#maltaunderthreat as activist blogger is brutally assassinated: joint NGO statement

MGRM, aditus Foundation, Integra Foundation, the Critical Institute and the Platform of Human Rights Organisation in Malta extend their condolences to the family of Daphne Caruana Galizia and express their concern at the threat to freedom of speech that her violent murder poses.

We urge the government to ensure that law enforcement are adequately resourced to conduct the necessary investigations and to do all in their power to bring those responsible to justice.

Given that it has been reported that in the past days Daphne Caruana Galizia reported threats on her life, we also request an independent inquiry into whether the police took the requisite measures to protect the victim and whether this outcome could have been averted.
