Yorgen Fenech, the owner 17 Black, was intercepted early this morning leaving Portomaso on his yacht, by the Armed Forces of Malta. Fenech was arrested at around 5.30 a.m.
A video taken from Portomaso, showed soldiers of the Armed forces, patrolling the area and Fenech’s yacht ‘Gio’.
Fenech is the owner of 17 Black, the Dubai-based company that was allegedly set up to transfer millions to the Panamanian companies owned by former energy minister Konrad Mizzi and the Prime Minister’s chief of staff Keith Schembri.
Although any link has yet to be established, the event took place a day after the Prime Minister declared that he is committed to ensuring a Presidential pardon if the alleged middleman behind the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia discloses information, relevant to the case, which can be corroborated in court.
