    Default Car-Bomb Kills Caruana Galizia, who Leaked The Panama Papers Revelations

    According to local media reports, Caruana Galizia filed a police report 15 days ago to say that she had been receiving death threats.

    The journalist posted her final blog on her Running Commentary website at 2.35pm on Monday, and the explosion, which occurred near her home, was reported to police just after 3pm. Officers said her body had not yet been identified. According to sources, one of her sons heard the blast from their home and rushed out to the scene.

    Caruana Galizia, who claimed to have no political affiliations, set her sights on a wide range of targets, from banks facilitating money laundering to links between Malta’s online gaming industry and the Mafia.

    Over the last two years, her reporting had largely focused on revelations from the Panama Papers, a cache of 11.5m documents leaked from the internal database of the world’s fourth largest offshore law firm, Mossack Fonseca.

    The data was obtained by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and shared with media partners around the world, including the Guardian, by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) in Washington.

    So very sad. I hope her life inspires other honest journalists to pursue the truth. Not enough of her kind on our lonely planet.

    Tragic, and genuinely shocking.

    A good article about this here — with many others to come, I'd be sure.
    Unfortunately, it demonstrates that being a true investigative reporter can sometimes anger extremely dangerous enemies.

    She was investigating the Prime Minister and two of his top aides, allegedly involved in high-level corruption & financial crime (what's new?).



    It's a dangerous business, the truth.

    Rest In Peace.

    Son of slain anti-corruption journalist calls Malta a "mafia state"



    Published on 17 Oct 2017
    In Malta, the son of an anti-corruption journalist killed in a car bomb has called the
    country a "mafia state" run by what he calls "crooks". Matthew Caruana Galizia has
    described the moment he ran to the burning vehicle in which his mother Daphne
    died. Daphne ran a blog highlighting cases of alleged corruption among politicians
    on the island.

    She was a fearless journalist who always told it like it was. She wasn't afraid of who to offend and didn't pull her punches. She exposed the island of Malta as being riddled with corruption and conflict of interest shady deals, shabby compromise, bribes, nepotism, lies and corruption everywhere especially among the ruling caste (in all the political parties) who treated parliament as a private members club and the rule of law as an inconvenience. Sadly she has paid the ultimate price. She will be missed.

    In an emotional Facebook post, Galizia's son, wrote about his futile attempts to rescue his mother from the car that was like an "inferno in the field", "screaming at two policemen who turned up with one fire extinguisher to douse the flames".

    Matthew Caruana Galizia
    Hier, à 01:47 ·

    My mother was assassinated because she stood between the rule of law and those who sought to violate it, like many strong journalists. But she was also targeted because she was the only person doing so. This is what happens when the institutions of the state are incapacitated: the last person left standing is often a journalist. Which makes her the first person left dead.

    I am never going to forget, running around the inferno in the field, trying to figure out a way to open the door, the horn of the car still blaring, screaming at two policemen who turned up with a single fire extinguisher to use it. They stared at me. “I’m sorry, there is nothing we can do”, one of them said. I looked down and there were my mother’s body parts all around me. I realised they were right, it was hopeless. “Who is in the car?”, they asked me. “My mother is in the car. She is dead. She is dead because of your incompetence.” Yes, incompetence and negligence that resulted in a failure to prevent this from happening.

    I am sorry for being graphic, but this is what war looks like, and you need to know. This was no ordinary murder and it was not tragic. Tragic is someone being run over by a bus. When there is blood and fire all around you, that’s war. We are a people at war against the state and organised crime, which have become indistinguishable.

    A few hours later, while that clown of a Prime Minister was making statements to parliament about a journalist he spent over a decade demonising and harassing, one of the police sergeants who is supposed to be investigating her murder, Ramon Mifsud, posted on Facebook, “Everyone gets what they deserve, cow dung! Feeling happy

    Yes, this is where we are: a mafia state where you can now change your gender on your ID card (thank God for that!) but where you will be blown to pieces for exercising your basic freedoms. Only for the people who are supposed to have protected you to instead be celebrating it. How did we get here?

    A culture of impunity has been allowed to flourish by the government in Malta. It is of little comfort for the Prime Minister of this country to say that he will “not rest” until the perpetrators are found, when he heads a government that encouraged that same impunity. First he filled his office with crooks, then he filled the police with crooks and imbeciles, then he filled the courts with crooks and incompetents. If the institutions were already working, there would be no assassination to investigate - and my brothers and I would still have a mother.

    Joseph Muscat, Keith Schembri, Chris Cardona, Konrad Mizzi, the Attorney General and the long list of police commissioners who took no action: you are complicit. You are responsible for this.
