(BBC) – A former anti-corruption investigator in Malta has told BBC Newsnight he fears for his life after looking into allegations made by murdered journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.
Jonathan Ferris is seeking full police protection amid concerns he could be targeted after looking into her claims against top political figures.
Caruana Galizia was killed in a car bomb near her home on 16 October. She was known for a blog in which she accused powerful figures of corruption.
Prosecutors are looking into the possibility that her murder was carried out by hitmen on the orders of someone angered by her reporting.
