SUNDAY • 24 OCTOBER 2021 • ISSUE 1147 • PUBLISHED SUNDAY AND WEDNESDAY maltatoday FREE INSIDE TRUTH IS OF NO COLOUR WWW.MALTATODAY.COM.MT Your copy of Oh My Malta Magazine with MaltaToday Fenech lawyers file report for police investigation into Melvin Theuma 'lies' CORRUPTION FIGHT NEEDS A RETHINK PG 12 Brussels irked by attempt to short-circuit EU court action €1.95 MATTHEW VELLA THE lawyers of Tumas magnate Yorgen Fenech are requesting that the police investigate the testimony Melvin Theuma (pic- tured) has given in court against the man accused of mastermind- ing the assassination of journal- ist Daphne Caruana Galizia. Fenech's lawyers say Theuma, the middleman in the assassina- tion, has lied about the role of Joseph Muscat's former right- hand man, Keith Schembri, in the murder. "Theuma has given false testi- mony by repeatedly confirming untruths... everything he has de- clared about Yorgen Fenech of his involvement in the Caruana Galizia homicide is a lie from beginning to end," the lawyers said. Lawyers Gianluca Caruana Curran and Charles Mercieca filed a criminal complaint in which they accused Theuma of committing perjury in court with testimony that is contra- dicted by the secret recordings of him in conversation with Johann Cremona, a business associate of Yor- gen Fenech.

Brussels suspects the Gozo ministry's decision to issue a new framework law for bird trapping, days after repealing a previous law under the EC's infringement proceedings, is intended at forcing its hand to restart the long road to court action. Sources told MaltaToday the legal officers were stunned that just a week after repeal- ing the framework law that derogated from the EU ban on bird trapping for reasons of "scientific research", a new framework law was published a week later.
