A journalist and cameraman from Net News waited outside Whitehall Mansions in Ta’ Xbiex tonight, after being tipped off that the lights were on in the windows of Pilatus Bank in that building.

When the lights in the windows went off, they got ready to doorstep whoever emerged. It turned out to be a man and a woman, both carrying large bags that could not possibly have contained anything other than files and documents.

The journalist and cameraman chased them down the road, but they refused to speak or say who they are or what their connection is with the bank. Immediately the footage was broadcast, they were identified as Seyed Ali Sadr Hasheminejad, the chairman of Pilatus Bank and its ultimate beneficial owner, and Antoniella Gauci, formerly of KPMG, who is now employed with the bank as its risk manager.

Watch the video below: the files and documents disappearing for good in those bags are almost certainly those pertaining to the accounts held for Keith Schembri in his personal name, Tillgate Inc, Egrant Inc, Hearnville Inc, Leyla Aliyeva and other Azerbaijan PEPs.
