Instigators of death of Maltese journalist ‘identified’

VALLETTA – “At least two” people have been identified in the search for the instigators of the death of Maltese Journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, the Times of Malta has reported.

 Galizia, killed in a car-bomb explosion on Oct. 16, 2017, consistently exposed corruption and misconduct within the Maltese government, while also drawing links between the online gambling industry and organised crime in Malta.

 Since her death, Maltese authorities have been working to identify the perpetrators who ordered the murder, having arrested and charged three men for the construction and placement of the bomb. According to the Times of Malta, senior officials have revealed that the investigation is at a “very advanced stage”, as police have managed to identify the main suspects. No further details about the individuals have been released thus far.
