Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was brutally killed in October 2017 by a car bomb just meters from her home. The investigation into her killing is ongoing, but there is little doubt that she was murdered because of her work. With a brazen, unapologetic and uncompromising style, she denounced corruption, nepotism, clientelism, and all kinds of criminal behaviors in her tiny EU member state.
Led by the organization Forbidden Stories, a group of 45 journalists representing 18 news organizations from 15 countries picked up Daphne’s work after it was abruptly halted by her gruesome death on the doorstep of Europe.
In October 2018, one year after Daphne’s murder, Forbidden Stories launched the second round of stories from the Daphne Project with the financial support of IJ4EU.
