Malta:  Daphne Caruana Galizia, an investigative journalist who was outspoken against government corruption, was murdered by a car bomb. Galizia was characterized as a one-woman WikiLeaks'” and she led the “Panama Papers” investigation of offshore tax evasion in Malta.  Her son blamed the government, which he characterized as organized crime; the police who refused to protect her; and Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, who he says demonized and harassed her. Julian Assange of WikiLeaks is offering a €20,000 reward that leads to the conviction of Galizia’s murderer.  -GEG 
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will pay €20,000 to anyone providing information leading to the conviction of the killers of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, who died in a car bomb.

The investigative journalist died after the car she was travelling in exploded near her home in Bidnija, northern Malta, at around 3pm on Monday. Maltese police have opened a murder inquiry.

The 53 year old ran the hugely popular ‘Running Commentary’ blog which led Malta’s Panama Papers investigation and highlighted several other corruption scandals in the Mediterranean island nation.

In a post on Twitter Assange expressed his horror at Caruana Galizia’s death.

“Outraged to hear that Maltese investigative journalist and blogger Daphne Caruana Galizia has been murdered this afternoon not far from her home with a car bomb,” he said. Assange also added information about the proposed reward.

The blog’s most recent revelations took aim at Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and two of his closest aides.

“Everyone knows Ms Caruana Galizia was a harsh critic of mine both politically and personally, but nobody can justify this barbaric act in any way,” Muscat said at a press conference.

In a lengthy and emotional post on Facebook, Dauphne’s son, Matthew Caruana Galizia, described in vivid detail what happened in the aftermath of the explosion. He also lashed out at several Maltese politicians, including Muscat, and attacked the “culture of impunity (which) has been allowed to flourish by the government in Malta.”

Maltese TV station TVM reported that Caruana Galizia had filed a complaint to the police two weeks before her killing to say she had received threats but gave no further information.
