Maltese journalist who led Panama Papers investigation killed in car bomb

Yahoo Animals and Pets - Mon, 10/16/2017 - 10:05

Maltese journalist who led Panama Papers investigation killed in car bombMalta’s prime minister has appealed for national unity following the murder of a campaigning journalist who had accused his government of corruption. Daphne Caruana Galizia, 53, achieved fame and notoriety for investigative reporting laced with scathing commentary about allegedly corrupt officials and businessmen. She was killed on Monday when a powerful bomb blew up her car. Forensic experts on the scene of the explosion which killed investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in Bidnija, Malta Credit: Darrin Zammit Lupi/Reuters Police said the bomb went off while she was driving near the village of Bidnija in northern Malta on Monday afternoon. Joseph Muscat, the Maltese Prime Minister, denounced her murder as a "barbaric attack on press freedom". "I will not rest until I see justice done in this case. Our country deserves justice," he said in a televised statement.  Caruna Galizia’s blog, Running Commentary, was one the most widely read websites on Malta and led the investigation of corruption allegations stemming from revelations in the so-called Panama Papers leak. This is a spiteful attack on a citizen and freedom of expression. I will not rest until justice is done. The country deserves justice -JM— Joseph Muscat (@JosephMuscat_JM) 16 October 2017 It was famed for a relentless pursuit of cases of apparent corruption and incendiary, sometimes highly personal, comments that saw her embroiled in frequent legal battles. Earlier this year Politico magazine listed her as one of the 28 men and women “making and shaking Europe” for her unrelenting crusade against what she saw as Malta’s culture of “cronyism” and opaque government.

Earlier this year Caruna Galizia claimed documents from a small Malta-based bank showed that Mr Muscat’s wife was the beneficial owner of a company in Panama, and that large sums of money had been moved between the company and bank accounts in Azerbaijan. The couple denied the accusation.  Mr Muscat called - and won - early elections in June as a vote of confidence to counter Caruana Galizia's allegations of corruption. In her last blog post, published just hours before she died, she bemoaned the lack of progress in prosecuting alleged corruption cases.   “There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate,” she wrote in the last line.

Hillary Clinton breaks toe falling down stairs, misses BBC interviewHillary Clinton was delayed arriving for the filming of the BBC's Graham Norton Show due to a broken toe. The former US presidential candidate arrived for the recording of Norton's BBC One show wearing a surgical boot. Mrs Clinton said: "I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards. "I tried to get up and it really hurt. I've broken my toe. I've received excellent care from your excellent health service." Mrs Clinton is said to be "very apologetic" after missing her slot on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour due to delays. The former presidential candidate was due to speak about why she lost the 2016 US presidential election to Republican Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton appeared on the BBC's Graham Norton Show wearing a surgical boot. Credit: Ian West/PA Presenter Jane Garvey apologised to listeners close to the programme's end, saying: "Hillary Clinton has been delayed this morning, as I've already said ... she's not going to make it before the end of the programme. I'm really, really sorry about that. I think you probably understand just how sorry I am. "But we are working very, very hard to get this interview rescheduled and Hillary Clinton is very apologetic. "So what can I say, that's the situation." It follows a string of late arrivals by the former US secretary of state over the weekend. Mrs Clinton was about 45 minutes late for a speech at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on Sunday to promote her new book, What Happened. She was also delayed a similar amount of time on Saturday, when she was presented with an honorary doctorate at Swansea University. Meanwhile, her husband Bill was forced to postpone a planned intervention in Northern Ireland's political stalemate because of storm Ophelia. The Press Association understands the former US president had been due in the region on Monday to meet warring political parties as they continue to struggle to reach a deal to restore the collapsed Executive. But the visit was called off at late notice due to the severe weather warnings. It is understood the visit may still take place on Tuesday.
