May 12, 2020

The Maltese Department of Justice announced on Tuesday that it would launch an investigation into a lawyer’s transfer from prosecutor to defense in the trial for the murder of investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

“An investigation was opened after reports that a lawyer who worked in the General Prosecutor’s Office and joined the defense team one day after he resigned were charged with murdering the journalist.” The ministry reported in a statement.

The investigation is being conducted by former Supreme Court President Joseph Azzopardi, who will have to present his results by Justice Minister Edward Zammit by June 16, 2020.
