CAPTURED: The Moment AFM Intercepted Yorgen Fenech’s Yacht On Its Way Out Of Malta

Article Featured Image

A photo sent to Lovin Malta shows the exact moment AFM patrol boats intercepted Yorgen Fenech’s yacht as it made its way out of the country earlier this morning.

Sources described how they saw flashing blue lights out at sea just beyond Pembroke, identifying a number of boats encircling a large vessel.

A quick look at data on vessel finder corroborates the photo.

At 5:45am, AFM patrol boats intercepted Yorgen Fenech’s yacht leaving the Portomaso Marina, less than 24 hours after Prime Minister Joseph Muscat announced that he recommended a pardon for the middleman in the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

He has since been arrested and confirmed as the main suspect.

After lying stationary while officers boarded the yacht, AFM patrol vessels escorted Gio back towards Portomaso, and a rigorous search by AFM continued at the marina.

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.

He is also the director of Electrogas, the firm which operates Malta’s new gas-fired power station. The power station was a critical electoral pledge in Labour’s campaign to take government in 2013 and was under Konrad Mizzi’s remit back when he was Energy Minister.
