    Hey! Beautiful woman from buzzfeed, or how we call you in Malta " The buzzfeed girl". We need your help, Malta is not going to be like what you described in the coming years. Corruption is ruling our country and our world will fall apart. Today one of our TOP journalists (by Top I mean, ranked as one of the best 28 journalists in the world by POLITICO, Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was also took part in revealing the Panama Papers Scandal) was killed in a cold blooded murder. Corrupt police officials have taken over our country. Bad men are ruling Malta and it has become impossible to trust any political party except, maybe our PM. Still I'm not sure. Todays Murder on our journalist was an attack on freedom of speech, an attack on democracy and an attack an all Maltese Citizens. Please shed light to the world! As it does not have the attention it needs! And I think the murder will, as usual here in Malta, remain a Mystery. Please bring justice to our small island. #justice
