The Committee to Protect Journalists, along with seven other press freedom organizations, today sent a joint letter urging EU diplomats in Malta to monitor the ongoing trial of three suspects arrested in relation to the murder of investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

The letter calls on the diplomats to monitor court proceedings and ensure they are carried out to international standards. Civil society groups, journalists, and the Caruana Galizia family have raised concerns about the independence of the investigation.
