A draft report dated 20th May from the EU Parliament’s Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights on the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, the rule of law in Malta, and ensuring that the “whole truth” emerges.  It contains a draft Resolution that could laid before the Parliament.  It refers to the fundamental weaknesses have allowed numerous major scandals to arise and go unchecked in Malta in recent years.  The report says it is proven that Malta’s government institutions, criminal justice system and law enforcement bodies do not comply with European standards on the rule of law; and that the Maltese authorities must implement all of the recommendations of the Venice Commission and GRECO, and those of MONEYVAL once made, as a matter of urgency.
