A report alleging that one of the three people accused of murdering journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia tried to commit suicide is “not true”, the government said today.

Il-Mument today reported that George Degiorgio attempted to kill himself in the cell where he is being kept. He is accused of the murder together with his brother Alfred and Vince Muscat.

In a statement, the government said that it is not true that Degiorgio tried to kill himself making use of bed sheets.
