The UK Government has closely followed the case of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia since the assassination on 16 October 2017. I raised the matter with the Maltese Foreign Minister, Carmelo Abela in April last year and the Home Secretary sought an update on the progress of the criminal investigation from the Maltese Interior Minister during a meeting held in London last November. As the judicial process runs its course, our High Commission in Valletta remains in close touch with the Maltese authorities and stands ready to consider any request for assistance.
