The family of slain journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia said that Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has nothing to fear but the truth, in a statement following the resolution, “Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination and the rule of law in Malta and beyond: ensuring that the whole truth emerges’ which was adopted by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe on Wednesday afternoon.

In a statement on Thursday, the family of Caruana Galizia asked for the support of the international community to actively monitor Malta’s implementation of the resolution’s recommendation on an independent and impartial judicial public inquiry into the circumstances of Daphne’s assassination.
The family of the slain investigative journalist remarked that from the adoption of the resolution with an overwhelming majority on Wednesday, it is closer to the truth, stating that “Daphne would still be alive today if corruption in Malta were properly investigated and prosecuted by the authorities, if Malta’s institutions functioned as they should, and if Malta were a properly functioning democracy.”
“We have done everything we could as a family for this basic truth to emerge,” the family said.
