Dark Day for Democracy in Malta : Assassination of Investigative Journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia

Noted investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was killed in a strong car bomb blast a day back. Described in the words of MaltaToday's editor Saviour Balzan, "Definitely a brave journalist...courageous - most of the times,reckless too."



A significant part of the Maltese journalist community and her own family have reckoned to the fact that the establishment had a major role to play behind her assassination. The 53 year old woman authored a blog called 'Running Commentary',which was read more widely than all the top newspapers and e-papers in the country combined. 




Daphne had been exposing the loopholes in the governmental administration and the contrast between the extremely luxurious lifestyles adopted by the officials and that of the common masses in Malta. She had also been active in reporting the crooked intentions of the big businessmen and industries.

The mafia style murder that has been devised to eliminate her voice have left the people of Malta in sheer shock. The direct question to the purity of the functioning systems have been questioned repetitively ever since "the dark day of democracy" surfaced up on 17th October. 
Extremely similar to the Indian state authority's response on the murder of investigative journalist Gauri Lankesh,
the state authority has been mostly silent on the context of Daphne's assassination.
