possessed authority have been able to avoid abusing it”.

The purpose of this site is to give a small insight into the political corruption that has existed in Malta for many years. It should also be of interest to law scholars and those who are interested in the administration of justice and public office accountability.
This new evidence is being published now because it was not available until 3rd March 2011. The official court stamp on the transcripts of Expert Witnesses Ivan Formosa and Christopher Farrugia confirm this.
The evidence published on this site confirms beyond reasonable doubt that EU Commissioner John Dalli colluded with the police, judiciary and others to frame the defendant. John Dalli had the motive finances and manpower to commit this crime. Only a person with a warped and twisted mind like disgraced former EU Commissioner John Dalli would frame a person in this way.
The worse thing that can happen to an innocent person is to be falsely and maliciously accused of a crime by a powerful politician like EU Commissioner John Dalli. More serious still is when the victim knows that the accuser is the guilty party. It is not just the accusations that make it bad for the victim. What makes it even more despicable is that those who are close to the victim suffer just as much.
Malta is a small country with approximately 420, 000 citizens where everybody knows everyone else and such false and malicious public accusations humiliate and marginalize the victim and his family. It also makes it difficult for the victim to find employment. In such a situation the victim is seen as guilty even when found innocent by the court.
This is an account of abuse of power, vindictiveness, hypocrisy, intimidation, perjury, fraud, frame ups, waste of public resources and funds including corrupt practices in the police force and the law courts. It shows to what extent a powerful politician like John Dalli would be prepared to go to cover up his involvement in what had become to be known in Malta as “The Daewoo Scandal” or “The Scandal of the Millennium”. However, this was not the only scandal that John Dalli was linked to up to that point in time. Despite the fact that he was connected to some serious political scandals he was never investigated or held accountable for any of them.
On his appointment as EU Commissioner Heike Moldenhauer from Friends of the Earth labelled EU Commissioner John Dalli “A commissioner who can’t be trusted”. He must have done his homework very well.
Politicians like John Dalli are addressed as“Honourable”. There is nothing honourable about being an unaccountable and arrogant politician such as EU Commissioner John Dalli. Neither do honourable people go round making false and malicious accusations or abusing the power entrusted to them by the electorate as John Dalli did on many occasions.
EU Commissioner John Dalli has the hypocrisy and audacity to go on TV and other news media whinging and bleating about the suffering he endured when he was falsely accused. Of course EU Commissioner John Dalli did not go through the bad experience that Ellul-Grech was forced to go through because of the malicious and false accusations that Dalli brought against him. Commissioner John Dalli chooses to forget about this and the political corruption he has been connected to over the years.
Prior to Joe Gaffarena selling his interest in the Daewoo car sale agency to J.M. Scicluna on the 15th September 1997, John Dalli was engaged as consultant with the company from November 1996 – July 1998. He was also Shadow Finance Minister and consultant for other large businesses. The general public already knew that the business was experiencing difficulties due to lack of spares and new models.
It was during the period that EU Commissioner John Dalli was consultant for the company that the biggest known fraud in Maltese history was in progress. After this fraud was reported to the police commissioner and the prime minister, John Dalli proceeded to cover up his involvement by colluding with the police and others to frame Joseph Ellul Grech.
|Last page of PC 956 confirming his report was ready on the 31st October 2001|
Fingerprint expert PC956 Andrew Caruana and his department always claimed that there were thousands of letters to be examined to purposely prolong the proceedings. This breached the defendant's HUMAN AND CIVIL RIGHTS TO A FAIR TRIAL.
In his report Ivan Formosa accounts for a total of 1, 671 letters. Mr. Formosa submitted his report to the court on the 1st February 2001. On the 16th March 2000 an article published in the Nazzjon newspaper claimed that 20, 000 letters were in police possession. The next day another article was published confirming that the paper was reliably informed of this and accused the Labour Party of sending the anonymous letters. In his witness, Dalli had suggested that “a large political organisation” could have been involved.
The evidence in Ivan Formosa's report points to disgraced Former EU Commissioner John Dalli. Dalli COLLUDED with the police and others to frame Joseph Ellul Grech to cover up HIS involvement in THE Daewoo scandal. John Dalli had the motive and resources to put into action such a despicable and deceitful criminal act.
The prosecution's evidence confirmed the names and addresses on the envelopes were handwritten and there were a number of different handwritings. The postage stamps were manually applied to the envelopes, and the contents had to be folded and sealed. This confirms that it was impossible for the defendant to commit this crime.
