Daphne Caruana Galizia, the journalist who led the Panama Papers investigation, was assassinated with a car bomb on October 16th, 2017.
She made enemies out of a lot of powerful people during her career, and she just paid the ultimate price for it. The question now is, who will investigate her murder? Who would dare to? Perhaps someone as fearless as she was. Perhaps they will be next. Whoever it is, the truth about this incident must be known.
Julian Assange, upon hearing the news, issued this over Twitter: “I issue a €20k reward for information leading to the conviction of her killers.”
Somehow, I don’t think that money is the primary factor for those who would take up this challenge. Power to them, and luck.
