Daphne Caruana Galizia ‘was not investigating any of the ten suspects arrested Monday’

Contrary to media reports, Daphne Caruana Galizia was not investigating the ten suspects who were arrested last Monday, a statement from her family said.  This can be verified by running a search for their names on

The names of suspects who are now out on police bail first appeared in an Italian publication which said that Daphne Caruana Galizia wrote frequently about one of them in particular. 


The statement said that a search for the man's name on will turn up three short posts, none of which are investigative and all of which were published more than three years ago on the same day.

There are no earlier or later posts about this person and there are no posts at all on the six other names mentioned in the Italian media. There are also no posts about Vincent Muscat, George Degiorgio, or Alfred Degiorgio, who were arraigned Tuesday night.

The family said Daphne’s blog has remained the way it was when she died and this is the way it will remain indefinitely. “There are no plans to remove the site or any part of its contents. Nothing has been removed from the site and nothing has been added to it. All posts remain online in the same format in which they were first uploaded by Daphne Caruana Galizia herself.”

“ is a real-time, first person account of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s opinions, reports and investigations.  It is accessible 24 hours a day from anywhere by anyone with an Internet connection. Rather than relying on information sources who push a particular line persistently and who may have interests that do not coincide with the truth, anyone who wants to check what Daphne Caruana Galizia wrote, about whom, and when, and whether she wrote about a particular person at all should refer to the website.”
