Climate for murderer
The assassination of the journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia has shocked the world - a committee of inquiry is now heavily burdens the Maltese state.
It is a late and sad insight. But at least, she is now black on white in a report of 437 pages. In Malta, a public inquiry committee concludes that the Maltese state is co-responsible for the death of the investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia - and that he failed.

It was about corruption in the government. "Daphne", as they all called, was a constant mandrel in the shoe of the mighty. She had hardly attacked Keith Schembri, the then Cabinet Chief of the Maltese Prime Minister: a "liars" she called him, whom everyone thinks fools. Schembri and Energy Minister Konrad Mizzi had opened offshore accounts in tax paradises, barely they had come to power. "Rogue where to look. It's desperate." So the last entry ended.
Her death draws the younger history of the country like no other incident - and he shocked the world. Until then, Malta had commonly the image of a cute, dreamy island in the Mediterranean.

In order to understand the reconnaissance role of Caruana Galizia in Malta, a quote of Muscats from 2013 is repetent again and again. "She's the only opposition in this country," he said, he had just won the elections - a young premier with a liberal and business-friendly course. The report states that Muscats government stood unauthorized to the "Big Business". And you have generally and "at the highest level" for a "climate of impunity".The Premier apologizes to the family - in the name of Malta's
in this climate seemed obviously the murderers protected. One of three men who are eliminated the execution of the murder has declared guilty and now sits a 15-year prison sentence. Two more are still waiting for the verdict. But who were the true wire drawers, the clients in the background?
