The Malta Independent reports that during an interview in The Times with a former Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit official, Jonathan Ferris, and it also reports that Pilatus Bank whistleblower Maria Efimova fears for her life, should she return to Malta.  In the interview, Ferris, who had been sacked from the FIAU after the last election, tells the newspaper that the government is trying to stop him from publishing more details linking it to Azerbaijan’s ruling family.

On 26th November, Malta Today reported that the former investigator said he left shortly after an incident in which a minister demanded information on a police investigation.  He had already said he would produce documents alleging millions of euros were processed by the private bank Pilatus Bank for powerful Azerbaijanis.
