Yorgen Fenech’s defence team have claimed that their client is part of a vicious frame-up by “a liar”, who “bought” a presidential pardon.
Defence team lawyer Charles Mercieca said in a court sitting on Wednesday that :
Murder middleman Melvin Theuma's pardon was negotiated and bought with the consent of former police commissioner Lawrence Cutajar;
Theuma paid €17,000 for the presidential pardon.
Theuma was coached on how to testify on the witness stand and told what to say ;
”The thing that hurts the most is that Fenech is still in prison. This is a case orchestrated by a liar to frame Yorgen Fenech.”
Mercieca said in a plea to the court.
