Maltese police have launched an investigation into the incident.
Police sought international assistance, including the American Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
The Maltese government announced that a reward of 1 million euros will be given to those who share information that will find the murderer of Daphne Caruana Galizia.
On 4 December 2017, Malta Prime Minister Joseph Muscat announced that 10 people had been detained in connection with the assassination.
Three of the ten arrested were later charged with carrying out the bombing.
The three suspects were identified as George Degiorgio, his brother Alfred Degiorgio, and their friend Vince Muscat (who has a surname similar to Prime Minister Joseph Muscat).
Prime Minister Joseph Muscat resigned as prime minister on January 13, 2020, due to the political crisis and increasing pressure caused by the investigation in the government.

The issue began negotiating for an 18-year liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply agreement to Malta’s Electrogas power plant. agreement was signed.
According to the supply security agreement, the Malta Electrogaz plant was committed to purchase liquefied natural gas for 18 years, well above market prices.
The Maltese government has long concealed the existence of this LNG agreement from the European Commission.
Even in the parliament, he did not make any public statement about the agreement, which caused controversy.
It was at this time that Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia began publishing the results of her research.
According to Galizia, the 17 Black and Macbridge companies included in the «Panama Papers» were key in corruption, money laundering and bribery.
Galizia’s news eventually resulted in her death as a result of a bomb placed on her car.

The biggest feature of Yorgan Fenech is that he was the owner of 17 Black companies that were featured in the news of the Maltese journalist Galizia.
In his court statement, Fenech accused Chief of Staff Keith Schembri of being the mastermind behind the murder of journalist Galizia.
The second name Fenech gave is Melvin Theuma.
Theuma agreed to testify for the murder of journalist Galizia after he was granted a presidential pardon in exchange for his testimony. He attempted suicide prior to his trial but was rescued and continued to testify in one of the most sensitive cases in Maltese history.
Theuma claimed that Quilt Fenech had instructed him to contract the hitmen who allegedly planted the bomb.
He said the explosives were also supplied by brothers Adrian and Robert Agius, who became the most important criminal network after nearly a decade of mafia wars in Malta, who are suspected of having carried out numerous car bombings over the years.
The criminal network led by the Agius brothers is also important for Europe.
Businessperson Yorgan Fenech, who was arrested in connection with the death of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, gave another important name.
It turned out that 2.3 million euros were transferred from Rovshan Tamrazov’s Crowbar Holdings company, which is registered in the Virgin Islands, to the 17 Black firm of Maltese businessman Yorgen Fenech, who admitted to giving 50 thousand euros to the assassins.

The bombing of the Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia is actually an example of how such organizations ,prosecuter office and etc…darken their eyes.
Uğur Mumcu in 1993, Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in 2017.
They lost their lives searching for the truth.
Their job was journalism.
Criminal organizations, money laundering, international bribery traffic, mafia, drug and arms smuggling are actually done with the permission of those who consider themselves the «state».
