Gianluca Caruana Curran, one of the two lawyers on Yorgen Fenech’s defense team has allegedly attempted to bribe Times Of Malta journalist Ivan Martin with a couple of €500 notes.
Journalist Ivan Martin says he rejected the money which was physically handed to him by lawyer Gianluca Caruana Curran towards the end of a meeting in Valletta.
“I cannot be sure how many notes he handed as I didn't unfold them. I handed them back to him and told him I couldn't accept payment. I also informed them that I only get paid from Times of Malta, and that he should not do that again going forward.”
Both parties can confirm to have met, seemingly to open a line of communication which would facilitate more accurate and impartial reporting about the Daphne Caruana Galizia Case.
“He told me time costs money. But I did not accept the money and the meeting ended there,”
