Letter written by Melvin Theuma implicates Schembri and Fenech in the murder of Caruana Galizia
The Times of Malta had published a letter which allegedly was found at the home of businessman Yorgen Fenech, who stands accused of masterminding Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murder.
The letter, which was allegedly written by Melvin Theuma, who is named as a middleman in the case, implicates both Yorgen Fenech and the former Chief of Staff to the Prime Minister, Keith Schembri. It describes how these planned and financed the murder of Caruana Galizia in October 2017.
In the letter, which was obtained by the Times of Malta, Theuma says that he fears for his life which is what promoted him to write the letter because, in his words, Yorgen Fenech and Keith Schembri were planning to eliminate him. He goes on to add that if this happens he wants everyone to know the truth about what happened.
In fact, in the undated letter, Theuma says that together with the letter he was also sending recordings and a photograph of himself with Keith Schembri taken at Castille.
Theuma says that Keith Schembri, who he refers to by his nickname Kasco, had got him a government job, which job was taken away after Keith Schembri had disposed of him.”
The newspaper report goes on to say that according to sources, when interrogated by the Police, Melvin Theuma admitted writing the letter. The report also refers to other reports that in December 2017 Melvin Thuema made a will, a few days after George Degiorgio, Afred Degiorgio and Vince Muscat were arrested and accused of the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia.
The report also says that Theuma told Police that he had mentioned Keith Schembri to ‘scare’ Yorgen Fenech. When pressed about Schembri, Theuma said he didn’t exactly know if Schembri was involved in the murder but had mentioned him because he assumed he knew about the case.
