Daphne’s murder: “She was killed because of her investigative work” – Omtzigt

Pieter Omtzigt, who was engaged by the Council of Europe to report on the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia said he is moving on three assumptions including that those that commissioned the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia done so because of her investigative work.

Omtzigt also said the other two assumptions are that the assassination was planned and premeditated in advance. He also said that the three arrested were likely to follow any instructions.

In a memorandum which was made public yesterday, Omtzigt said the assassination raises many questions about how Maltese law is observed, the progress in the investigations and the attitude and behaviour of a number of senior public officials.

Yesterday it was also announced that Dutch MP was authorised by the Committee on Legal Affairs of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly to receive information from anonymous sources and to protect the identity of those who provided this information.
