The European Parliament pays tribute to Daphne Caruana Galizia through work of art
The European Parliament paid tribute to investigative journalists Daphne Caruana Galizia and Jan Kuciak, during an event today in which a work of art created in honour of the slain journalists was unveiled. Member of the European Parliament David Casa organised this exhibition at the European Parliament, together with Slovak MEP from the ECR Group Lucia Duris Nicholsonova.
The inauguration was held in the presence of relatives of Daphne Caruana Galizia and Jan Kuciak, as well as the Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Jourova and the Vice-President of the European Parliament Mairead McGuinness.
In his speech, Casa, who forms part of the European Parliament’s administration as a Quaestor, insisted that justice in both the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia as well as with respect to her investigations, is still being prevented from running its course. “Politicians complicit with the accused murderers are still on the loose. We will not rest until they are brought to justice, until there is real change,” Casa said.
He praised the European Parliament for always standing with the Maltese and Gozitan people, with Daphne Caruana Galizia, and with her family. “We must never again allow journalists to endure what Daphne and Jan endured. We will continue to do everything in our power to protect investigative journalists.”
David Casa, in his role within Parliament’s Bureau, worked to establish the Daphne Caruana Galizia Prize for investigative journalism.
