I rose in the House to pay my respects to Ms. Daphne Caruana Galizia, the Maltese journalist whose life was tragically cut short when a bomb exploded in her car shortly after she left her home.
Ms. Caruana Galizia bravely investigated corruption and organised crime in Malta.
We unequivocally condemn this barbaric attack we express our deepest sympathy to her family, and to all those affected by her tragic death.
We must continue to support journalists from around the world in their pursuit of the truth and the preservation of the fourth estate.
As a former journalist, I praise Ms. Galizia’s dedication to truth, and call upon my colleagues in this House to stand united against this horrific attack.
