This Friday’s Xarabank special with MP and lawyer Jason Azzopardi is being postponed.
“In light of the fact that the Court of Magistrate’s decree on the application filed by the defence of Yorgen Fenech concerning comments I made during an interview on Newsbook has not yet been decided, and to ensure the Court is allowed full serenity to deliver its decree, I deem it best to postpone for a future date my participation in Xarabank,” Jason Azzopardi explained.
Azzopardi, who is the parte civil lawyer of the Caruana Galizia family, will not face host Peppi Azzopardi due to a pending court application filed by Yorgen Fenech’s defence for his comments during an interview.
Azzopardi has been in the political spotlight ever since he took on the brief for Daphne Caruana Galizia’s family in the court cases related to the journalist’s assassination.
He has made a series of shocking allegations, including that Caruana Galizia was killed for issues related to the Montenegro wind farm scandal and that former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat had called a snap election in 2017 because he was informed of the plot to assassinate the journalist.
Azzopardi has publicly clashed with Yorgen Fenech’s family after he alleged that the murder suspect’s wife had visited Justice Minister Edward Zammit Lewis’ home a few months after Fenech’s arrest.
He has also had issues with Adrian Delia, the former PN leader denouncing the MP as a “liar” who “fabricates falsehoods” with little regard for the people he harms.
Then last week, Azzopardi came under heavy fire following revelations that the Tumas Group, Fenech’s business empire, had paid for a 2017 five day stay at the Hilton Hotel in Tel-Aviv.
