Daphne Caruana Galizia was the journalist and blogger who exposed the Panama Papers.[1]


Caruana Galizia's posts often attracted more readers than the combined circulation of her country’s newspapers. She was described shortly before her assassination by Politico as a “one-woman WikiLeaks”. The Guardian described Her blogs as "a thorn in the side of both the establishment and underworld figures."[1]


On 1 October 2017, Caruana Galizia filed a police report to say that she had been receiving death threats.

Daphne Caruana Galizia was killed when a bomb exploded in her car, breaking the vehicle into several pieces and throwing debris into a nearby field. [1]
