The Journalist who exposed Panama Paper leaks, killed in car car bomb blast

The journalist who led the Panama Papers investigation into corruption in Malta was killed on Monday in a car bomb near her home.

The Guardian reported that Daphne Caruana Galizia died on Monday afternoon when her car, a Peugeot 108, was destroyed by a powerful explosive device which blew the vehicle into several pieces and threw the debris into a nearby field.

Her revelation on Panama Paper brought many politicians and corporate industries under the agency’s investigative scanner. Her most recent revelations pointed the finger at Malta’s prime minister, Joseph Muscat, and two of his closest aides, connecting offshore companies linked to the three men with the sale of Maltese passports and payments from the government of Azerbaijan.

Her personal blog had more reach than any national daily. Recently, Caruana Galizia was described by the Politico website as a “one-woman WikiLeaks”.

She has been always like a thorn for the establishment and the people involved in underworld crimes.

However, president of Malta appealed to his countrymen to maintain peace in the country. He said, he is shocked and having no words to describe grief. Whereas Prime minister of Malta Muscat condemn the attack and assured for FBI investigation in the case.

No group or individual so far has come forward to claim responsibility for the attack.
