The European Parliament will be the renaming the Strasbourg HQ press room after Daphne Caruana Galizia to honour the memory of the slain Maltese investigative journalist.

The news was announced this morning by MEP David Casa, who had requested that the Caruana Galizia family be invited to a European Parliament session today. The European Parliament had announced last week that it would be questioning the European Commission on the rule of law in Malta following the murder of Caruana Galizia.

In a Facebook post announcing the news, Casa commended the decision as a fitting tribute to “a national hero who embodied the principles of free press”.

Apart from getting a great deal of positive response as “a fitting tribute to the champion of freedom of speech”, the announcement was also met with some other suggestions.

“We should name streets and schools after her not to ever forget why she was assassinated,” one person said, with another comment suggesting a renaming of Malta’s own Parliament Hall.

A sentiment of unbalanced action back at home seemed to be strong amongst many people, with some people wondering what honours Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has in store for Caruana Galizia. “We haven’t even flown our flags at half mast”, one person remarked.

Do you think this tribute is a fitting one?
