The panel members and terms of reference for the Public Inquiry into the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia in Malta have been released today
The Caruana Galizia family has released the following statement:
"Civil society, the Council of Europe, and our family’s calls for an independent and impartial public inquiry have finally been heard. The Maltese Government must now give the Board of Inquiry its full support and co-operation so that the wider circumstances surrounding our wife and mother’s assassination are investigated without further delay, lessons can be learned and restorative justice for the country can follow. We hope that the evidence gathered by the inquiry will prevent other journalists losing their lives in Malta and beyond. We expect that the inquiry will have sufficient resources to complete its work in good time and that the government will promptly implementany recommendations."
