Event

A civil society group has called for another protest in Valletta on Sunday, December 1, to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. Participants plan to gather at 16:00 (local time) in front of Parliament.

A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are expected near the protest site. Further protests are possible in the coming days.

Context

Several thousand people demonstrated in Valletta on November 26, demanding political change and the resignation of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and other senior government officials for their handling of the assassination of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. Galizia was murdered in October 2017 due to her reporting on government corruption in Malta. A police investigation into her murder has led to the resignation of several government officials as of November 26 and prompted widespread protests.

Advice

Individuals in Malta, particularly in Valletta, are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests and demonstrations, prepare for transportation disruptions around protest sites, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
