The connection between the mafia in Malta and London date back to the late 1940’s. The drugs route from Malta, through Italy and France to England is also known. Rumours spin that Daniel Morgan may have been mixed up with a woman in Malta, foolhardy at best.
Reading David Bray’s “Daniel Morgan, Southern Investigation” page 111 and Newby, the office manager mentions a “heavy phone call” from Malta, leaving Morgan sweating. West Yorkshire Police, the most corrupt in northern England, were mixed up with Morgan’s trip to Malta and Gozo.
Page 17 of Jukes “Untold Murder” mentions Morgan as a “marked man”.
