The blame is at their door

I am thinking it is all the fault of the Caruana Galizia family that the concluded inquiry they sought about Daphne's infamous killing is now mired in controversy.

Joe Brincat's reasoning and his recourse to court about it are not to be lightly dismissed. He may have been a Labour Party minister, but he was never one who held opinions and did not stand by them.

The family got the judges they wanted, and the result of the judges' deliberations is now being questioned.

It is all the fault of the family. To have as legal counsel a firebrand politician of the sort of Jason Azzopardi was inviting the outcome they have got. All he thinks of is his political standing with the decimated Nationalist Party electorate, even before his political party. Whose interests was he promoting, the family's or his own?

Why did they resort to such a controversial politician for a lawyer. They have fallen victim to his thinking. The surprise is that Daphne's husband is himself a lawyer and he should have known better.

Roger Mifsud,
