The former Malta international foot- baller was this week arrested and ar- raigned in a massive anti-money laun- dering operation by Maltese police which earned the plaudits of the Amer- ican government in a formal statement. Debono had long been on a hit-list of suspected smugglers which the Amer- ican government's embassy officials in Malta wanted arrested, actively encour- aging the Maltese government to take action. But in 2019, Debono filed an affidavit in the Maltese law courts in which he claimed that a naval attaché at the em- bassy of the United States requested information about a possibly secret re- fuelling of a Russian warship, after the Maltese government claimed it had re- fused permission for its docking in Mal- ta. In the affidavit, Debono said the at- taché requested to know what he knew about "when the Russians asked the Maltese government for fuel for war- ships on their way to Syria, and whether the Maltese government had mounted a mise-en-scene when it refused to do so; and whether it was the case that the Maltese government had supplied the fuel requested outside Maltese territori- al waters."
