Alfred and George Degiorgio, the two brothers charged with carrying out the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, have launched a fresh request for a presidential pardon.

The brothers have already had one pardon request rejected by Cabinet. In a letter sent to President George Vella signed by lawyer William Cuschieri, the brothers insist that the President should not follow Cabinet’s recommendation, particularly given that the allegations involve a sitting minister.

They requested a pardon in order to reveal the identity of an as yet unidentified mastermind in the murder, who they claim to have been a sitting minister at the time. They also claim they are ready to provide information on crimes relating to aggravated theft and homicide, by naming two masterminds, one of whom was a minister and one of whom is currently a minister, as well as all people involved in the crime.

Daphne Caruana Galizia’s family have been vociferously opposed to granting the men a pardon, arguing that the mechanism allowed criminals to walk free in lieu of proper police work.

Should the men be granted some form of pardon?
