Major Revelations Expected As World’s Largest Newspapers Team Up To Investigate Daphne’s Stories
Expect the first story on Tuesday
A day before Malta marks six months since the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, a consortium of 45 journalists from 18 news organisations has announced its plans to investigate the late journalist’s stories.
The journalists hail from some of the world’s most famous media houses, including The New York Times, The Guardian, Le Monde, La Repubblica, and Suddeutsche Zeitung. Its Maltese media partner has been confirmed as The Times of Malta.
The project is being coordinated by Forbidden Stories, an international journalists’ organisation devoted to continuing the work of imprisoned and murdered journalists.
The journalists say they have spent the past five months studying over 750,000 files and official documents to complete Caruana Galizia’s work on corruption and money laundering. The first story will be published on Tuesday and others are expected to be published every few days.
Although the consortium didn’t give hints as to what its first story will be, the Times of Malta’s report pointed out that Caruana Galizia had written that Prime Minister Joseph Muscat’s wife was the secret owner of the offshore Panama company Egrant - a claim the Prime Minister has vehemently denied.
