A second ‘Daphne Project’ report published

Another report has been published in the series ‘The Daphne Project’ in a German journal that the company 17 Black in Dubai had obtained an income of €1 million. The report alleges that this sum had to be passed to Tillgate and Hearnville of Keith Schembri and Konrad Mizzi respectively in Panama as a result of accounts they had opened in The Bahamas. The report states that an email from their consultant in Nextia BT indicates this.

Both Schembri and Mizzi are maintaining that these companies never had Panama bank accounts. The first reference to Black 17 was made by Daphne Caruana Galizia in February last year. Reference was also made of transactions by the tanker gas company and reference is also made to a company, MacBridge.

Issuing a statement in reaction, Keith Schembri said that Black 17 and MacBridge are in the framework of multi plans made by his group holdings which has many plans but there have never been any transactions with them or with him personally. He said he knows of no transactions as being alleged by the reports.
