Corruption in Electrogas deals is undeniable and indefensible

09 May 2021

Today, the Times of Malta revealed yet another facet of the kickback scheme behind Electrogas. Paul Apap Bologna incorporated a company called “Kittiwake” in Ajman only two months after Yorgen Fenech incorporated 17 Black in the same secretive emirate. Apap Bologna is one of the shareholders of Electrogas and received a large “success fee” when the government awarded a tender to the consortium. He replaced Yorgen Fenech as a director of the company after Fenech was arrested and charged with the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Daphne Caruana Galizia’s family had written to Siemens AG asking the company to sue for the Electrogas contracts to be rescinded, on the basis that they were procured by flagrant and undeniable corruption. Daphne paid with her life to reveal the corruption behind the deals. Today we reiterate our call to Siemens and also call on the Government of Malta and the Opposition to commit to scrapping the Electrogas deals. Our leaders must stand for the public interest instead of the private interest of the criminals who profit off us all.
