MAHR Condemns Cowardice Act Against Freedom of Expression


The Malta Association of Human Rights (MAHR) condemns the barbaric and cowardly act in the brutal murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. Well-known for her investigative skills and a firm believer in freedom of the press, by her assassination, this country, a democratic Republic built on the rule of law, has been attacked at its very core. MAHR wishes to convey its condolences to the family of Daphne Carauna Galizia.
MAHR calls on Government, Parliament and its institutions to act with temerity in bringing the perpetrators to justice.
Malta cannot remain silent before those who threaten its fundamental rights and values.
