "failed to publish a Company Announcement containing information on legal proceedings in which the company is involved", but gave no further details. The Financial Times reported two years ago that French prosecutors are investigating whether the Bolloré Group – which already operates 17 ports in Africa – was helped by the chairman of Grupo Pefaco, Francis Perez (the CEO of the Maltese subsidiary), to get concessions for ports in Guinea and Togo.

Soros foundations to quit Hungary amid political hostility
 ALIGN=

George Soros' Open Society Foundations will close their office in Budapest and move their eastern European operations to Berlin, Austria's Die Presse newspaper reported on Thursday. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has blamed Soros, a Hungarian-born U.S. financier, for a host of ills and pushed through legislation cracking down on non-governmental organisations called the "Stop Soros" laws which drew international criticism. The Hungarian news web site 444.hu said the Open Society Foundations office would shut by August 31 and move first to Vienna then on to Berlin. Reuters was not been able to immediately reach the Open Society Foundations either in Budapest or New York. Orban, a self-styled champion of what he calls an "illiberal democracy", has long been at odds with Soros' network of NGO's which promote liberal values around the world. The Hungarian premier has for years waged a campaign against migration into Europe, an issue at the centre of his re-election bid which resulted in a third landslide victory this month. Orban's Fidesz party said it would deliver on campaign promises to crack down on NGOs that promote migrant rights. The Organisation for Security and...

Facebook Inc's privacy practices were cleared by auditing firm PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in an assessment completed last year of the period in which data analytics consultancy Cambridge Analytica gained access to the personal data of millions of Facebook users. Facebook had established and implemented a comprehensive privacy program and its privacy controls were operating with sufficient effectiveness to provide reasonable assurance to protect the privacy of covered information, PwC said in a report submitted to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) dated December 2017 on the FTC website. The report was an assessment of the period from February 12, 2015 to February 11, 2017. The Wall Street Journal earlier reported on Thursday on the PwC assessment submitted to the FTC. PwC declined to comment when contacted by Reuters. Facebook has been under scrutiny from lawmakers across the world since disclosing that the personal information of 87 million Facebook users wrongly ended up in the hands of Cambridge Analytica, a Britain-based firm hired by Donald Trump for his 2016 US presidential election campaign.

MFSA’s chairman to-do list

Most operators in the financial services sector welcomed the appointment of John Mamo as the new chairman of the Malta Financial Services Authority. Many had contributed for the industry to grow. Now the priorities need to change and quality rather than quantity of operators should be the guiding principle of who gets a licence to operate from Malta. Prof. Mamo will not be an executive chairman and will work on a part-time basis (though the MFSA will have a CEO). But he is still responsible, together with the board of governors, to define the strategy the regulator needs to improve the image of the industry internationally after various incidentstarnished Malta’s reputation as a respectable financial services centre. He must surely be updating himself with the various challenges the financial services authority faces. In his first comments to the media, he indicated that the MFSA can no longer adopt a business-as-usual attitude and acknowledge that it needs to address past failures that are still tainting the jurisdiction’s image internationally. The Pilatus Bank debacle is possibly the first item on his to-do list. The US authorities’ charges against its chairman may not have...

Campaigners planning protest as PM Muscat promotes passport scheme in London
 ALIGN=

Campaigners are planning a protest outside a gala dinner event to promote Malta’s individual investor programme which is expected to be attended by Prime Minister Joseph Muscat in central London on Friday, The Guardian reports.The Guardian reports that Malta’s “cash for passports” scheme is also under the scrutiny of EU authorities. There are fears that the country is selling EU citizenship to wealthy non-residents with little connection to the island.UK Labour’s deputy leader, Tom Watson, yesterday called on foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, to challenge Muscat on the investigations regarding the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.The Guardian reports that the challenge was made as the Prime Minister attended the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in London.Watson said Johnson must take action “over this very serious case … It is clear not enough progress has been made in the investigation of this terrible murder.” Malta’s government has been told to take urgent action to implement EU anti-money laundering rules, as MEPs rang the alarm about the dangers for journalists investigating financial crime following the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia last October.The pressure intensified as the country’s prime minister, Joseph Muscat, attended the Commonwealth heads of government summit in London amid further calls for him to provide reassurance that her death is being fully and impartially investigated. Seventy-two MEPs, from six political groups, added their names to an open letter from 250 international authors, including Salman Rushdie, Margaret Atwood and Ian McEwan, demanding the removal from office of Jason Micallef, the chairman of Valletta 2018, the European Capital of Culture.The European parliament hopes to step up pressure on Maltese and EU authorities over the killing of Caruana Galizia. A special delegation of MEPs has called for meetings with the Maltese authorities and the European commission’s vice-president in charge of safeguarding the rule of law, Frans Timmermans.Sven Giegold, the German Green MEP who convened the group, has long accused the commission of not doing enough. “The European commission has to overcome its light-touch policy on the rule of law problems in Malta and urgently act as the guardian of European values,” he said.

