Rita Grech said her family won’t rule out suing the state over the death of Sion Grech, the transgender woman who was murdered in 2005.

In an interview on Jon Mallia’s podcast, Grech said they are considering taking legal action against the state, to finally get to know what happened on the tragic night of Sion’s murder.

“I want to know, why and how. I have a right to know. Until then, I won’t be able to sleep,” she told Mallia.

Sion Grech’s body was found decomposing in Marsa in April 2005. An autopsy revealed that the 20-year old had been stabbed to death at least 17 times, and then thrown into a field.

However, the case was plagued with serious failures from the start, beginning with the fact that it took 18 years to start and to this day, the alleged murderers roam free.

Rita Grech questioned how seriously the case was taken by police, naming a number of grave errors made throughout the investigation.

Some of the errors mentioned include the fact that police failed to stop the missing car which was stolen and reported seen in Paola, instead stopping the car behind that was following the stolen car. The magistrate also failed to sign 150 photos, including those at the crime scene, making them inadmissible in court.

These errors have taken away their right to know what happened to Sion, questioning every little detail she knew, Grech explained, warning authorities not to make the same mistake twice in the name of Sion.
