Daphne Caruana Galizia was known as a “one-woman WikiLeaks”, so it’s no surprise Julian Assange is looking for justice for his fellow truth-seeker.

Assange took to Twitter after the investigative journalist was killed in a car bombing in Malta, to offer €20,000 for information leading to the conviction of her killers.

The tweet has been both retweeted and liked more than 5000 times since.

Son accuses PM of being complicit in her death

Ms Galizia’s son Matthew, also a newshound, has since pointed the finger at a number of high profile Maltese officials.

“Joseph Muscat, Keith Schembri, Chris Cardona, Konrad Mizzi, the Attorney General and the long list of police commissioners who took no action: you are complicit. You are responsible for this,” he wrote in an emotional Facebook post.

“First [Muscat] filled his office with crooks, then he filled the police with crooks and imbeciles, then he filled the courts with crooks and incompetents. If the institutions were already working, there would be no assassination to investigate – and my brothers and I would still have a mother.

“While that clown of a Prime Minister was making statements to parliament about a journalist he spent over a decade demonising and harassing, one of the police sergeants who is supposed to be investigating her murder, Ramon Mifsud, posted on Facebook, “Everyone gets what they deserve, cow dung! Feeling happy :)… Yes, this is where we are: a mafia state.”
