  1. This was the journalist that helped get the Panama Papers published. The dude looks like a stereotypical villain to boot.

  2. Isn’t this the person who revealed the Panama Papers?

  3. Fun fact, this man is soooo well connected in the government of Malta that members of the president’s cabinet were [actually arrested](https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/nov/27/daphne-caruana-galizia-police-quiz-malta-pms-ex-chief-of-staff)in connection to the dirty deed. Fenech went to the president and [asked for a pardon](https://theshiftnews.com/2019/11/29/yorgen-fenech-presidential-pardon-denied-after-six-hour-cabinet-meeting/) but the president ended up turning him down despite [pardoning Melvin Theuma](https://www.reuters.com/article/us-malta-daphne/malta-grants-pardon-to-suspected-middleman-in-journalist-murder-police-sources-idUSKBN1XZ1TV) who is also connected to the murder!
