John Dalli accuses Ellul-Grech of sending him part of a bank statement. Yet again Dalli did not bring any proof to confirm this. He did not produce any evidence that the bank statement was false.
After a six-hour search headed by Assistant Commissioner Michael Cassar at Ellul-Grech’s home the police did not find any evidence to connect Ellul-Grech to these anonymous letters. The only evidence found at Ellul-Grech’s home was the copy that John Dalli gave to him when Dalli asked the defendant to attened at Dalli's Ministery. Dalli confirmed this in his witness.
Dalli accused Ellul-Grech of sending him a copy of the statement without producing it as evidence. He also did not say why or how he decided it was Ellul-Grech. The only evidence was the statement the Dalli had given to Ellul-Grech a few days before.
