For the first time since the start of the trial, one of the three men accused of the murder of the Maltese anti-corruption journalist, Daphne Caruana Galizia, found dead in October 2017 after a car bomb attack, pleaded guilty on Tuesday.
“Vincent Muscat, what do you plead with regard to the charges? Asked the clerk of the Valletta court. “Guilty,” replied the accused.
The three defendants, brothers Alfred Degiorgio and George Degiorgio, and Vincent Muscat, all in their fifties, were arrested on December 4, 2017.
