Daphne’s murder: AG accuses suspects of toying with law

The Attorney General has accused the lawyers of the three suspects accused of killing journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia of playing around with the law after new proceedings were opened for the accused to be released from arrest.

Last week, the Constitutional Court, presided by Judge Giovanni Grixti, did not accept a similar request by George Degiorgio, Alfred Degiorgio and Vince Muscat to be freed from their arrest, since the Court believed that they would not abide by the conditions imposed on them.

The Defence explained how no evidence to back this claim was presented to Court and said that since their arrest, the process had worked at a fast pace and the Court had heard the testimonies of around 100 people.

However, it was argued that in the past, the accused have obeyed the Court conditions presented to them by Court.

The Attorney General said that the inquiry is still ongoing and that there is the possibility of more arrests. He also said that if this request were acceded to, the decision could result to several protests.
