MATTHEW VELLA & LUKE VELLA THE former Commissioner of Revenue, Marvin Gaerty, flew to Las Vegas in 2018 together with two of the men who stand charged with the abduction and assault of a man in Rabat. Gaerty, who stepped down from his powerful role at the end of January, flew in Octo- ber 2018 with Christian Borg and Tyson Grech, to watch the historic clash between MMA fighters Khabib Nurmagome- dov and Conor McGregor in Las Vegas. But the holiday came just under two months after Borg, 28, was summoned by the Tax Compliance Unit for an audit of his company Princess Hold- ings. At that time, Borg and Grech, were running their car rental business and dealership, but had not yet submitted a single set of their annual accounts for Princess Holdings and No De- posit Cars. As the accounts filed in Janu- ary 2022 show, Princess Hold- ings amassed €22 million in ac- cumulated losses, despite Borg and Grech, 26, flaunting their wealth on social media with snaps of their holidays and su- percars. Now they stand accused of having abducted a man whom they threatened to have his fin- gers cut.

But both TV stations today owe millions in unpaid elec- tricity bills to ARMS, the water and energy billing company, once again showing politi- cal parties to be less adept at keeping their own house in order.
