MALTA: MONEY TRAIL FROM DAPHNE CARUANA GALIZIA MURDER PROBE STRETCHES TO CHINA

On 29 March, a Special Report from Reuters says that a widening investigation into allegations of high-level corruption on the island of Malta, first levelled by murdered journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, stretches to China and a $400 million investment into Europe by a Chinese state power company.  Caruana Galizia was murdered in October 2017 as she investigated a web of companies that she believed were funnelling bribes to Maltese politicians.  Reuters and a consortium of journalists have traced 2 businesses involved in that web to relatives of a senior Chinese executive.
