PAGES 14-15 'Dead project' scam costs Enemalta €400,000 MATTHEW AGIUS AN Indian-owned video stream- ing business whose principals closed shop before paying their dues, has been ordered to pay Enemalta €400,000 in contractu- al dues. But the money is expected go down as a bad debt for the state utility company, as well as being a botched project for a data cen- tre that never materialised after the company disappeared from Malta. Originally the cloud operator was slated in 2017 to be part of a €75 million secure data cen- tre inside Enemalta's extensive underground infrastructure – a project which failed to material- ise. But The Shift later revealed that Nimish Pandya's Streamcast had been built around a network of shell companies, and that the company used its Maltese con- nections and ventures to hike up its value before being sold for €2 million in 2019. A related Irish company, Streamcast Technol- ogies Holdings, held a share- holding interest from Nexia BT partners Brian Tonna, Karl Cini and Manuel Castagna – auditors in the Panama scandal that im- plicated former energy minis- ter Konrad Mizzi and one-time chief of staff Keith Schembri.

Jason Azzopardi declared yesterday on a programme on 103FM that Prime Min- ister Robert Abela has been aware since March 2020 that a member of his Cabinet – "not a lawyer" – has been implicated in a crime by Mus- cat, in his pleas to police for a presidential pardon in return for information on a series of crimes. Azzopardi did not elaborate on who the alleged Cabinet member is or what crime he is referring to. Nationalist MP says Kohhu named minister in connection with crime
