1) Dal 2017 i governi italiani si sono resi complici di questi crimini. Nessuno può dire "non sapevo". Vi abbiamo fornito prove e ve le hanno fornite Onu e Corte penale internazionale. Il "Memorandum" con la #Libia condanna loro e condanna voi. Erano loro da fermare, non le Ong.
2) Vi abbiamo raccontato il #Libyagate che coinvolge politica, finanza, contrabbandieri, mafiosi. Tra stragi e affari attraverso #Malta e i personaggi coinvolti nella congiura contro #DaphneCaruanaGalizia

Very interesting, the corruption that #DaphneCaruanaGalizia was covering before her murder lead to China & included Chinese oligarchs buying Maltese citizenship to become EU citizens through bribery.
#ButNothingsHappening
The shell company used for the kickbacks, Macbridge, was set up by the mother-in-law of a Chinese executive with Accenture one of the largest & allegedly Swampy global consulting firms. It was a spin off from accounting firm Arthur Anderson implicated in the Enron case. Image
Accenture (formerly Anderson Consulting) has a long history & been in a variety of questionable issues. Facing pressure in the early 2000s for being a US federal contractor incorporated in Bermuda, a well known tax haven. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accenture

Hello new followers! Can I introduce you to some of @RSF_inter’s other priority cases? They all deserve much more attention and support! Thread.
#DaphneCaruanaGalizia was a courageous Maltese journalist assassinated by a car bomb near her home in October 2017. More than three years on, there’s still been no justice for Daphne or the extensive corruption she had uncovered. Some background here: rsf.org/en/news/malta-…
We are working to support her family’s campaign for #JusticeforDaphne. Follow @daphnefdtn, her sons @mcaruanagalizia, @acaruanagalizia & @pcaruanagalizia, her sisters @Corinne_Vella & @MandyMallia, and her niece @meg_mallia. @TheShiftNews is also an excellent resource.

This headline never ages. Joseph Muscat’s pet rat Keith Schembri is at it again, this time in the public inquiry into Daphne’s assassination.

>> That crook Schembri was in court today, pleading that he is not a crook<<

"Your problem is that the funds which you had to receive had to come from a shady source."

Following his propaganda script, Keith Schembri’s trying to dictate to the board how they should run the public inquiry. He’s quoting Daphne now, after years of discrediting her.

Suspect denies the charges but the investigation continues.

“When it comes to justice for Daphne, so far there is none”: @PieterOmtzigt’s strong words as he concludes his mandate as PACE Special Rapporteur on ensuring justice for #DaphneCaruanaGalizia’s assassination and strengthening the rule of law in Malta. Watch the whole thing.
@PieterOmtzigt: “From the Assembly’s point of view, implementation is unsatisfactory. The rule of law situation in Malta remains deficient, especially when it comes to fighting corruption”.
“The alleged mastermind...may be released from pre-trial detention before he can even be indicted”. An extremely important point being overlooked by international media who reported widely on Yorgen Fenech’s arrest last year. There’s a very real risk he could avoid prosecution.

At court in Valletta, where today’s sitting in the public inquiry into the assassination of #DaphneCaruanaGalizia has been cancelled, but it looks like the scheduled hearing in the compilation of evidence against accused mastermind Yorgen Fenech will go ahead.
Yorgen Fenech has just entered the courtroom. Former police commissioner Lawrence Cutajar is waiting outside - he’s expected to testify as a witness today.
At the same time, across town there’s a police press conference being held on last night’s incident with Melvin Theuma - middleman and key witness in the case who remains hospitalised after being found in his home with a slit throat. Live blog here: lovinmalta.com/news/police-co…

1. In his latest @Verfassungsblog post, @ProfKochenov engages in a spirited defence of his own reputation. That is his prerogative. His airbrushing of the Maltese Citizenship by Investment scam and the role of @HenleyPartners is not.

A thread:

verfassungsblog.de/passport-trade…
2. I'll begin with where I agree with Prof Kochenov: questioning his nationality of birth is absurd and retrograde. Kochenov's origins are neither a negative, nor a choice. We also agree that EU MSs enjoy a great deal of freedom to confer citizenship. There ends our agreement.
3. We disagree about the extent to which EU law constrains the conferral of nationality. Incidentally, so does at least one author who Kochenov cites in support of his argument that there is consensus. @joshaw rightly who notes possible competence via AML legislation.

Is this connected to Operation Cassandra?
It is certainly a #ButNothingsHappening case, $115M illegally laundered to Iran from Venezuela from 2011-2013, but not investigated until the Trump Admin.
Lied to FBI agents about the scheme which started in 2006 in January 2020!
This is a superseding indictment, which likely means an earlier indictment happened under seal. Now this one as an edited version to hide other connections & cases connected to this defendant. ht @ProudBigDaddy2
One of the reasons this may be Project Cassandra related is that they are having the SDNY's Terrorism & International Narcotics Unit leading this investigation.
