The Institute of Maltese Journalists (Istitut tal-Ġurnalisti Maltin) have responded after receiving complaints that the Prime Minister’s Office has repeatedly not invited certain newsrooms to press conferences.

The allegations come during a time of importance for the media following incredible developments in the investigation into the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Faced with such reports, the IGM have condemned the actions of the Prime Minister as “a most categorical means of censorship”.

The IGM noted the government is should not choose who to invite to press conferences, especially when the case is of such high national importance – as is the case of Caruana Galizia’s assassination.

The council was informed that although requests were made by a number of press houses and newsrooms, the Office of the Prime Minister failed to respond.

IGM has called for the Prime Minister to immediately stop the “adopted malpractices” stating that every newsroom and every journalist should be treated the same and allowed to continue to work freely.

What do you make of the Institute’s statement? Should every journalist in Malta be invited?
