3 November 2017
We, Former Parliamentarians of the Members’ States of the Council of Europe and of the European Parliament meeting in Malta to discuss together about the Future of Europe,
− EXPRESS, before starting the proceedings, our profound sorrow and great indignation with regard to the criminal act which cut short the life of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia;
− CONDEMN the foul crime which has greatly moved all the people of Europe: not only because it extinguished a young life, but also because – in an EU Member State – such an atrocious infringement of the rights of a free press and freedom of thought, enshrined in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU and the European Convention on Human Rights, could have been committed, in the form of terrorism;
− SUPPORT the urgent call by the European Parliament with a view to ensuring that the government and all the authorities of the Republic of Malta make every effort to back the international investigation and bring the perpetrators and sponsors of this assassination to justice, in order to remove the dishonourable shadows that surround it;
− EXPRESS their condolences to the family of the victim and gather together in silence in memory of Daphne and her courageous life.
