In Malta, supporters and loved ones of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia gathered on Tuesday to commemorate one year since her murder by an unknown assailant. Galizia was a well-known investigative journalist who reported on corruption at the highest levels of the Maltese government, including tax evasion, nepotism and money laundering. She faced personal and legal threats, harassment and arrests because of her work. The investigation into Galizia’s murder has been criticized for its lack of independence and efficiency. Her son Matthew Galizia said, “It appears that there is a complete cover-up and a complete lack of will to investigate the motive for the assassination and the people who ordered it.” The last words Galizia wrote were “There are crooks everywhere, the situation is desperate.”
