Daphne Caruana Galizia Inquiry Verdict To Be Published Today, Discussed In Parliament Tomorrow

Prime Minister Robert Abela has announced in an official letter that he plans on publishing the report regarding the public inquiry into the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia today.

Among other things, a verdict is to be delivered on whether the state could have prevented the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Throughout its 19-month duration, judges on the public inquiry board heard a number of high-profile bombshell testimonies ranging from former prime minister Joseph Muscat to his right-hand men Keith Schembri and Konrad Mizzi.

Despite Parliament being in summer recess, Abela said the report needs to be discussed “as soon as possible” and wrote to speaker of the house Anglu Farrugia to urgently convene parliament on Friday morning.

“While the terms of the inquiry only require that the report be tabled in Parliament, I believe we need to do more and that a discussion about it should take place as soon as possible” Prime Minister Abela said.

Yesterday, Opposition leader Bernard Grech called for a bipartisan effort for concrete action on recommendations in the Caruana Galizia public inquiry.

“I want to ensure that together we take the initiative of answering the inquiry using concrete actions in the House, which close this dark chapter of our country once and for all,” Grech said.”

What do you think the public inquiry will reveal?