National Book Chairman says he is ‘embarrassed’ by the PL after 17 Black revelations
 ALIGN=

National Book Council Chairman Mark Camilleri has said on Facebook that he is embarrassed by the Labour Party after last night’s revelations regarding OPM Chief of Staff Keith Schembri and Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi.It was revealed on Wednesday that 17 Black was listed as the ‘main client’ and ‘possible Payer/Sender’ of Tillgate and Hearnville, the offshore Panamian companies owned by OPM Chief of Staff Keith Schembri and Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi. The information came from leaked emails obtained by German paper Süddeutsche Zeitung, and published by Times of Malta as part of the Daphne Project.He said that while he will continue insisting that the PN and its politicians are engaging in a classist war against the working class and social development, he said, “it is definitely unjustifiable that a minister and chief of staff remain stuck to their seats of power after they get caught with clear proof of money laundering and corruption.” He said that such things used to happen under the PN. “As a member of the PL and a government official I feel embarrassed with this, and there are many others like me.”A consortium of 18 news organisations are pursuing the stories that had been followed by slain journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, and will be publishing the work. The news organisations include the New York Times, The Guardian, and Süddeutsche Zeitung, the newspaper behind the Panama Papers revelations. The project (dubbed the Daphne Project) was organised by an investigative non-profit organisation called Forbidden Stories.

MEPs lambast Valletta 2018 Chairman Jason Micallef and demand his immediate sacking
 ALIGN=

A large number of MEPs from across political groups have described Jason Micallef’s behaviour as undignified and unacceptable and called for his immediate removal from the post of Chairman of Valletta 2018. The MEPs referred to a letter published by PEN International and endorsed by 250 international authors that expressed outrage at Micallef's behaviour. The 72 MEPs stated: “We share the outrage expressed in this letter. The vilification of investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, even after her assassination, and the calls for the clearing of the memorial in her tribute in Valletta and for banners demanding for justice to be removed are actions that we consider incompatible with those of an official that represents the European Capital of Culture. It has been noted that merely hours after this PEN letter was published, Jason Micallef proceeded to continue with his outbursts on social media and ordered banners organised by Maltese civil society calling for justice to be removed. We strongly condemn these undignified and unacceptable actions and call on the European Commission to demand Mr Micallef be immediately removed from the post of Chairman of Valletta 2018 Capital of Culture”.Partit Nazzjonalista Head of Delegation in the European Parliament MEP David Casa, who led the initiative together with 5 other MEPs, stated: “It is unacceptable for the Chairman of the European Capital of Culture to behave in this manner. Jason Micallef has humiliated himself and he has tainted Valletta 2018 by his behaviour. He should resign immediately”.The letter was also signed by PN MEPs Roberta Metsola and Francis Zammit Dimech. 

Watch: Helena Dalli dashes to car to avoid questions on Daphne Project allegations

European Affairs Minister Helena Dalli headed straight to her state-vehicle as she refused to comment on the recent allegations that have emerged from the Daphne Project, with a communication aide telling the press that they should have asked their questions during a press conference earlier that day.The Malta Independent did not receive any press call indicating that the minister would be attending an event that day.Dalli was approached by the newsroom as she exited a restaurant right next door to a protest being held outside the Valletta Police Station, where civil society groups filed a report concerning the allegations.Dalli’s portfolio includes relations with the European Union. Several European newspapers form part of a consortium of media houses which have convened to work on stories that had been followed up by Caruana Galizia before her assassination.An EP delegation set up to investigate the rule of law in Malta said today that it will return to continue its work following this week’s revelations.In her haste to escape from journalists, parliamentary secretary Aaron Farrugia was almost left behind. Dalli's driver had already started driving away with Farrugia still out of the car. It was then realised that someone was missing, and the car stopped for Farrugia to board.Video: James Caruana

