The evidence linking Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri to criminal activity is now overwhelming following the latest revelations in Daphne Project, former Partit Nazzjonalista Leader Simon Busuttil and Partit Nazzjonalista Head of Delegation in the European Parliament David Casa said.

Speaking outside the Law Courts, Busuttil and Casa that Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri have now been caught red-handed planning how to net $150,000 a month and the evidence is there for all to see.

Busuttil and Casa this afternoon gave evidence under to Magistrate Francesco Depasquale in relation to the joint court application they filed on 20th April 2018 requesting a magisterial inquiry on the basis of the revelations made by The Daphne Project and the FIAU report in David Casa’s possession.

Simon Busuttil stated that Konrad Mizzi is clearly lying when he says that he does not know who own the company 17 Black when he was planning to get payments of $150,000 from it each month. Not only, but it was also clear that Mizzi and Schembri were in it together. 

David Casa explained that the revelations made by The Daphne Project and the FIAU report in his possession point towards an organised money laundering operation. Despite these damning allegations backed up by multiple sources, Mizzi and Schembri are being defended and sheltered by Joseph Muscat.

“It is abundantly clear that Muscat is willing to put our nation’s reputation on the line in order to save Mizzi and Schembri’s skin and this makes him complicit.”

The next step is for Magistrate Francesco Depasquale to determine whether there are sufficient grounds to launch a criminal investigation.
