29 April, 10:41

    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, APR 29 - The latest revelations on the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia spark great concern, in particular over the possible involvement of ministers and politicians in Malta, said a resolution approved with 635 votes in favor, 46 against and 12 abstentions by the European Parliament. The resolution examined the latest developments in the case concerning the Maltese investigative reporter who was killed by a car bomb and other connected probes, after the testimony provided by convicted criminal Vincent Muscat.

    Expressing deep concern over the possible involvement in the murder case of sitting ministers and politicians, the lawmakers urged the government to ensure that those implicated in all cases brought to light by the journalist face justice.

    The MEPs recognized progress made in the investigation on the murder and other connected cases of corruption and money laundering, "although with great delay", and asked for the probe to go beyond the role of the chief of staff of the previous prime minister. All charges of corruption and fraud should be investigated and pursued "with the necessary rigor and at the appropriate level". (ANSAmed).
