Justice Minister Owen Bonnici is understood to be responsible for the constant removal of any tributes to fallen journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia at the Great Siege monument in Valletta. This was revealed in court during a Constitutional hearing.

During the Constitutional Case filed by blogger Manuel Delia against the Government alleging a breach of the right to free speech due to constantly removing any tributes to the journalist, it was said that it was Minister Bonnici who gave the order early in September.
