Commissioner urges the Maltese government to ensure the independence of the investigation into the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia

The Commissioner published today an exchange of letters with the Maltese government concerning the investigation into the murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

In the letter to the Prime Minister sent on 26 November, the Commissioner expressed concerns regarding alleged political interference in the investigation. She called on the Maltese government to refrain from any action which would prevent the investigation from being or being seen as fully independent.

The Commissioner has followed developments which occurred during the week and will continue to pay close attention to the ongoing investigation.
