Update 6.20pm

After more than three hours broadcasting the text as graphics: Malta: Ex-Presidente Federazione: Combine la Norvegia prove schiaccianti su sconfitta 4-0 in qualificazioni EURO 2008, SkySport have amended their story after some maltese individuals seems to have contacted the newsroom through SkySport24 twitter seeking more information.

SkySports24 originally had named Dr.Joe Mifsud as ex MFA President to have revealed details about  the Norway v Malta game in what immediately seemed to be a freak and shocking story since Dr.Mifsud always stayed out from this story since it first emerged. The graphic mentioning the ex MFA President was shown approximetly 60 times for an average of 20 times per hour from 3pm till 6pm.

The SkySport24 newsroom must have mistunderstood the news following Kevin Sammut’s ban by UEFA reported on some local portals.

To make up for the mistake SkySport24 is now broadcasting two graphics with text as follows:

Graphic 1.

Malta Presidente Federazione Demajo: Combine con la Norvegia prove schiaccianti su sconfitta 4-0 in qualificazioni EURO 2008.

Graphic 2.

Malta Kevin Sammut squalificato per 10 anni dalla UEFA accusato di aver truccato la sfida con la Norvegia.

——————–

A graphic that has been appearing for the past hour on SkySport24 the italian 24 hour sports pay tv channel has been stating the following:

Malta: Ex-Presidente Federazione: Combine la Norvegia prove schiaccianti su sconfitta 4-0 in qualificazioni EURO 2008.

The story has not yet been featured as yet.

This story comes out just when Norman Darmanin Demajo said that for him the Norway v Malta fixed game issue is now a case closed.

More details soon on this site soon.
