Former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has been included in a long list of people and companies suspected by the Attorney General of money laundering in connection with the Vitals-Steward magisterial inquiry.

Other key figures in the list include former OPM chief of staff Keith Schembri, former minister Konrad Mizzi, former Nexia BT partners Brian Tonna and Karl Cini, Technoline managing director Ivan Vassallo, Ram Tumuluri and several original Vitals investors, Steward CEO Ralph de la Torre, Steward International CEO Armin Ernst, and former Allied Newspapers managing director Adrian Hillman.

Judge Edwina Grima ordered several banks and companies to give police access to their funds, assets and other relevant information.

The suspects have also been given 24 hours to declare the source of their wealth to the Attorney General in writing and have been banned from selling their assets.

Muscat and Prime Minister Robert Abela have come out strongly against magistrate Gabriella Vella, warning that the timing of the inquiry’s conclusion, a few weeks before the MEP and local council elections, indicates it was politically motivated.
