Ten people have been arrested in connection with the Daphne Caruana Galizia murder
All of them are Maltese, and some of them were known to the police, and their arrests were made on the grounds of a “reasonable suspicion” that they were involved in the 16 October car bomb which killed the journalist
They were arrested in an operation involving the secret services, the police and the Armed Forces of Malta
the Police now have 48 hours to question the suspects and to decide on whether to prosecute in Court
MEPs on a fact-finding mission to Malta after the killing of the investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia have said they arrived “seriously concerned” about the rule of law on the island and were leaving “even more worried”. Dispatched after the European parliament demanded that EU authorities open a formal dialogue with Malta over the death, the delegation said an apparent reluctance to investigate and prosecute major cases had created a “perception of impunity”.
Two brothers, Alfred and George Degiorgio, are the main suspects in the investigation into the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.
Sources said the criminal gang that the Degiorgios formed part of used a building at the wharf to discuss and plan criminal activity.
Helicopters, sniffer dogs and an AFM patrol boat were all spotted at the scene.
George Degiorgio, also known as Iċ-Ċiniz, and his brother Alfred, known as Il-Fulu, both have a criminal history.
