Several thousand Maltese citizens rallied on Sunday to demand justice for an investigative journalist killed by a car bomb last Monday.
The Prime Minister and opposition leader, who were chief targets of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s reporting did not attend the rally in Malta’s capital, Valleta.
The demonstrations in Valletta were organised by the group Civil Society Network after the car bombing killed anti-corruption blogger Caruana Galizia, 53, in a murder that shocked the Mediterranean island.
Caruana Galizia spent much of the last few years reporting on Maltese links to the Panama Papers leaks.
Some of those present at the protest carried placards or wore T-shirts with the last words written by Caruana Galizia, minutes before she was killed: ‘There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate.’
