Daphne Caruana Galizia murder condemned by CIoJ

Notes to editors: Formed in 1884, the Chartered Institute of Journalists (CIoJ) is the world’s oldest established professional body for journalists, and a representative voice of media and communications professionals throughout the UK and the Commonwealth.

The Chartered Institute of Journalists has expressed its horror at the murder of investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in a car bomb explosion on the Island of Malta.

The Institute is the longest established professional association of journalists in the world and has regularly supported freedom of the media and its members in Malta over many years.

President Mark Croucher said: ‘The Institute sends its deepest condolences to Daphne’s family, friends and colleagues and the profession of journalists in Malta during this difficult time.’

He added: ‘The murder of a journalist with a reputation for vigorously holding power to account and who reportedly complained to police earlier about threats to her life is the worst attack possible.

Everything must be done to investigate this violation of free and independent journalism and bring the perpetrator(s) to justice.’

Ms Galizia, who was 53 years old,  maintained a hugely popular and controversial online blog titled: ‘Daphne Caruana Galizia’s Notebook | Running Commentary.’

She regularly accused leading politicians for corruption and it is reported she had recently investigated scandals linked to the leak of the Panama papers.
