Matthew Caruana Galizia has challenged the police to seize Joseph Muscat’s, suggesting the Prime Minister’s private email server could have been used to plan his mother’s assassination.
Caruana Galizia, himself a journalist, took to Facebook to address growing speculation by government officials and Labour sympathisers that he had hid Daphne Caruana Galizia’s laptop from the police.
“I would burn my mother’s laptop in front of the police, if I knew where it was,” he wrote. “It’s the prime minister’s laptop that the police need, not my mother’s. Joseph Muscat, where is your laptop? Where is the laptop and the private [email protected] email server that you could have used to plan the assassination of my mother?”
Banners implying that Daphne Caruana Galizia is hiding her laptop were put up overnight across Malta, moments after the Prime Minister’s communications aide Glenn Bedingfield called for such banners to be erected.
Last year, Daphne Caruana Galizia revealed that Joseph Muscat, his chief of staff Keith Schembri, justice minister Owen Bonnici and CEO of Malta’s sale-of-citizenship scheme Jonathan Cardona correspond with each other through @josephmuscat.com addresses hosted on a private server in the United States. This means that any emails sent through these accounts will not be hosted on the Maltese government’s servers.
Caruana Galizia revealed how Henley & Partners chairman Christian Karin had communicated with Muscat, Schembri, Bonnici and Cardona on their private @josephmuscat.com emails about his plans to sue her in the United Kingdom.
