Family and friends of Daphne Caruana Galizia gathered to pay their respects and remember the late journalist, three years after she was brutally murdered in a car bomb.
And three years on, the calls for justice remain strong.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the public was discouraged from attending today’s silent gathering in person. However, some still showed up to pay their respects, placing flowers at the site and looking afar at banner displaying Caruana Galizia’s face and the sign with the words ‘JUSTICE’ written upon it.
At 3pm, people formed a line and made their way to the exact spot where the car exploded, placing flowers at the bed of the site.
The gathering was also attended by two musicians who sang a rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence.
A number of activists and activist organisations were in attendance as well as local figures such as Ann Fenech, Manuel Delia and Opposition Leader Bernard Grech.
Helena Asciak, Caruana Galizia’s sister, was also present.
Over the past three years, there have been major developments in the murder case with prime suspect Yorgen Fenech being charged in connection with her assassination.
