Serhat TUNAR -TDO- The investigation into the murder in 2017 of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, who worked on corruption allegations in Malta, was under way, with resignations in the government, and Prime Minister Joseph Muscat allegedly planning to step down.
Malta's national newspaper The Times of Malta reported on Friday (yesterday) that Prime Minister Muscat had allegedly told relatives he planned to resign, while a spokesman for the prime minister's Office left questions over the allegations unanswered.
