Keith Schembri’s protective puppets

We’re not in safe hands, chaps. These are two faces of the rule of law, side by side at an eve of Sette Giugno ceremony: the Commissioner of Police and the chairman of the Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit, who is also the Attorney-General.

The one chairs the state anti-money-laundering body which prepared reports into the activities of Schembri and his associates (and Konrad Mizzi and Brian Tonna, too), and the other one buried them when his job was to trigger an investigation.

What would the police have done if the FIAU reports were about you or your business? They would have pounced. You’d have been hauled over the coals and into court.
