Sophie In't Veld, the chairperson of the rule of law working group in the committee, described Malta's judicial process as "excruciatingly slow", owing to a lack of visible investigation and prose- cution, during a press conference on Wednesday. "It's shocking that in four and a half-years since the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia no justice has been served," she pointed out. "The alleged mastermind has not yet been convicted."

She acknowledged efforts from Maltese authori- ties to strengthen rule of law and combat corrup- tion, and noted cross-party efforts to implement Chairperson of the rule of law working group Sophie In't Veld (Photo: James Bianchi)
