May 16, 2019 – Valletta, Malta – After 19 months of impunity in finding those who ordered the killing of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, supporters of democracy, press freedom and anti-corruption initiatives gathered at Valletta’s Great Siege Momorial for a vigil to celebrate her legacy and keep pressure on the Maltese government and international authorities. Demonstrators held up yellow signs reading â€œinvestigate themâ€ and asking for public inquiries…Galizia was assassinated in a car bombing in October 2017 while investigating the government, including the head of state, for corruption. At the time of her death, she had dozens of lawsuits against her designed to create a chilling effect on her work. The lawsuits persist posthumously.
