There is another common name that comes up in this saga – Vince Muscat il-Koħħu.
It happened that Gatt was also charged with aiding criminal fugitives, specifically for seeking medical help for criminal Darren Debono ‘it-Topo’, after the HSBC shoot-out. I remind you that together with Debono, even Vince Muscat il-Koħħu was accused of such a hold-up. What a coincidence!
Malta is so small. Same names coming up. Same criminal underworld. Same village lawyer. Same David Gatt. Same Vince Muscat il-Koħħu.
The Degiorgios also mentioned the Attard Jewellery robbery. In this jewellery robbery, Darren Debono ‘it-Topo’ was involved, together with Fabio Psaila. Both were shot and injured but it-Topo was arrested immediately after the hold-up while Psaila was wanted for almost a month as he had turned into a fugitive.
Who was the lawyer for Vince Muscat il-Koħħu? David Gatt. Who was the lawyer for Fabio Psaila? David Gatt. Surely, a lawyer has a right to represent any client that seeks his help but don’t you scratch your head when you think of the fact that the village lawyer David Gatt, who was accused of being involved and aiding criminals, happened to be the lawyer of the same criminals who were involved in the Attard Jewellery Robbery and the HSBC Heist? Don’t you scratch your head when you think of the fact that David Gatt was accused of masterminding such hold-ups?
And yet he was acquitted from our court. But then, why is it that his name, together with these crimes, are mentioned in the recent press release of the Degiorgio brothers?
Malta is so small. Same village lawyer. Same David Gatt. Same criminals involved in two robberies. Same crimes and same lawyer mentioned in the Degiorgios’ press release.
And yet he was acquitted. And the mind continues to boggle.
