The failed attempt, by Joseph and Michelle Muscat, to insert themselves in upcoming perjury proceedings against the former police officer and regulatory agency official, Jonathan Ferris, reminds us that whenever JM is threatened by the truth, he will not hesitate to destroy honest public servants whose testimony could sink the corrupt criminal enterprise that was his premiership at Malta.
Ferris, a police officer in the economic crimes unit, and one of the best analytic brains in the Malta Police, due in part to the fact that he was known to possess a photographic memory, saw all the Egrant transactions, and traced the Azeri funds to a jewelry company called "Buttardi," owned in part by Michelle Muscat, and which picked up a New York apartment with the money.
The price of his knowledge: JM allegedly ruined his life and career. He allegedly engineered his transfer, under pressure, to the FIAU in a fixed contract, where he was filed whilst on probation. He was basically set up to fail at the regulator. Ferris presently works as a security officer at a hotel chain, a far cry from his important work at the Malta Police.
We fully expect that Muscat will push back on this information; lately he is acting like a cornered rat, and rodents in such extremis tend to try to bite back. We stand by this story.
It is hoped that those individuals at the European Commission who read this blog each day are paying close attention.
