Mark Sant said Abela should recuse himself on discussion on a pardon for his client, after it was revealed that he was formerly a lawyer for the Agius brothers, who were re- ferred to by their family nick- name in court as the suppliers of the bomb that killed Daph- ne Caruana Galizia. "This was news to my client and his family," Sant told Mal- taToday. "I have no doubt that Robert Abela will do the right thing in this delicate matter." Muscat has requested a par- don in return for information on the Caruana Galizia assas- sination and other crimes. But Sant said Abela should not be cavalier about the deci- sion. "I hope he is aware that his is not the only conflict of interest among the current Cabinet members,", referring to his client's recent court ap- plication in which he alleged that "prominent individuals" yet to be publicly named are involved in Daphne Caruana Galizia's murder and other crimes. Muscat has accused the police of unnecessarily delaying a re- port on his request – pending since April 2018 – for a presi- dential pardon to walk free, in exchange for information about the journalist's murder and oth- er crimes he says he has inside knowledge about. Kohhu lawyer: best for Abela to recuse himself on pardon Vince Muscat, il-Kohhu, (right) is one of three men accused of murdering journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia
