Protesters rallied outside of the Maltese parliament building in Valletta on Monday, to demand justice for slain journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia and an investigation into possible corruption linked with the case.
The groups Republikka and Occupy Justice, who helped stage the demonstration, are calling for the establishment of Joint Investigation Teams with Europol to aid the investigation and help uncover the alleged involvement of Maltese government officials with the killing.
Caruana Galizia was killed in late 2017 by a car bomb planted inside her vehicle, after a long career in investigative journalism focusing on government corruption and organised crime in Malta.
Former prime minister Joseph Muscat stepped down in January after his Chief of Staff Keith Schembri, who gave evidence at a court hearing on Monday, was implicated in the Caruana Galizia investigation.
Multi-millionaire businessman Yorgen Fenech has been charged with complicity in the killing, but denies any involvement.
