TRUTH IS OF NO COLOUR WWW.MALTATODAY.COM.MT/COVID19 SUNDAY • 25 OCTOBER 2020 • ISSUE 1095 • PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY AND SUNDAY PAGE 2 maltatoday 'This is important' say gay Catholics MT2 OPINION CORONAVIRUS FOOTBALL WOES Football clubs have no clarity on sports project rules PG 7 THE aftermath of COVID-19 is described by a patient who says the health authorities have failed to make the public aware of the long-lasting effects of the virus. "We can't carry on the way the way we are, acting as if all is okay… the health author- ities must come forward, and warn people, or else the situa- tion will only continue to spiral out of control, and people will pay the price." FRANCIS ON CIVIL UNIONS DAPHNE MURDER INTERVIEW MT2 James Degaetano Police questioned Edwin Brincat over Security Service taps in which he advises Theuma on phone recordings Lungs could take months to heal from COVID – doctor IT'S AUTUMN! Clocks fall back one hour Prof. Isabel Stabile €1.95 Potentiality and personhood in Malta's abortion debate MT2 OPINION Gojja coached Theuma on Fenech recording SAVIOUR BALZAN POLICE investigators in the Caruana Galizia assassination were concerned that middle- man Melvin Theuma had been coached by a criminal associate in "framing up" Yorgen Fenech, the man accused of mastermind- ing the journalist's murder. MaltaToday has established that in a 22 November 2019 in- terrogation of Edgar Brincat 'il-Ġojja', also known as Edwin, intelligence phone taps were played to him that show he had coached Theuma on what to say while recording his conversa- tions with Fenech. Theuma's recordings with Fenech and other associates are part of the evidence he offered up to police, to broker a presidential pardon in return for information on the assassination plot. After his arrest in November 2019, investigators summoned Brincat, known to be a close friend of Theuma, asking him to explain his telephone conversa- tions with Theuma. In the phone taps played out during that interrogation – on the eve of Theuma's pardon be- ing recommended by then police commissioner Lawrence Cutajar – Brincat is heard advising Theu- ma on what to do. The phone- calls were made weeks or months before the November arrest. Paternal relation: Edwin Brincat 'il-Gojja' and Melvin Theuma have a long association "No medical expert would have recommended allowing mass events to take place: because we knew, from beforehand, that this was going to create chaos" PAGE 4
