Index on Censorship today condemned the Police Minister Michael Farrugia for indulging in a public political battle with the grieving relatives of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

“This is a deeply discouraging development, said Joy Hyvarinen, head of advocacy at Index on Censorship. The Maltese authorities should be focusing on investigating the killing of Daphne Caruana Galizia, rather than engaging in a public fight with the grieving family.”

The family earlier published a statement on the subject.

Index on Censorship makes a good point though. Almost 50 days have gone by since Daphne Caruana Galizia was assassinated and we have not seen any sign of any investigation of any sort whatsoever.

As I saw it the day after Daphne was killed, Michael Farrugia should have resigned ages ago. But spitefully there he is still, channeling his delight that Daphne Caruana Galizia “got unlucky” (his words) in extending his sadism on to her family.
