Even if you kill a journalist, the stories will not be silenced - The murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia in Malta


The investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia paid the highest price for exposing corruption to the highest levels of government in Malta - She was murdered four years ago, on October 16 in 2017 in broad daylight. Caroline Muscat, one of her close friends, was one of the first people at the crime scene. She continued Galizia’s investigations to send out a message: Even if you kill a journalist, the stories will not be silenced. Muscat wants to ensure that “such a horrible act results in something positive”, like she puts it. Yet, the toxic atmosphere in Malta has not changed to this day: Critical journalists still see themselves confronted with a climate of hatred caused by leading political forces and their army of internet trolls. Also taking part in the podcast is Rebecca Vincent, RSF Director of International Campaigns. She has been on the ground in Malta from the beginning to fight for full criminal justice in the case and for the protection of journalists. Caroline Muscat was in Berlin as part of an RSF scholarship.
