Employment Documents Found And Passed On To Police, Says Head Of Civil Service
Head of the Civil Service Mario Cutajar has admitted that Melvin Theuma was in fact employed in the public sector and has passed on all information to the police.
Cutajar spoke to Lovin Malta after the publishing of the employment history of Theuma, one of the killers of Daphne Caruana Galizia.
Theuma said in court today that he had been given a government job when he agreed to arrange the murder but he never showed up to it.
Cutajar this afternoon responded by saying he had checked the records of the public service and found no trace of Theuma’s employment.
Xarabank later published his employment history, confirming he was employed within the Family Minister, then headed by now Police Minister Michael Farrugia.
Contacted for his explanation, Cutajar said he had checked the public service records but not the public sector records because he was still awaiting responses from all public entities. He said he issued the statement after Theuma’s testimony on the advice of the Attorney General.
Cutajar said he was going to update the country with his findings tomorrow. Asked if this was a widespread problem where people were given no-work jobs with government, Cutajar said; “No, God forbid.”
He added he would not get into the case and would now leave things to the police.
