Prime Minister Joseph Muscat “has nothing to fear but the truth,” the family of assassinated journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia said in a statement in the wake of last night’s damning vote before the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

“The resolution of the Council of Europe's Parliamentary Assembly adopted by an overwhelming majority yesterday evening has brought our family closer to the truth: that Daphne would still be alive today if corruption in Malta were properly investigated and prosecuted by the authorities, if Malta’s institutions functioned as they should, and if Malta were a properly functioning democracy. We have done everything we could as a family for this basic truth to emerge.

“We now ask for the support of the international community to actively monitor Malta’s implementation of the resolution's most important recommendation: that the Maltese Prime Minister set in motion an independent and impartial judicial public inquiry into the circumstances of Daphne's assassination.”
