These are the leading stories in local newspapers this Tuesday.

Times of Malta leads with how British comedian and author David Walliams was paid €120,000 to host the Malta Film Awards back in January 2022. The details follow after a two-year legal battle launched by the Daphne Caruana Galizia Foundation.

In another story, the newspaper reports how the families of a couple- Christian Pandolfino and Ivor Maciejowski- said the news that one of the alleged killers, Jesper Kristiansen, would plead guilty in exchange for a 40-year prison sentence was "the first step towards closure".

The Malta Independent also gives prominence to the Kristiansen case, saying he would plead guilty to the Sliema double murder. It also cites Robert Abela saying the sovereignty of the majority must be respected when choosing the news president. 

L-Orizzont says three million tourists had visited Malta in 2023. It also carries a photo of the prime minister inaugurating the Maritime Section of the Civil Protection Department. 

In-Nazzjon quotes the story reported by Times of Malta on Monday that former minister Chris Cardona was not excluding a political return.
