Fenech, accused of master- minding the assassination of the journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, admitted to his wife in a lengthy 4am email of suffer- ing from a "tough" period that spanned years after the passing of his father George Fenech, and his administration of the Tumas Group. Fenech, whose close confi- dant was Joseph Muscat's chief of staff Keith Schembri up until his arrest in late 2019, admitted to his wife Marlene in the writ- ten communication that the 17 Black revelation had weighed heavily on his mind. Although not mentioning Daphne Caruana Galizia in his communication, Fenech told his wife Marlene in the summer of 2018 that Electrogas and 17 Black were two episodes that had darkened his life. He called Electrogas – the company which Tumas, Gasan, Siemens, Gasol and SOCAR Trading set up for the 200MW plant – "one massive mistake", claiming the project "killed" him and took away his "happi- ness and smile".
