Updated - Adds copies of e-mails

Leaked e-mails cast new light on the interest of oil companies in the political contacts of oil trader George Farrugia, The Sunday Times reveals today.

In a 2005 e-mail, Camille Kay, responsible for Trafigura’s European fuel oil trade, asks: “How did your meeting with the minister go? Any good feedback?”

The reply from Mr Farrugia is unavailable but the message appears to form part of correspondence recovered from Mr Farrugia’s computer.

Mr Farrugia is one of the men at the centre of an investigation into alleged kickbacks taken in the procurement of fuel for the State energy company, Enemalta.

On Friday, the Government recommended that Mr Farrugia be granted a pardon, providing he gives evidence against other suspects – who include former corporation chairman Tancred Tabone and former director Frank Sammut.
