Former OPM Chief of Staff Keith Schembri has received police permission to travel abroad, the Times of Malta reports.
Quoting sources, the newspaper said that Schembri was granted permission to travel for three days with his family.
Schembri was for a time arrested by the police in connection with their investigations into the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia. In court on Thursday, police inspector Keith Arnaud said that Schembri is still under investigation. On 26 November, he had resigned from the post of OPM chief of staff, a few hours before his first arrest. Schembri still appears to be a person of interest to the police, however he is not under arrest.
In a most recent court case, it was revealed that Keith Schembri did not give the police the password to his iCloud and emails. Inspector Keith Arnaud had said that police had asked for data to locate the last known position of Schembri’s mobile phone, which is still missing. Schembri had also previously told police that he lost his phone.
