The pressure group Occupy Justice last night put up posters outside the Prime Minister’s Office in Castille and Pilatus Bank, six months to the day since the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, his Chief of Staff Keith Schembri and Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi were the main target of the activists. 

In a statement, Occupy Justice said the three men star in mock-movies such as The Greatest Salesman (a pun on The Greatest Showman); Crookfellas (Goodfellas); We need to talk about Keith ((We need to talk about Kevin); Lord of the Lies (Lord of the Flies); Dial C for Corruption (Dial D for Don); Fifty shades of Konrad (Fifty Shades of Gray); and My Big Fat Iranian Wedding (By Big Fat Greek Wedding).

The posters, which were hung on bollards and lampposts around Castille Square in front of the Prime Minister’s office and in front of Whitehall mansions, seat of Pilatus bank, all carried the #occupyjustice tagline. 

“The posters show exactly what we think of the despicable people who are running the country and they all highlight the ridiculous – and dangerous - state of rule of law in Malta,” said #occupyjustice, an activist group led by women. 

“Daphne Caruana Galizia was assassinated while uncovering shocking corruption stories. Six months on, we still have no clue as to who commissioned the killing and not a not one single person has assumed political responsibility for her assassination,” they said, reiterating that they won’t be silenced until justice was served. 

“This is our nation, this is our home, and we are the people. We expect better, we deserve better, we demand better.”
