The news of fresh details in the case of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination are reaching far and wide and hitting international press.
If you aren’t currently aware of what’s going on in Malta right now, shame on you. These 5 countries have joined the fight for truth and justice, and a transparent government, have you?
1. The Netherlands
The Maltese community living in the Netherlands said they feel betrayed by “our Maltese Government, dragging Malta’s name and reputation through the mud”.
“We gathered here today with Maltese students, Maltese workers, and Maltese pensioners in the Netherlands, together with some international support.”
Hundreds of people gathered in central London during the first week of protests, as Maltese speakers rallied the crowd. Malta remained gripped in the fallout of the political crisis following top government official Keith Schembri being implicated in the murder plot and his subsequent resignation, followed closely by that of Konrad Mizzi.
Speakers at a protest held alongside the Manzanares river in Madrid had this to say, last week:
“After a turbulent week in Malta and the failure of our Prime Minister to resign from office, without letting us doubt the integrity of our justice system, we had to show that we stand with our family and friends back home.”
The Maltese communities in Berlin came together as well with one message for the Maltese government:
These are only a few of the largest international protests. The news has been everywhere, literally, and as the current state of Malta’s political crisis extends with witness testimonies over the coming weeks, we await the final pieces of one of Malta’s biggest scandals to fit into place.
