Opposition Leader Bernard Grech is urging Police Commissioner Angelo Gafa to solve the political murder of Karin Grech, 43 years after the 15-year-old was killed by a letterbomb addressed to her father.
Grech took to Facebook to commemorate his cousin on the anniversary of her death in 1977, which shook the nation but remains unsolved to this day.
“Karin’s murder remains a stain on our country’s recent political history and a family wound,” he said.
“I continue to hope the whole truth about this crime will be known and await the day it is solved.”
The Opposition Leader also said the “ugly chapter” in our history can only be closed when the crime is solved and urged the Police Commissioner “to do everything possible to solve these political crimes despite the passage of time”.
The murder of those in the outer-circles of politics has become a stain on Maltese history.
In 2017, journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was murdered for her investigative work into corruption allegations involving a string of ministers and business moguls.
“We need to continue to give birth to a mature policy that does not allow anyone to try to use murder to attack one party or another, or to attack one politician or another,” he continued.
Tributes have been pouring in for the late 15-year-old who was killed by a letter-bomb at her home addressed to her father, Professor Edwin Grech.
At the time, doctors at Saint Luke’s Hospital had issued a strike following a fallout with the Labour Government. Despite this, Grech still continued to go to work.
