Six months after Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was brutally killed by a car bomb just meters from her home, a group of 45 journalists representing 18 news organisations from 15 countries picked up Daphne’s work, worked over her findings, gathering documents, talking to sources — to try to get to the bottom of the many leads the formidable woman left behind.
The Daphne Project was coordinated and led by Forbidden Stories, a Paris-based organisation established specifically to continue the work of killed, imprisoned, or otherwise incapacitated journalists.
The Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) facilitated the sharing of documents and information across the participating organisations and assigned researchers and reporters to investigate the many allegations about wrongdoing among Malta’s elite.
The media outlets working on this project include : The Guardian, Reuters, Premières Lignes Télévision / France 2, The Times of Malta, Die Zeit, Le Monde, The New York Times, WDR/NDR, Tages-Anzeiger, Freelance, Journalism School, Columbia University, Direkt 36.
