Malta still delaying action on Daphne

The AEJ has joined eight other media freedom organizations calling on the government of Malta to implement the recommendations of the public inquiry into the assassination of reporter Daphne Caruana Galizia  in 2017.

It’s been a year since the inquiry recommended ways to restore the rule of law in Malta and tackle financial crime and corruption.
Yet “with minor exceptions, the Government of Malta has failed to implement these recommendations and has rejected proposals to implement anti-corruption legislation” says a report published by the Daphne Caruana Galizia Foundation and Article 19. It says “changes introduced so far are token gestures, rather than the effective and systemic reforms urgently needed.”
