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.
