Nationalist Party leader Adrian Delia has refused to confirm whether he will attend tonight’s vigil in Valletta to mark six months since the car bomb assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. 

In a tweet this morning, Delia said that no answers have been given and no responsibility has been shouldered six months on.

“The people have a right to know, the people demand justice,” he said. 

However, a spokesperson for Delia refused to confirm with Lovin Malta whether or not the PN leader will attend tonight’s vigil in front of the law courts - that is being organised by the Civil Society Network, Occupy Justice, Il-Kenniesa and Awturi. 

“Adrian Delia believes the pertinent question is whether the people who ordered the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia have been found and not who will attend tonight’s vigil,” he said. 

Delia attended the first vigil for Caruana Galizia last October and demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, police commissioner Lawrence Cutajar and Attorney General Peter Grech. However, he has since kept away from the subsequent vigils and protests and, in a recent interview on TVM, he said he is doing so out of respect for Caruana Galizia’s family, who didn’t want him involved. 

In the months preceding her murder, Caruana Galizia wrote extensively about Adrian Delia - including about his financial situation and about how he had allegedly laundered money from a Soho prostitution ring a decade ago.
