Friday, 1 November 2019, 12:34 Last update: about 5 years ago

Senior MaltaToday journalist Raphael Vassallo has sued blogger Emanuel Delia for libel, over an article which suggested that Vassallo may have had a hand in the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

The case relates to a post, penned by Delia on October 28, in which he accuses Vassallo of “covering up for the mafia, thereby being part of it.”

Vassallo vehemently rejected the assertion.

Lawyers Edward Gatt and Mark Vassallo are appearing for the journalist.
