Vigil Berlin: Two years without justice for Daphne Caruana Galizia

Wednesday, 16 October marked two years since the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia. The Maltese investigative journalist had been exposing and calling out corruption in her home country up to high government circles for decades. On 16 October 2017, at 14.59 pm, she was murdered by a car bomb in Malta. Even though the government recently announced a public inquiry in the brutal assassination, still justice has not been served.
