Partit Demokratiku Secretary General Martin Cauchi Inglott encouraged all Members of Parliament to vote in favour of proposals to establish a Truth and Justice Commission to carry three separate inquiries about the murders of Karin Grech, Raymond Caruana, and Daphne Caruana Galizia. He said the PD is proposing that members of the victims’ families be on the board.
Cauchi Inglott’s appeal in the form of a Facebook video, happened after PD MPs tabled a number of amendments to the Act regarding Inquiries to have an additional Truth and Justice Commission led by the European Commission’s Commissioner for Human Rights.
They are suggesting that the Commission worked with a number of retired Maltese judges to establish three public inquiries to examine the circumstances surrounding the murders of Karin Grech in 1977, Raymond Caruana in 1986, and Daphne Caruana Galizia in 2017.
The European election candidate explained that the PD supports police work, and that the inquiries are not being proposed to take over from the criminal investigations currently underway.
Among the proposals, the PD is calling for the family members on the established board within the Commission to be able to actively follow the inquiry proceedings, being given a final copy of all the reports prepared by the Commission in order to be able to comment on it before it is published.
