Bernard Grech Calls On Citizens To ‘Wake Up’ After Special Release For Daphne Caruana Galizia’s Murderer
PN Leader Bernard Grech has called upon citizens to wake up after a special release was authorised by Malta’s prison for investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murderer to attend a family party.
“This is Malta under Robert Abela. Wake up!” Grech wrote on social media.
“This impunity will stop if we get up and unite against it. We all want a better Malta,” he appealed.
“This is the moment when everyone needs to put aside their differences. We are not perfect, we have many shortcomings, but together we can be stronger than this evil.”
“Malta deserves better. You deserve better. You can give birth to a better Malta,” he said.
Revealed by Times of Malta a few moments ago, George Degiorgio was allowed out of prison temporarily on Friday night, with photos showing him smiling with his relatives – all with the authorities’ blessing.
A representative for the murderer has argued that the release was done with the correct paperwork, in accordance with all the necessary requests and authorisation from the relevant authorities.
“The Correctional Services Agency followed its procedures following those decisions,” they said, adding that he was escorted by a special escort.
Last October, the DeGiorgio brothers pleaded guilty to murdering Caruana Galizia, being sentenced to 40 years in prison.
