More than three suspects could have ‘assisted’ in the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, Malta’s Security Service first thought.
According to their Annual Report for 2017, which was discussed in Parliament, MSS’ intelligence showed that a total of 10 suspects were arrested with possible connection and involvement with the journalist’s murder.
Of that number, the main suspects were identified; Alfred and George Digiorgio and Vince Muscat. Seven others were released without charge.
According to their court testimony, the MSS says that George Digiorgio was already under surveillance in connection with a previous case.
The agency also states that the investigations into the murder were conducted on the day of the murder and that a special unit was formed to collect and analyse intelligence gathered.
The report states that the investigation was still on-going and all leads were being followed up.
