Video footage produced by French media shows two men destroying the memorial to murdered Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.
The memorial, which is made up of candles, photos, messages and flowers, was placed at the Great Siege Monument in front of the Court almost two years ago.
The footage appears in the French investigative programme called ‘Enquête Exclusive,’ which was broadcast yesterday on French television. In the scene, which appears at around 39 minutes and 49 seconds, the two men are shown destroying the memorial and shouting that such actions at the monument should be illegal.
The sisters of Caruana Galizia were at the scene telling the men that the memorial was to remember the assassination of Caruana Galizia. They replied that ‘This is not a f***ing graveyard’ and that there shouldn’t be ‘politics’ at the monument. One of the men is pictured throwing one of the candles at one of the sisters as they are trying to stop them from destroying the memorial.
One of the sisters tells the crew that the monument is regularly cleared by the cleansing department on a daily basis, as well as by other citizens.
In addition to the footage of the memorial, the French programme also revealed the process of obtaining Maltese citizenship and how the agent they dealt with had boasted having a personal connection to the Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and Parliamentary Secretary for Citizenship Julia Farrugia Portelli.
