>The assassins who killed Panama Papers journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia used a fatal text message sent from a boat out at sea Those are meticulous precautions, yet the government was able to make arrests in a timely manner. The three being held have prior records. This sounds like a hired hit. >Prosecutors have not released a motive for the killing. Interesting. >The slain journalist was most famous for using information in the Panama Papers leaks to allege illicit activity between the inner circle of Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and the ruling family of Azerbaijan. That might have been it.

For those curious, the Panama Papers revealed a metric shit-ton of corruption, money laundering, tax evasion, theft, etc. from thousands of officials and wealthy people worldwide including in the US.

It's a shame. She and all the others who worked on them did a great service to us all releasing the panama papers. They knew the dangers they would face and still did it. It's very admirable.

"Seven other men, all of them Maltese, were released on bail as authorities continue the investigation into those already charged, who all have previous criminal records." So you can participate in an organized assassination of a journalist, and still get bail? And according to (Reporters without borders), Malta is still at number 47... Kudos to true reporters everywhere. And thank you Daphne Caruana Galizia!

... It wasn't the SMS that killed her. The SMS set off a signal in a rewired phone attached to an explosive that was attached to her car. She was killed by a car bomb. The SMS was just an elaborate trigger for the bomb. Stupid headline.

How are journalists all over the world going at this? This sets a MASSIVE precedent on people who report on news against basically anyone.

Further legitimizing the papers...

"To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize". It would appear our hidden rulers are in the Panama Papers, and are not happy about it.

This is literally a way for the extremely rich to tell the lower classes to shut up and not dig. Class warfare at its finest, and yet the middle class in the US are busy arguing about football players and tweets. Just like the top percenters want.

It would be great if somebody setting up a cellphone-triggered bomb would get a random spam call.

I GUARANTEE you that the people arrested are fall guys who had nothing to with killing her. You don't just casually expose fraudulent actions that implicate the richest leaders of the known world. The fact that she wasn't offered protection and that global media coverage will bury this under the rug goes to show how deep this exposure goes.

*"Galizia's family has repeatedly questioned the independence of the investigation by authorities, who were often the target of her blog"* You don't fucking say.

How many others involved in these types of paper leaks have gone missing or died?

I find it kind of sad that the only time I've ever seen something Maltese related on the front page of reddit is the murder of our most popular journalist.

>Prosecutors have not released a motive for the killing. *raises hand* OOH, OOH, PICK ME!! PICK ME!! I KNOW!!

I can't imagine being a journalist right now. The potential threats on your life are very real.

I feel like the rich and the powerful who were exposed in the Panama Papers will never have any repercussions.

Rest In Peace, thank you for doing the world a great service. Your work is exemplary journalism.

Guys. Shitty article title aside, people in high places are paying to have people who expose corruption killed. I know that in of itself is a no brainer but be we need to be a little more outraged about it. Edit: a word

This is what reporting REAL NEWS gets you! They’ll give complete frauds journalistic awards and multi millions but kill any real journalists reporting on actual stories.

Maybe i watch too many movies/tv shows but if government was responsible, which imo they were, for that reason alone I kind of doubt the people that were caught and charged were actually the ones who did it.
