Daphne Caruana Galizia’s husband and three sons have filed a police report accusing Neville Gafà of stalking their mother the day before she was assassinated in a car explosion.

In a formal criminal complaint (known as kwerela), the Caruana Galizia family reported how on 15 October 2017 between 1pm and 4pm, Neville Gafa and or a person known to him followed Peter and Daphne Caruana Galizia around Floriana.

This was actually stated by Neville Gafà himself in a Facebook post published on 15 October at 4pm. The post carries photos of Peter and Daphne Caruana Galizia taken 24 hours before the end of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s life.

In their complaint, the Caruana Galizia family argued that Neville Gafà’s behaviour constitutes the crime of stalking as defined by the criminal code which defines stalking as harassment of a person including by “following a person” or “watching or spying on a person”.
