The Times of Malta and Malta Today carry the story about the daughters of former EU Commissioner John Dalli appearing in court charged with involvement in a Ponzi scheme targeting evangelical Christians.  Louise Dalli and Claire Gauci Borda, along with 4 foreigners – Eloise Marie Corbin Klein, Charles Ray Jackson, Elizabeth Jean Jackson and Robert Mitchell McIvor – are facing charges of money laundering, misappropriation of funds, fraud, making a false declaration to a public authority and the falsification and use of documents.  Gauci Borda is also charged with breaching the Money Laundering And Financing Of Terrorism Act and with failing to carry out her professional duties as an accountant and auditor.  According to Malta Today, The scheme, first reported by assassinated journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in 2015, was allegedly run by Eloise Marie Corbin Klein, operating under a number of aliases.  The journalist had reported her as having conned elderly Christians out of some $600,000 by posing as a missionary and convincing them to invest their savings into a bank account that ostensibly was to be used for an African mining project.  But instead, the money was funnelled into 2 Maltese companies – Tyre Ltd and Corporate Group – owned by Louise Dalli and Claire Gauci Borda
