My most profound condolences to Peter, Daphne’s sons, her parents, sisters and her numerous friends.

They have lost a treasured person but nobody can erase their great memories of a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend.

We, the people, have little left to treasure or believe in. The criminals are on the rise and the enemies of democracy are celebrating.

What we need to find is not who killed her but what led to this barbaric act. All those now crying and shouting out that freedom of expression has been dealt a severe blow should look back objectively at all that was thrown at Daphne Caruana Galizia before today’s murder. She was told to shut up over and over; she was threatened with all sorts of things.

Now she has been silenced. And as a result so has the pursuit of truth.

A senseless murder of our most effective, intelligent, courageous journalist.

We are now all silenced.
