Keith Schembri’s and Konrad Mizzi’s companies put into liquidation this morning

Keith Schembri’s and Konrad Mizzi’s Panama companies, Tillgate Inc and Hearnville Inc, were today put into ’emergency’ liquidation, closing them down.

The move comes after this website announced last Saturday that it has reliable information on the transfer of very large sums of money from a company owned by an Azerbaijan politically exposed person (PEP) to bank accounts held by these companies and by the third company, Egrant Inc, and that the story will be reported in full on the coming days.

Keith Schembri and Konrad Mizzi, who are the Prime Minister’s chief of staff and his Minister Within the office of the Prime Minister, have both issued strenuous denials, even before publication of the story, and have sought to bolster their credibility through the simple act of filing a civil suit for libel.

More about this, with names and further details, between tomorrow and Friday.

Tillgate Inc and Hearnville Inc were marked as ‘active’ until yesterday. Egrant Inc was dissolved around two weeks ago.

Keith Schembri, the Prime Minister’s chief of staff, put his Panama company into liquidation today. So did Konrad Mizzi, the Minister Within the Office of the Prime Minister.
