MALTA: FUEL TRADER DARREN DEBONO’S BID TO BLOCK UN SANCTIONS LISTING DENIED BY COURT

The Times of Malta reported on 12th August that a court has said that the fuel trader’s rights are not being prejudiced.  He sought to block the government from pursuing international sanctions against him for alleged involvement in fuel smuggling from Libya.  He had filed the application on behalf of his 3 companies – Water World Fisheries Ltd, Andrea Martina Ltd and Maria De Lourdes Ltd – against the Prime Minister and the Minister for Foreign Affairs.  The application to have him, and 2 associates – Gordon Debono and Libyan businessman Fahmi Bin Khalifa – added to the UN sanctions list was, at least temporarily, blocked by Russia.
