The government would show its accountability for Daphne Caruana Galizia's death by finding whoever ordered her assassination, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said on Thursday.

The journalist was killed by a car bomb on October 16.

Three Slovak officials announced their resignations on Wednesday after a Slovak journalist who was investigating government corruption was found murdered on Sunday.

Asked by Times of Malta how he could justify the lack of accountability by the Maltese government, Dr Muscat said the government had been accountable by finding Caruana Galizia's alleged killers.

“We will let the courts go about their business now.”

When it was pointed out that the Slovak culture minister resigned as a moral stand because the murder happened under his watch, Dr Muscat countered that the government would shoulder responsibility by finding whoever ordered Ms Caruana Galizia’s assassination.

Three 'unemployed' men stand accused of murdering the journalist.
