Police suspect a bogus address was postmarked on the package of cocaine that was recently mailed to Nationalist MP Jason Azzopardi, Lovin Malta is reliably informed.
Azzopardi found the mysterious package waiting for him when he collected his mail from the PN’s Pieta’ headquarters late last month. His name was typed out in bold letters, with the postmark stating it was mailed to him from an address in Jungfernstieg, one of the most popular boulevards in Hamburg.
The address is stated as Uhrenzubehör oHG – Heinz Kohlmann – seit 1985 , which is translated into ‘Clock Accessories plc – Heinz Kohlmann – dated 1985’.
However, the postcode is stated as 20354, which is the exact same postcode that pops up when you search ‘Jungfernstieg’ in Google Maps. It doesn’t link to a clock shop, but to a tourist information centre and ferry service.
Azzopardi said last month that he opened the envelope at home and found a sachet containing white dust “which had a particular smell that I had never smelled before in my life”. Asked to clarify by Lovin Malta, he said it smelled “as though something sweet was burning”.
He reiterated his conviction that he was the victim of an attempted political frame-up by people who wanted to intimidate him in his work.
