Keith Schembri, the disgraced former chief of staff, mysteriously ‘lost’ his mobile phone just 5 minutes before police showed up at his Mellieha home.
Chief Inspector Arnaud arrived at Schembri’s home at 5.05am on 26th November. Geolocation data shows that Schembri last used his phone at 5am within his Mellieħa home.
Just a few hours earlier at roughly 11.30pm on 25th November, an army of officers, including Arnaud, descended upon the home of Adrian Vella, the doctor-turned-messenger of Schembri and main suspect Yorgen Fenech. The heavy police presence was in stark contrast to Schembri’s arrest.
Schembri remains under investigation for his potential involvement in the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, and a number of other offences.
