On the Fourth Anniversary of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s Assassination, Her Family Call for Action

This weekend marks the fourth anniversary of the assassination of investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was murdered in a car bomb on 16 October 2017.

Today, the Daphne Caruana Galizia Foundation have released a statement, which is available here.

Tony Murphy of Bhatt Murphy, solicitor for the Caruana Galizia family, said as follows:

“The Maltese Government must unequivocally condemn the decades of dehumanising abuse suffered by Daphne Caruana Galizia and commit to implementing the recommendations of the public inquiry into her assassination. The family and civil society have yet to receive even a proposed Terms of Reference for the Committee of Experts recommended by the Public Inquiry to oversee the vital reform needed in Malta. The Government must act without further delay.”

The family is represented by an international team comprising solicitor Tony Murphy, Bhatt Murphy, and barristers Caoilfhionn Gallagher QC, Jonathan Price and Jennifer Robinson, Doughty Street Chambers; and a domestic team in Malta led by Therese Comodini Cachia.
