Sources who spoke to this news- paper said charges have been issued against several staff members work- ing at the elderly home. MaltaToday is informed that security personnel and nurses are among those being charged over the case. Charges include involuntary homi- cide and neglect. The case is expect- ed to be heard in front of Magistrate Marse-Ann Farrugia early next year. An independent inquiry into the elderly man's disappearance from a government residence home found significant shortcomings on the part of staff working the night shift as well as the security team assigned with the main gate on the night of the disap- pearance. MATTHEW AGIUS TWO Maltese companies have been served with a €40 million garnishee order, filed on behalf of a Russian company. The issue concerns a complex international power struggle over the control of the Fortenova Group that has now spilled over into the Maltese jurisdiction. Fortenova is one of Croatia's largest producers and retailers of food products. The claim is connected with an ongoing conflict be- tween a number of depository receipt (DR) holders in Fortenova and the group's current controlling share- holder, Malta-registered Open Pass Limited. On 29 December, 2022, a Dutch court had formally rejected an appeal filed by Russian bank, Sberbank, and Saif Alketbi, an investor from the UAE, against a decision to prevent them from participating in the Fortenova assembly, due to international sanctions imposed on Sberbank in April 2022.
