Maltese Official Arrested Over Killing Of ‘Panama Papers’ Journalist Who Linked Trump To Russian Money Launderers

Maltese official Keith Schembri, who served as the prime minister ex-chief of staff, was arrested and questioned regarding the killing of investigative reporter Daphne Caruana Galizia, whose work on the  “Panama Papers” exposed a massive web of corruption,  including a revelation that Ivanka Trump helped her father’s Panama hotel venture with the help of an alleged international fraudster with ties to Russian money launderers.

Malta police are questioning Schembri after allegations were made by businessman Yorgen Fenech, who was arrested last week trying to flee the country, that Schembri was a co-conspirator in the death of Galizia, The Guardian reports.

According to the publication, Schembri was put in the middle of a political scandal four years ago when Caruana Galizia leaked the report known as the “Panama Papers.”

In her extensive report, she stated that Schembri and Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi became the beneficiaries of secretive offshore companies soon after entering office.

Schembri and Mizzi both resigned Tuesday, according to The Guardian.

Schembri’s arrest comes amid increasing pressure for Prime Minister Joseph Muscat to resign.

“Joseph Muscat’s moral authority has been compromised to the point of no return,” newspaper Malta Today’s executive editor wrote in a scorching editorial. “The stage is set for Muscat’s exit.”
