One of the three men charged with assassinating journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia has filed a constitutional case demanding the postponement of a jury hearing against him for his involvement in the notorious 2010 HSBC bank heist.

According to Vince Muscat (Il-Koħħu), his right to a fair trial by jury is being compromised by the media reports into Caruana Galizia’s assassination.

Muscat was charged in 2010 with firing over 30 shots at police officer during the failed heist of the HSBC headquarters in Qormi, but has yet to face justice eight years down the line. 

Wearing wigs and fake moustaches, Muscat and two accomplices had entered the bank and robbed a pistol from a security guard, but the alarm was raised before they could steal any money. The three men tried to escape but ran into police officers and a shoot-out ensued. A former policeman and now-lawyer David Gatt was charged with masterminding the heist but was cleared.
