The international non-governmental organisation ‘Reporters Without Borders’ (RSF) has called for the “posthumous defamation” lawsuits against Daphne Caruana Galizia to be dropped.

Representatives of RSF met with Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, together with Minister Owen Bonnici, Minister Carmelo Abela and the Attorney General Peter Grech. The organisation had requested this meeting to discuss the assassination of the journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, together with the present situation of the media in Malta.

RSF stated that it remains committed to the pursuit of justice for Daphne Caruana Galizia until all those involved in every aspect of her assassination are brought to justice, including, crucially, the masterminds.

‘Let Daphne’s memorial stand’

The representatives also called for Government to allow the Valletta protest memorial in her honour to stand. They emphasised the need for protection of journalists and called for an end to attacks on independent media.

RSF will take part in tonight’s Valletta demonstration in honour of the murdered journalist. RSF is also involved in vigils taking place today in London, Brussels, Berlin, and Vienna.
