Malta Court Charges 3 with Murder of Journalist, 7 on Bail

Tuesday, 05 December 2017 05:38 PM

VALLETTA, Malta (AP) — A Maltese court has charged three men with the murder of investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was killed by a car bomb Oct. 16.

Seven other Maltese men were released on bail pending further investigation.

The arrest of the 10 men Monday was the first breakthrough in a case that shocked the Mediterranean island and led the European Parliament to send a delegation on a fact-finding mission related to the rule of law in Malta.

The three main suspects arrived under heavy police escort at the court late Tuesday and were represented by a court-appointed lawyer.

Peter Caruana Galizia, the victim's husband, attended the hearing.

Daphne Caruana Galizia was a leading investigative reporter whose exposes focused on corruption, including among Malta's elite.
