Next Tuesday, 16 January, a group of free expression and anti-corruption NGOs will gather in London outside the Malta High Commission for a vigil to mark three months since the tragic murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was killed by a car bomb on 16 October.

The organisers – English PEN and Reporters without Borders – said that Caruana Galizia’s murder “highlights the extensive risks faced by journalists around the world, and the need to end the vicious cycle of violence against journalists and impunity for their attackers”.

They are calling on anyone able to attend to “show support for Daphne’s family and friends and to keep her memory alive”.

The event is being co-sponsored by fellow freedom of expression organisations ARTICLE 19, the Committee to Protect Journalists, Index on Censorship, PEN International and Transparency International.

The vigil will be held between 1 and 2pm GMT on Tuesday.
