More witnesses took the stand in a short sitting on Friday presenting reports of their work in the compilation of evidence against the three men suspected of killing the investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. Vincent Muscat, Alfred Degiorgio and George Degiorgio stand accused of having killed investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.
Two Police officers from the Forensic Unit testified on the search they carried out at an apartment in St Paul’s Bay which is owned by George Degiorgio.
