SUNDAY • 27 JUNE 2021 • ISSUE 1130 • PUBLISHED SUNDAY AND WEDNESDAY maltatoday PAGE 4 FREE WITH MALTATODAY HIGHEST EARNERS TAKE MORE ELENA BICKLE FATF GREYLISTING COMMENT MT2 MATTHEW VELLA THE partner of Melvin Theuma, the middleman in the Carua- na Galizia assassination turned State's evidence, is expected to be charged with money launder- ing offences that relate directly to Theuma's criminal activity. MaltaToday understand the charges concern Theuma's own criminal career, which include the organisation of an illegal lottery that earned him hundreds of thousands, if not millions over the course of his criminal career. In a magisterial inquest compiled by Gabriella Vella, Theuma's partner Charmaine Zammit, 42 of Zurrieq, her daughter Shianne Zammit, 26, and her partner Ryan Farrugia, 26, of Qormi, were referred for charges on money laun- dering. They are to appear be- fore Magistrate Natasha Galea Sciberass, according to police sources.

From unemployed people hav- ing bank deposits running into thousands, to hairdressers living the high life despite reporting a meagre income; from a politi- cian who settles a €30,000 out- standing tax bill on the eve of a leadership election to business- people using offshore compa- nies to buy printing equipment to avoid paying tax in Malta; the malaise is widespread. And if you ever doubted the size of the problem, the Nation- al Audit Office annual report for 2019 gives some perspective. It's tax evasion, stupid!
