Malta Casino owner Yorgen Fenech arrested in connection with Murder

Tags: blogger, businessman, Daphne Caruana Galizia, journalist, Malta, murder, Yorgen Fenech.
Posted on 22 November 2019 by "T".

International news media reported on Wednesday the arrest of Yorgen Fenech, a prominent Maltese businessman, in connection with the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia in Malta about two years ago.

Fenech was detaind by armed officers after his yacht was intercepted and raided. Galizia, an anti-corruption blogger, was killed by a car bomb in 2017.

His arrest came the next day after the government said it would offer a pardon to a suspected middleman in the October 2017 murder, if he provided substantial proof of who masterminded the killing.

The Prime Minister of Malta Joseph Muscat has described Fenech as a "person of interest", stating that his arrest is part of an ongoing investigation. Muscat said he ordered police to be on the lookout for unusual actions by ‘persons of interest' in the murder, "If I had not given these instructions, maybe today we might be speaking of persons of interest who might have escaped."

Fenech is a director and co-owner of a business group that won a big energy concession from the Maltese state in 2013 to build a gas power station on the island, Electrogas. He is also the head of the Tumas Group, of which Tumas Gaming is a subsidiary, which owns the Oracle and Portomaso Casinos in Malta, in addition to the website portomasogaming.com. The Tumas Group, a business consortium registered on the island is estimated to be worth over €350 million and includes assets in property, gaming, hospitality, energy and shipping.

Reports released earlier say that Fenech recently resigned from the following companies including Portomaso Leasing Company, Tumas Group Company, Tumas Group Finance Company Limited, Tumas Gaming Group, TG Leading Company Limited, TG Properties Limited, Tomino Services Limited, Mill Street Complex Limited, Halland Developments Company Limited, St Andrews Hotel Limited, Norma Limited, Spinola Investments Limited, and Sun Island Services Limited, among others. He was alleged to have tried to escape the country via his private yacht, before being apprehended by the Maltese armed forces.

Fenech's resignations will make a little gap between him and the businesses mentioned above, although in many cases it is obvious he will remain a shareholder with family members taking up his vacant positions. To add more to Fenech's headaches, Malta's Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit has linked Fenech as the owner of 17 Black, a Dubai-registered company. Based from the Council of Europe's report, "17 Black had been expected to make large monthly payments to secret Panama companies owned by senior Maltese officials and had also received large sums of money from an Azerbaijani national."

Through her writings on the Panama Papers Leaks, Galizia was the first to reveal that the 17 Black company was linked to the Maltese politicians, which she wrote 8 months before she was killed by a car bomb. One leaked email named 17 Black as the source of income for companies owned by then energy minister Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri, who remains the prime minister's chief of staff. The email mentioned their firms expected payments of up to £1.56m within a year from the Mr Fenech's company, though it made no reference to the gas power station plans.

Schembri and Mizzi, who is now tourism minister, both told Reuters in October that they had nothing to do with 17 Black and Fenech, and have no knowledge of any plan to receive payments linked to the energy project or the businessman.

This story is expected to blow up into a national scandal, and it all started with Galizia, known to be a one-woman WikiLeaks, crusading against corruption in Malta and has paid for it dearly with her life.

I know for this case,this was big thing in world,how they killed her and what job this she had!especially this was strange for one country as malta,that somebody will kill reporter!but if this is truth,we can see connection and why should somebody from malta kill her!he have money,he have power,but we will see will this help to him now!

This man is guilty of this crime because he tried to leave Malta. An innocent man he was not doing this and not resign from so many companies. He was waiting to be arrested and defends himself, in this process in which he is accused of murder. He is a man who recognized his crime when he wanted to leave the country.

It’s wonderful that the criminal will eventually receive punishment for his crime .... The most important thing is that a terrible crime such as murder does not go unpunished so that people are responsible for their actions and their crimes .... but I’m always glad to hear the news when the criminals end up to prison .... after 2 years Yes, this person probably thought that he would be able to avoid punishment .... but no ... he will be punished

for me its also strange that this happen after two years and wonder what has change now,that they have evidence about this case and against him!and if this man is so powerful on malta and have so much money,its strange that he didnt pay some people who do this kind of things without any traces!
but its good that now everything is offer and he will pay for it!

Well with this subject I would not know what to say the truth because I do not get to see the news much and I do not know what I could say about this, but if there is a sure investigation it will be discovered that what happened and if this man had something to do With all this, in the long run everything always jumps Blink Blink Blink

I don't know what punishment this businessman will receive but he will try to escape with a short sentence. I understood that: when the law is permissive it's good for the criminals. I hope Malta to have very tough laws and the decision to be with many years of jail.

One would think if they would have just pay this blogger to make the stories go away instead paying a hitman to put a bomb in her car would have been an easier solution... But who am I to give tips out to the corrupt businessmen about how to do their dirty laundry.

You don't have to give anyone advice how to kill someone. It's not nice to take someone's life, unless that person encroaching to your life or to other people. I don't know what relationships this man had, but any man with money must to respect the lives of other people.

Yeah but once your life is in danger wouldn't you just simply take the money and run?
Now she has the moral victory but at the same time she is dead. I would have done it the other way.

People are very bad in many cases and when you are rich, the impression is that you are God. Well you're not and you don't have to kill anyone to get rid of one thing. This life is not long and deserves to be respected. Unfortunately some do not this thing.
 pajalnick27/11/2019 21:48:13 GMT
Of course, when people have big money, they have great opportunities and false beliefs that they are allowed to take any action with respect to other people and the rest of the world ... But of course this is not so .... and now again we are convinced that no money will help you if you are a criminal .... especially if you are a killer
