Muscat has overseen Malta’s transformation into a haven and a heaven for criminals and money launderers. His tenure has been characterised by an unprecedented, incessant stream of corruption scandals.
Machiavelli would have had a blast working at the Prime Minister’s office at Castille, the command centre of a network of unprecedented and unparalleled corruption and crime.
Now is the time to find out why Muscat, Schembri, Mizzi and Farrugia were keen to keep their visit to Azerbaijan that day secret, why they did not want any witnesses around them, and whether any of them are benefiting from the deal.

Yorgen Fenech has been in the media often in the last few months, since Reuters had revealed that he had set up a secret company called 17 Black that he was going to use to pay Keith Schembri, the prime minister’s chief of staff, and Konrad Mizzi – at the time the Minister responsible for Energy – each the princely sum of some 5,000 euros a day.
