Updated: 900 anti-corruption banners removed; “could distract drivers”

Nine months on since Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination, 900 anti-corruption banners were affixed around Malta to condemn injustice and corruption. In a Facebook message, Il-Kenniesa said that these 900 posters are just the first part of their fight against corruption.

One of the messages targets directly Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. They wrote that Muscat’s resignation is long overdue for not respecting fundamental freedoms, for not sacking his Chief of Staff Keith Schembri, and for ‘protecting criminals’ instead of innocent citizens.

Il-Kenniesa urged the general public to attend a vigil which will be held Monday evening outside the Court.