Civil society groups file report at Valletta police station over Daphne Project allegations

Civil society groups have filed a report at the Valletta police station to investigate the reports that emerged from the Daphne Project, particularly those closest to government, including Minister Chris Cardona.This came after the group, which included CSN, Kenniesa, Occupy Justice, and Awturi, called for the immediate interrogation of Cardona, following allegations that he had met with one of the accused in the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia after the murder and prior to his arrest.The group had initially called the protest in front of the Police Station in Valletta after MP Simon Busuttil had been summoned to explain why his car was used by activists to hang up posters regarding the investigation into the murder.The police later informed Busuttil that he did not need to come for questioning.Speak in front of the Police Station in Valletta, the group expressed dismay that the Labour Party's media had used Busuttil’s personal details (his number plate) to send out a clear message against the right to protest.“The Police still decided to call in Simon Busuttil despite the fact that Christina Chetcuti (Busuttil's partner) had made it clear that she was the one who had used the car,” the group said.“Rather than waste their time and resources, the police should look into the issues brought to light in the press.  The Police should bring Chris Cardona for an interrogation immediately.”The group, who chanted 'Malta is not a normal country’ and 'justice’, placed placards asking the Police to call Cardona, with his mobile number attached, along with mock number plates.Videos & Photos: James Caruana

First time Keith Schembri acknowledges connection between him and 17 Black
 ALIGN=

Yesterday was the first time that OPM Chief of Staff Keith Schembri acknowledged some form of connection between himself at 17 Black, a company first mentioned by slain journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.It was revealed on Wednesday that 17 Black was listed as the ‘main client’ and ‘possible Payer/Sender’ of Tillgate and Hearnville, the offshore Panamian companies owned by OPM Chief of Staff Keith Schembri and Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi. The information came from leaked emails obtained by German paper Süddeutsche Zeitung, and published by Times of Malta as part of the Daphne Project.In a statement issued by the Department of Information, Keith Schembri said: “17 Black and MacBridge were included in draft business plans for my business group as potential clients. My companies make dozens of business plans such as these. However, it is a fact that neither 17 Black nor MacBridge ever became clients of my business group, and no transactions were ever recorded with these companies, or with me personally. I have no knowledge of the transfers referred to, nor any knowledge of the alleged payment.”This marks the first time Schembri admitted to some form of link to 17 Black, stating that they were included in draft business plans for his business group as potential clientsBack in May 2017, The Malta Independent had revealed how investigations by the Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit (FIAU) revealed the transfer of money from a company connected to Armada Floating Gas Services Malta, owners of the LNG tanker berthed in Marsaxlokk, to a Dubai-based company – 17 Black - allegedly created for the purpose of transferring kickbacks to then Minister for Energy Konrad Mizzi and Prime Minister Chief of Staff Keith Schembri.Sources at the time had told this newsroom that another 120-page report with damning evidence on Mizzi and Schembri was also under lock and key within the unit awaiting conclusion. That report has since been presented to an inquiring magistrate by PN MEP David Casa.The Malta Independent had seen extracts of the report that shows how investigations by the unit revealed that there were two attempts to transfer money to 17 Black from Orion Engineering group (a company registered at the same address and having the same involved parties as Armada Floating Gas Services Malta Ltd).Following the article, then Opposition Leader Simon Busuttil had slammed Prime Minister Joseph Muscat on the issue during a televised debate. Keith Schembri then issued a statement: “Simon Busuttil has gone utterly over the edge. Any contention that I have sought - or received - ‘kickbacks’, commissions, or any other kind of payment while in government is false.  I have always maintained this, for it is the truth.  I have been subject to a co-ordinated smear campaign for well over a year, but this latest fabrication is nothing short of criminal. Simon Busuttil’s latest publicity stunt shows how desperate he is for power and will not think twice to put at risk the country’s economic future - and our most basic principles of fairness and justice,” he said at the time.While denying the kickback allegations, Schembri never denied the existence or his knowledge of 17 Black.Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi also reacted to Wednesday’s story, insisting that “the allegations and speculations “made by the Times of Malta are a repetition of unfounded allegations and speculation made prior to the June 2017 elections, and Dr Konrad Mizzi unequivocally states:  - that there is no connection, direct or otherwise, between Dr Mizzi, his company or trust, and any entity called 17 Black; that the Panamanian company Hearnville Inc. held no bank account and received no money from any source.”“Minister Konrad Mizzi recently answered questions by journalists from The Daphne Project, in a frank and open manner, and has clearly stated that he: - does not know an Azeri national identified by them as having made a payment in favour of 17 Black; has no knowledge of a payment allegedly made by “Orion Engineering Group” to 17 Black.”“An independent audit into Dr Mizzi’s trust and company structure was completed by an international audit firm which issued its opinion that the financial statements of the structure were presented fairly, in all material respects and in accordance with accounting policies. The auditors have confirmed that the evidence that they have obtained was sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for their audit opinion. The audited financial statements speak for themselves. All the facts are contained therein. They confirm that the structure is solely intended as a family trust, that there have been no trading activities undertaken by both Rotorua Trust and its fully owned subsidiary Hearnville Inc. and that no bank accounts were held by the trust and company,” the statement said.

