The Constitutional Court in Malta has today found that the investigation into the assassination of the journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia is in breach of Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights due to the involvement of a senior police officer who had been a subject of her journalistic investigation.
The Attorney General of Malta has also confirmed today that he is giving active consideration to establishing a public inquiry into the assassination.
