Italian MEPs put pressure on the European Commission on Maltàs pipeline
LA VALLETTA (MALTA) (ITALPRESS/MNA) – Ten Italian MEPs from the European Peoplès Party have written to the European Commission asking to guarantee that Yorgen Fenech, accused as the mastermind behind the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia or anyone else involved in her killing would not benefit from any EU funding for the gas pipeline project that will connect Malta to Sicily.
The MEPs from Italy reminded that Caruana Galiziàs son Matthew has strongly opposed EU funding since it would financially reward Yorgen Fenech, a shareholder of the Electrogas consortium. Although the gas pipeline would not be operated by Electrogas, the consortium is set to receive a sizeable payout for the termination of its gas supply contract.
The European Commission was asked to specify what measures will be taken to ensure that EU funds do not benefit anyone involved directly or indirectly in the assassination of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.
