Tony Gauci, the Maltese man who determined the outcome of the Lockerbie trial, has died, Times of Malta is informed.

Tony Gauci (6 April 1944 – 29 October 2016) was one of the many proprietors of Mary’s House, a clothes shop in Tower Road, Sliema, Malta. Gauci was the most important witness in the Lockerbie trial.

One thought on “One Year Ago — Lockerbie : Key Witness Is Dead”

  1. “Rewards for Justice.” That’s a lot of money.

    “I personally hope that Tony is in a better place and that he is now at peace because he must have led a tortured life knowing that he had jailed an innocent man for money.”

    Well, he is in a better place, for sure. But I don’t think he led a tortured life knowing that he had played a role in a trial for $2 million. That’s a lot of salve for a guilty conscience.

    Money corrupts. And a lot of it corrupts even more.
