Keith Schembri was photographing never like. If the Maltese Newspapers show photos of him, it's mostly the same. His role behind the Scenes of the Power, as chief of staff of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, seemed to him to be becoming more and more important as the large stage. About the actual balance of power in the Auberge de Castille, the Baroque government Palace in Valletta, said the but, apparently, nothing. The newspaper "Times of Malta", quoted the other day a Minister with the words: "It was always Schembri, who made the decisions."
This week, the events were precipitated now. Not only in Keith Schembris life but in the lives of Maltese politics as a whole. She was always dramatic, the events of the past days had an even more drastic quality. Arrests and interrogations in the vicinity of those who are supposed to have organized in October of 2017, the murder of the investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia and running, the mob also dragged Schembri in depth. One of the leniency the entrepreneur and alleged man behind Yorgen Fenech, has called Schembri as the Principal of the bombing. The Chief Of Staff! You have to imagine the change.
Who says the truth, is not clear. However, the murder case had reached the final top of the Maltese government, the innermost circle of power. Schembri resigned, and so also the days Muscats are counted.
Muscat gave to his foster-father Schembri
The 44-year-old Schembri was a successful businessman before moving into politics. His Kasco Holding a bought the paper and sold it with a good margin to the printers. Soon, he was also with machines for printing companies, has invested in beverage brands, Restaurants and luxury furniture. In 2008, Muscat took his friend to the Labour Party.
Schembri should prove to be a formidable political strategist: He revolutionized the old-fashioned style of communication of Labour. In 2013, the party won the parliamentary elections. Muscat was Prime Minister. The appeal Schembris to the "Chief of Staff", a newly created position in the organization chart, he called then a "natural choice". The operational management of the company Schembri gave. But he kept 99.9 percent of the shares. Even more than the Kasco, a other company, he had, as soon as he was in Power, opened in Panama interested but soon the till gate. They seemed to be in the Panama Papers. Apparently, they should serve as a custodian for bribes. Schembri denied the always. But Daphne Caruana Galizia stayed tuned. She called him corrupt, and drew Connections to a mysterious company in Dubai, the 17 Black. And, as we know today, belongs to Yorgen Fenech, who graduated high doped transactions in the energy sector. With the government.
There's a lot of Cloudy together flowed so long. Muscat always kept to his chief of staff, had made him great. And Schembri made a new masterpiece that the Maltese voted in the elections in 2017, again Labour. In spite of the shadows. Now the shadows become so long that they darken the whole stage.
