Controversy Over Omission Of Electrogas Statement In Public Inquiry Report
The public inquiry report published through the Department of Information by the government and Prime Minister Robert Abela had a missing page, Matthew Caruana Galizia and his lawyer Jason Azzopardi have revealed.
Three pages were left out of the public inquiry report that was published last week because of a ‘technical error’, the inquiry board insisted.
The omission of one page, in particular, page 261, which contained details about the probable motive for Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination - her investigative work on Electrogas, led to speculation that the government had purposely withheld information.
“Ms Caruana Galizia received a large number of leaked emails from Electrogas which made her sure that there was an insurmountable level of corruption taking place” the missing page reads.
The page formally establishes that the probable motive for Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination was her investigative work on Electrogas. The judges who wrote the report are careful to note that it is not within their remit to establish the motive, as that is the competence of the police, but the implication is clear.
Caruana Galizia family lawyer Jason Azzopardi wrote on Facebook “Can you believe of all the pages that could have gone missing, it was this one ?”
Matthew proceeded to publish his own take on the matter, agreeing with the board on the nature of the error, that being that it was a technical error, not a redaction.
“It seems that these missing pages ended up hidden behind the title pages that followed" the board said, then further guaranteeing that the error would be resolved and that new copies would be sent to those concerned.
