Justice for Daphne Event

Investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was assassinated by a car bomb near her home in Malta on 16 October 2017. Impunity continues more than two years on, as the three accused hitmen have yet to be brought to trial, and no one else involved in the attack has been identified – including the masterminds.

On December, 4 two investigations into Caruana Galizia’s assassination were presented:

  • The London launch of Manuel Delia, Carlo Bonini and John Sweeny’s book Murder on the Malta Express.
  • A presentation of a comprehensive joint report titled Justice delayed: the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia and Malta’s deteriorating press freedom climate by Reporters Without Borders and independent Maltese outlet The Shift News.


  • Paul Caruana Galizia: journalist and son of Daphne Caruana Galizia
  • Manuel Delia: Maltese blogger and co-author of “Murder on the Malta Express: Who killed Daphne Caruana Galizia?”
  • John Sweeny: ex BBC Panorama and Newsnight reporter, co-author of “Murder on the Malta Express: Who killed Daphne Caruana Galizia?”
  • Rebecca Vincent: UK Bureau Director, Reporters Without Borders

Chaired by Maria Ordzhonikidze who designed and managed a number of public awareness, advocacy, human rights and crisis management campaigns. Sociologist and security specialist, she authors research and articles, speaks and teaches on subjects including sociological and political trends, freedom of speech, international relations and security.
