Valleta:A Maltese investigative journalist Caruna Galizia was killed when a bomb exploded in her car.She had exposed the island nation’s link to offshore tax havens through the leaked Panama Papers.Maltese prime minister Joseph Muscat informed.
The investigative journalist had just driven away from her home in Mosta, a large town on Malta’s main island, when the bomb went off, sending the vehicle’s wreckage spiraling over a wall and into a field.
One of the topics she examined was the Maltese content in the Panama Papers leaked in 2016. She wrote that Muscat’s wife, the country’s energy minister and the government’s chief-of-staff had offshore holdings in Panama to receive money from Azerbaijan.
Muscat and his wife, Michelle, denied they had companies in Panama. Caruana Galizia filed a police report two weeks ago saying she was receiving threats, law enforcement officials told Malta news outlets today.
