DAVID HUDSON PRIME Minister Joseph Muscat has said the government aims to follow the Council of Europe's resolution to launch a public inquiry into the assas- sination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. In late June, the organisation's parlia- mentary assembly had adopted a reso- lution demanding that Malta open an independent public inquiry into the killing of Caruana Galizia. The Council of Europe gave Malta a three-month deadline for this to hap- pen, which expires on 26 September. Last July, Foreign Minister Carmelo Abela had stated during the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office's Media Freedom conference in London, that the government would be launching a public inquiry within three months. When yesterday, MaltaToday asked Muscat about the inquiry, he cut our questions short. "The 26 September," he said, under- lining the deadline set by the Council of Europe. "When it's time to make announce- ments, we will make them," Muscat said after exiting a Cabinet meeting held in Santa Venera to discuss Budget 2020. "We have a strong engagement with the Council of Europe… while I have strong reservations on the methodolo- gy used by the rapporteur of the parlia- mentary assembly when drawing up the resolution, I have huge respect for the Council of Europe," he said.
