2018-10-16T07:33:52+02:00Tue, 16th Oct '18, 07:33|

This is the front page of today's The Independent. From their report: "'It appears that absolutely nothing is happening. When we asked for updates, the response from the prosecutor [who is also the attorney general] was to mock us publicly, saying that they cannot provide a ‘running commentary’  – that was the name of my [...]

ARD: A year since Daphne’s assassination

2018-10-15T14:52:21+02:00Mon, 15th Oct '18, 14:52|

German National Television marked the year since the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia with this short. Below is an English translation provided by a volunteer who helps out with this website and unlike me speaks German. Andrew Caruana Galizia's life changed completely a year ago. Nothing is the same as it used to be. He [...]

Agence France Presse: Daphne, one year on

2018-10-15T10:03:31+02:00Mon, 15th Oct '18, 10:03|

Surprisingly and exceptionally the office of the Prime Minister has decided to answer questions from an international press organisation. It hasn't done so for months now even telling some journalists they would consider answering their questions if those did not include any reference to Daphne Caruana Galizia. Of course, it's all the formalistic lip service [...]

Here’s your answer

2018-10-15T08:50:03+02:00Mon, 15th Oct '18, 08:46|

Reporters without Borders, the Committee to Protect Journalists, 60 per Daphne, the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom and PEN International laid flowers and candles and left messages in front of the court building in memory of Daphne Caruana Galizia and demanding justice for her as a journalist killed in the line of duty.

The volleys of the damned

2018-10-14T12:22:03+02:00Sun, 14th Oct '18, 11:33|

Malta Today’s story on David Casa can’t have been published on the 14th of October by some coincidence. The choice of date serves the interests of those whose hearts are warmed by the bad weather today because the anniversary of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s killing is not being marked. An anonymous former staffer who worked for [...]

THE SUNDAY TIMES: The state of journalism

2018-10-14T11:27:45+02:00Sun, 14th Oct '18, 11:27|

From my article in The Sunday Times today: "Sure enough the moment that One TV report about my collaboration in a campaign against Malta came up, the Labour Party’s vigilantes got to work. My Facebook page was flooded by messages of trolls, most not anonymous, recommending my exile, my arrest, my punishment, even my suicide. [...]

Owen Bonnici lies again

2018-10-14T07:23:19+02:00Sun, 14th Oct '18, 07:23|

When Owen Bonnici lies he looks like a silly schoolboy. When the Minister of Justice lies it is a shocking embarrassment and yet more evidence that our institutions have been hijacked by banana republic tyrants. In a government statement yesterday Owen Bonnici said he had asked the Council of Europe’s Venice Commission for advice on [...]

And they call me a traitor

2018-10-14T06:37:18+02:00Sun, 14th Oct '18, 06:37|

Henley & Partners is now branding Maltese citizenship as a status symbol to be ticked off by the stupidly rich who “have a yacht and two aeroplanes”. Do you know many people who have a yacht and two aeroplanes? Although to be fair the real question ought to be: do you want to know anyone [...]

Fr Joe Borg interviewed John Sweeney this morning ahead of the BBC journalist's Freedom Lecture on Monday. He was told by a listener that he's being "fed wrong information".

Stand Up for Truth and Justice

2018-10-13T07:59:11+02:00Sat, 13th Oct '18, 07:59|

On behalf of my colleagues organising the Truth and Justice campaign, I would like to thank Steve Hili for his show last Sunday. And I would like to thank LovinMalta for feature the event on their site. Here are Tim Diacono's notes from the evening. Satire is a bit of a lost trade here in [...]

Spin can sometimes be insufferable.

2018-10-13T07:35:53+02:00Sat, 13th Oct '18, 07:09|

Consider this heading in a The Malta Independent report from a couple of days ago: “Temporary ITS Luqa Campus inaugurated”. “Temporary” suggests the place is a stop-gap solution, something on the way to a more permanent solution. An urgent fix that was needed until something better props up. And that would be an accurate impression. [...]

Where was Chris Cardona?

2018-10-13T08:39:15+02:00Sat, 13th Oct '18, 06:32|

When Keith Arnaud, the police inspector in the investigation on who killed Daphne Caruana Galizia, was interrogating Alfred Degiorgio he took il-Fulu through the devastating evidence they had to prove he killed the journalist. Keith Arnaud showed Alfred Degiorgio the police had all the answers. Records of SIM card purchases, the movements of phones, records [...]
