First Maltese case of media freedom violation reported to Council of Europe Platform for the Protection of Journalism, by European Federation of Journalists: Chris Cardona freezing my bank accounts
The European Federation of Journalists has reported on the use by Malta’s Minister of the Economy of precautionary warrants to freeze my bank accounts.
The EFJ is Europe’s largest organisation of journalists, with 71 associations representing 320,000 journalists in 43 countries.
The federation’s general secretary, Ricardo Gutiérrez, said today: “Daphne Caruana Galizia is facing blatant harassment and intimidation. The financial consequence of the legal action against her is totally disproportionate”.
The European Federation of Journalists will submit the case to the Council of Europe Platform for the Protection of Journalism, saying that it will be the first Maltese case of violation of media freedom reported on the Platform.
