On 26 June 2019 the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) identified serious concerns over the investigation into the murder of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia and demanded that Malta establish an independent public inquiry into her death by September 2019
This coincides with a legal challenge issued by the Caruana Galizia family in Malta’s Constitutional Court to the government’s refusal to set up a public inquiry.
Daphne’s son Matthew Caruana Galizia said as follows: “A door to justice has been opened against concerted opposition from the Maltese Government. A public inquiry must now be established without further delay so that justice can be achieved”
The Caruana Galizia family is represented by Tony Murphy of Bhatt Murphy, Caoilfhionn Gallagher QC, Jonathan Price and Jennifer Robinson of Doughty Street Chambers and a team of lawyers in Malta led by Therese Comodini Cachia.
