I can confirm with authority that Carmen Ciantar’s story that she received bribes is fake and is being spread to the Pakistani press by Joseph Muscat and his criminal associates.
The reason why I didn’t reject the story at first is because I know Carmen Ciantar a bit from the world of backroom politics. She is sleazy, yes, but I don’t think she is corrupt, and the story about her taking bribes from the VGH Group is fake.
One of the papers spreading the story has government-paid Russian propagandists as its columnists and journalists.
There will be more fake stories coming out against Chris Fearne in the coming days.
I want to make it clear that in order to do my work right, I haven’t been in contact with Chris Fearne during the past few days.
