'Fleeing' tycoon is arrested at sea over journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia's murder

A business tycoon with ties to two Maltese cabinet members was arrested yesterday after armed forces intercepted and boarded his yacht in connection with the murder of the investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat announced that Yorgen Fenech, 37, one of Malta’s most prominent businessmen, was a “person of interest” in the investigation into the car bombing in October 2017 that killed Caruana Galizia, an anti-corruption crusader.

Fenech was arrested shortly after his yacht, Gio, had left the Portomaso marina, five miles north of Valletta, the capital. It was understood to be heading for Italy.

Muscat is facing calls to resign because of Fenech’s ties to two of his cabinet members.
