George Degiorgio, together with his brother Alfred, are currently awaiting trial, having been indicted for carrying out the 2017 murder of journalist Daph- ne Caruana Galizia. Degiorgio has since admitted to the kill- ing in an interview with Reuters, but is still in the process of negotiating a plea deal with the Attorney General. His statement to the international press has no bearing on criminal proceedings as the admission was not made in court. The constitutional case decided yester- day stems from a decision handed down last year in another constitutional court, awarding the now self-confessed hitman €10,000 for a breach to his right to pri- vacy and family life, after it emerged the phone taps were made on the strength of an expired warrant issued in February 2017.