‘Malta: EP will respond forcefully’ - Greens MEP Sven Giegold; rule of law delegation to return

The European Parliament’s Mission to Malta met with urgency this morning, Greens MEP Sven Giegold said, following the recent revelations on the investigations into the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia and fresh allegations on Minister Konrad Mizzi and OPM chief of staff Keith Schembri.In a statement titled ‘Malta: European Parliament will respond forcefully,’ Giegold said that the MEPs who form part of the mission decided to write to the new head of Europol, for a meeting in order to promote their involvement in the investigations.In addition, they have also asked for a meeting “with our own Conference of Presidents with a view to a debate the situation with the EU Commission and adopt a plenary resolution; to ask for an urgency meeting (next week) with Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans to discuss the new revelations and the findings of our mission; to write to the Maltese Parliament and to ask for a meeting with official authorities in Malta.” "The situation in Malta is unbearable. The new revelations must lead to drastic changes to counter the general perception of corruption and a weakening of the rule of law. Minister Mizzi and Keith Schembri have to step down or be dismissed. The programme for the sale of passports must be suspended immediately. The European Parliament should use allits means to ensure that, this time, concrete action is taken. The European Commission has to overcome its light touch policy on the rule of law problems in Malta and urgently act as the guardian of European values."Nationalist MEP David Casa said that in view of the prevailing situation, the EP mission to Malta will be returning in the coming days.A consortium of 18 news organisations is pursuing stories that had been followed by slain journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, and will be publishing the work. The news organisations include the New York Times, The Guardian, and Süddeutsche Zeitung, the newspaper behind the Panama Papers revelations. The project (dubbed the Daphne Project) was organised by an investigative non-profit organisation called Forbidden Stories.In addition, last night it was revealed that 17 Black was listed as the ‘Main Client’ and ‘Possible Payer/Sender’ of Tillgate and Hearnville, the offshore Panamian companies owned by OPM Chief of Staff Keith Schembri and Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi, leaked emails obtained by German paper Süddeutsche Zeitung, and published by Times of Malta as part of the Daphne Project show.The news reports allege that investigators from the FIAU had found that 17 Black received a payment totalling $1.4 million (€1.1 million) from a Seychelles company called Mayor Trans (which reports say is owned by an Azerbaijani national). Mizzi and Schembri deny the claims.  

Bail request by men charged with Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murder refused
 ALIGN=

A request for bail filed by the three men who stand charged with murdering Daphne Caruana Galizia was turned down today by Magistrate Claire Stafrace Zammit. The magistrate, after hearing the submissions made on Tuesday by the defence lawyers and the prosecution, decided that there were various reasons to refuse bail.She cited the serious nature of the charges, the protection of public  order, the risk that the accused could commit new offences and the risk that they could abscond, especially in view of the fact that they are facing a maximum punishment of life imprisonment.The court said that the fact that the accused, if found guilty, could be jailed for life meant that the granting of bail was not an “automatic right.”Alfred Degorgio, aka il-fulu, his brother George Degorgio, known as ic-Ciniz, and Vince Muscat, known as il-kohhu, were charged with the murder in early December 2017, after they were arrested at a shed in Marsa. They have been kept in custody since and are always brought to court under heavy armed police presence. They have pleaded not guilty to killing the journalist with a car bomb on 16 October. Magistrate Claire Stafrace Zammit has already ruled that there is enough evidence for the three to stand trial.On Tuesday, lawyer Martin Fenech, who is representing Muscat, insisted that the case had been “blown out f proportion.”
