Malta court charges 3 with murder of journalist, 7 on bail

A court in Malta has charged three men with the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia, the investigative journalist who was killed by a auto bomb last month.

"In the almost two months since Daphne Caruana Galizia's death, the authorities have been unable to show that they are conducting their investigation in an impartial manner", Pauline Adès-Mével, head of RSF's EU-Balkans desk said in a statement. The crime shocked the Mediterranean island and raised concerns among European Union lawmakers about the rule of law there.

All three pleaded not guilty and were remanded in custody after a preliminary court hearing.

Last week, famed "A Prairie Home Companion" host Garrison Keillor was let go from Minnesota Public Radio for the same reason. She said the company wants to ensure a "harassment-free workplace", but didn't give details of the accusations.

The three suspects include brothers George Degiorgio, 55, and Alfred Degiorgio, 53, as well as Vincent Muscat, 55. A boat has been impounded. They were the first arrests in the case, in which the government has been accused of both political interference and incompetence.

Evidence gathered so far suggests the bomb was placed inside her rented vehicle while it was parked in an alley outside her house six miles from Valletta on the night before her death.

They were among 10 Maltese nationals arrested on Monday in connection with Galizia's murder. Caruana Galizia's son said she was killed because of her work.
