In the immediate aftermath of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination, her son Matthew displayed extraordinary clarity when he explained that his mother “was assassinated because she stood between the rule of law and those who sought to violate it”. They seek to violate it still.
The alleged mastermind in Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination, one Yorgen Fenech, has now been formally charged in court with conspiracy to murder. This is to be welcomed, but the extent of the conspiracy remains unclear. Evidence has emerged which suggests that the Prime Minister’s powerful chief of staff, Keith Schembri, may have been a co-conspirator.
