Will Maltese PM’s resignation stem anger over corruption? | Inside Story

Joseph Muscat steps down over murder of investigative journalist

After two years of intense pressure, Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat is resigning over the murder of an investigative journalist.
A car bomb killed Daphne Caruana Galizia in 2017, not long after she exposed alleged corruption involving government ministers and the business elite.
Yorgen Fenech, one of Malta’s richest men with close links with the government, was charged last week with complicity in the murder.
Joseph Muscat’s resignation follow those of his chief of staff and tourism minister, who’ve been implicated in the scandal.
Will this be enough to stem public anger on the case?
And will those responsible for Caruana Galizia’s death face justice?
