GE pays tribute to journalist DAPHNE CARUANA GALIZIA, three years after her murder


GAMAG EUROPA pays tribute to murdered journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia on the third anniversary of her brutal killing by a car bomb on 16 October 2017 in recognition of her contribution as a female investigative journalist to exposing corruption and advancing the rule of law in Malta and Europe.

In a context where press freedom is under attack, Daphne’s courage and determination to expose the truth in the public interest continues to be a leading light in the struggle for democratic freedoms under threat.

Through her investigative journalism, Daphne worked relentlessly to fight for freedom of expression, she called out misogny and pursued investigations into corruption at the highest levels of government despite the professional harassment that she suffered throughout her career.

Daphne was constantly the target of attacks. The widely-reported harassment she faced online by hate groups followed multiple attacks on her home and her family.

“Daphne pushed forward through the insults, intimidation, condescension and attacks, but it ultimately led to her death. She was killed as a result of her work. She was killed because those in power wanted her silenced,” said Teresa Carreras, GAMAG EUROPE coordinator.

GAMAG EUROPA condemns such practices and calls for urgent action to stop further harassment of others in the profession.

Three years since her death, there is still no justice for her in a European Union Member State. Impunity for her murder is a risk to all of Europe, once a bastion in the defence of press freedom as a fourth pillar in a democracy.

GAMAG, The Global Alliance on Media and Gender, and GAMAG EUROPA, its european chapter, pays tribute to her courage, her fearlessness and to the impact she had not just in Malta, but across the world. We join the call for justice for Daphne and an end to impunity.
