Former Opposition leader Simon Busuttil said he picked a portrait of assassinated journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia out of a bin in Valletta today and placed it back onto the makeshift memorial at the foot of the Great Siege Monument.

“As I walked into Valletta, an old lady alerted me that the portrait of Daphne Caruana Galizia had just been thrown into a public bin,” Busuttil tweeted. “I retrieved it and put it back in place. This is the sorry state of our democracy under Joseph Muscat.”

The makeshift memorial was removed yesterday ahead of the annual Victory Day ceremony, which saw dignitaries place wreaths at the foot of the monument in honour of Maltese casualties of war.

However, activists restored it shortly afterwards and hung up notes across the capital to remind the public that the person who commissioned the journalist’s murder is still at large.
