In this episode Naomi Fowler speaks with Paul Caruana Galizia, one of the sons of Malta’s incredible investigative journalist and anti-corruption champion Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was assassinated in 2017. Paul Caruana Galizia discusses his mother’s legacy, the capture of Malta through an aggressive, over-sized finance sector with financial secrecy at its heart, and his hopes for the future.
“You need to be very strong. To do the job that she did you really have to be your own person. You couldn’t be the kind of person who worries what people might think of you, And you really have to say, no, I’m not going to adapt, I’m not going to fall into that mould. I’m going to break it and keep breaking.”
~ Paul Caruana Galizia
