Daphne, a pen too sharp
On 16th October 2017, Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was assassinated in a car bomb attack close to her home. Her career focused on investigative reporting into government corruption and money laundering, and all of her findings were published on her personal blog Running Commentary. Attracting over 400,000 views per day, her blog was read more than all of the country’s newspapers combined. But with these high-profile revelations came relentless harassment and intimidation.
