Serhat TUNAR -TDO- The warning to Malta from the European Union about the scandal of murdered journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia has come.
A delegation to the European Parliament, which is on a two-day visit to Malta, said Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat should urgently contradict the mandate.
Addressing reporters ' questions after meeting with Justice Secretary Owen Bonnici and Prime Minister Muscat, Sophie in't Veld, head of the European Parliament delegation, said her concerns had not been addressed.
