Tuesday 16 October marks one year since the brutal assassination of Malta’s best-known investigative journalist and anti-corruption campaigner, Daphne Caruana Galizia. She was killed when a car bomb detonated as she drove away from her home in Bidnija, Malta.

Although three individuals have been arrested in the murder investigation, those who ordered her killing have yet to be brought to justice. Our organisations support the Caruana Galizia family’s call for a public inquiry into her death.

To honour her bravery, and to call for justice in her case, a group of Maltese people living, studying, and working in London, together with a number of free expression and anti-corruption NGOs, are holding a candlelight vigil in the courtyard of St James’s Church opposite the Malta High Commission in London. Similar events will take place in Malta and in other European cities.

The vigil is being held in the courtyard of St. Jame’s Picadilly, across the street from the Malta High Commission.

Maltese journalist Caroline Muscat continues in the spirit of her murdered colleague Daphne Caruana Galizia

On 16 October 2017 Malta’s most important investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was murdered in Malta. Three men will stand trial for carrying out the crime but the masterminds remain untouched, rendering Malta an unsafe place for independent journalists. Journalist Caroline Muscat refuses to get distracted by that.
