Labour MEPs should not be afraid to debate new developments in the European Parlament. They have lost a golden opportunity that could have helped discover new facts concerning Daphne Caruana Galizia.
While it is true that EEP are putting pressure on Malta and are set on damaging Malta’s reputation even further, honest MEPs should not be afraid to debate the new evidence that has emerged in court relating to her assassination. Indeed, they should welcome this request. The reasons are the following.
First this debate would have given the Maltese MEPs the opportunity to debate why there was a plan to blow Daphne Caruana Galizia irrespective of whether she was alone or with others, but this plan was then aborted. The debate should have focused on this latter point: why was the plan aborted? Why did the killers deem it risky to blow up Daphne if she was in the company of other members of the family? Why was whoever was commissioning this killing becoming so concerned about this factor?
The second point that should have been considered is the disclosure made by Vince Muscat, known as il-Koħħu, regarding the aborted plan to kill Daphne Caruana Galizia in 2015. Back then, neither 17Black nor Electrogas were in the news. Nor was Yorgen Fenech involved in this murder. Therefore, who are the mastermind or masterminds behind this murder. Thus, the question that needs to be asked is whether, Daphne Caruana Galizia had already started working on fuel smuggling with Libya in 2015? For sure, Daphne Caruana Galizia wrote about this matter more than once in 2016.
The third and last point. Why are the family and the authorities not willing to disclose the contents of Daphne’s email exchanges? Are the police privy to the contents of her emails and the contents of her computer? If yes, are they prepared do speak up in court as to what these exchanges are and to disclose the contents of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s communications and investigations in particular where the oil smuggling with Libya is concerned? But is there other information in her computer which can reveal other motives to what has brought her assassination?
At the end of the day, like any murder investigation no stone should be left unturned to get to the bottom of the mystery to identify whoever is responsible and as to the why.
The willingness of the European Parliament to seriously debate these points would be another step forward in unravelling this murder case which is unfolding like Pandora’s box. In fact, every time somebody takes the witness stand instead of getting closer to solving the case – except that we have one man who has admitted to being one of the hitmen – more and more inconsistencies are emerging.
