Three men were charged in Malta on Tuesday with murder in connection with a car bomb blast that killed anti-corruption journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, a statement read in court said.
Several hundred people in Malta have taken part in the funeral of a journalist killed by a car bomb attack that shocked the country last month. The crowd applauded when the coffin with Daphne Caruana Galizia arrived at the church in Mosta.
”Malta must show to Europe and the world that its rules and regulations are healthy and robust,” European Commission first vice-president Frans Timmermans said. “If problems of a more general or systemic nature are brought to light, they must also be addressed, regardless of the consequences.”
The killing of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia sent shockwaves across Europe a day after her car exploded near her home, prompting the European Commission to condemn it in the “strongest possible terms”.
