MURDERED


Malta
Daphne Caruana Galizia, a prominent investigative journalist and blogger who reported on government corruption and the Panama Papers, was killed in a bomb attack in Malta in October 2017.

In 2021, one man pleaded guilty to taking part in the killing and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. The trials of two other alleged killers and the alleged mastermind were ongoing.

In at least 8 out of 10 cases, the murderers of journalists go free. CPJ is waging a global campaign against impunity.
