Murder suspect Yorgen Fenech has said he is fearing for his life as he was escorted through the streets of Valletta following a court sitting.
Fenech, the main suspect in the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, refused to answer most questions by the local and international press in detail, merely repeating that he is confident that the truth will come out. Although he said he is fearing for his life, he said he refused a request by the police to escort him to his lawyer’s office because he has no faith or trust in them.
Meanwhile, a couple of protestors followed Fenech, shouting ‘Murderer’ and ‘You killed Daphne’ at him.
Fenech had just come out of court, where he has filed a prohibitory injunction to remove chief homicide inspector Keith Arnaud from the Daphne Caruana Galizia case on the grounds of his alleged closeness to Keith Schembri, who Fenech is now implicating.
Fenech’s lawyers claimed today that the businessman is in possession of recordings and a contract implicating the Prime Minister’s former chief of staff.
