Keith Schembri testified for more than six hours in court yesterday, in a tense sitting during the public inquiry into the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.
"I did nothing behind his back," Schembri said when asked about his relationship with disgraced prime minister Joseph Muscat.
Schembri said he had told the then-prime minister about his connection to Yorgen Fenech’s offshore company 17 Black 💼
Notably Schembri also contradicted Muscat in yesterday’s sitting, claiming that that he knew of the 2017 election date in March of that year, well before Caruana Galizia had reported on offshore company Egrant.
Muscat has maintained consistently that the election was in only called because of reporting on his wife’s alleged ownership of offshore company Egrant.
Yorgen Fenech also told police he knew of the election date in 2016 👮🏻♂️
Schembri ultimately conceded that Caruana Galizia was right to say the election date had nothing to do with her reporting on Egrant.
