Arthur and Darren Debono are indicated as the Masterminds of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murder

The mainstream media has construed a narrative around Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murder aimed at portraying Yorgen Fenech as the sole mastermind behind this murder. However, what emerged in yesterday’s court sitting (17th March 2021) contradicts this narrative. In other words, Yorgen Fenech is not the mastermind of this murder nor is he a “ko-mandant” or associate as the masterminds are others and they have a name.

This revelation was made by the Degiorgios’ lawyer William Cuschieri. Until Cushieri made his statement in court, the main narrative was based on what Melvin Theuma had declared in court. According to William Cuschieri, Melvin Theuma has a recording which contains the names of those who commissioned the murder. The masterminds are a certain Arthur and Darren Debono. What is shocking here, is that, according to Cuschieri, this information is to be found in Melvin Theuma’s recordings. This key detail has never emerged in court – at least from what we heard in open court.

Lawyer William Cuschieri refers also to the money paid for this brutal assassination. This time, the amount paid is 300,000 euros and, according to Cuschieri, all this amount was paid by the Debono brothers to one person. Is this Darren Debono the one who was involved in oil smuggling with Libya and about whom Daphne Caruana Galizia wrote in her blogs?

What can be stated is that the comment made by Superintendent Keith Arnaud to the court, after Cuschieri mentioned Darren Debono’s name, shows that the police know about this recording. Arnaud told the court that the Darren Debono mentioned by Dr. Cuschieri is not the Darren Debono known as it-Topo!  

If Cuschieri is right, it is outrageous and unacceptable that the police failed to investigate such an crucial point. Thus according to William Cuschieri, the masterminds of this murder are Arthur and Darren Debono and not Yorgen Fenech.

But how much money did the killers receive for this murder? Is it right to conclude from what William Cuschieri stated in court that the Arthur and Darren Debono were paying each one of them 300,000 euros? However, we also have another version that Yorgen Fenech paid 140,000. Which of these two versions is the correct one? What can be stated until now is that Vince Muscat, known as il-Koħħu has denied to have received 300,000 euros.

We also have to bear in mind that that there is no proof of any connection between Darren Debono and Yorgen Fenech. Nor is there any proof of connection between Yorgen Fenech and this Arthur mentioned by Dr. Cuschieri.

If this is not a frame-up, I wish that someone would explain to me what a frame-up is. On the premise of Melvin Theuma’s lies, a person has so far been kept in prison for over a year and the magistrate is denying him bail. If Daphne’s tragic death has served any purpose, it is to highlight how wisdom has been thrown to the four winds and none is circulating in the highest institutions of our land.
