Egrant Findings

When the corruption protests started the Egrant story had not yet erupted.

Unlike Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri 's involvement in Panama papers, no one has admitted he/she owns Egrant. The inquiry proved that no proof of ownership has been found yet and that allegations to date have not been proven. So it raises more questions...like who falsified the signatures and why? Prime Minister Joseph Muscat still has alot to answer for, particularly on involvement of Keith Schembri and Konrad Mizzi  in the Panama Papers scandal, and for his chief of staff owning a bank account in Pilatus Bank.

Muscat probably called the enquiry on Egrant as he knew legal proof would never come out - he consequently rode the political wave. This was clear from day one. On the other hand Hearnville and Tillgate had full proof but Labour 's strong majority  and the power of Schembri and Mizzi in the triumvarate made them untouchable. Hence in latter case Politics prevailed over rule of Law... And this is extremely sad and worrying.

Muscat is now in good stead to turn his attention to the 2 sister companies Hearnville and Tillgate whose owners are known. He should hold Schembri and Mizzi to the same standard he held himself.

I will keep being active for justice and truth with my colleagues.
