The top stories in Malta's newspapers

Good morning.

The following are the top stories in Malta's newspapers.

Most of the newspapers lead with the European Parliament's debate on the rule of law in Malta, and reactions to it.

Times of Malta and l-orizzont lead with the comments by Frans Timmermans, European Commission vice president, who urged MEPs not to rush to judgement on the Daphne Caruana Galizia murder and not to make this a partisan political issue.

MaltaToday also observes that the European Commission, through Mr Timmermans, had tempered MEPs' criticism of the rule of law in Malta.   

In-Nazzjon focuses on a press conference by PN leader Adrian Delia after the EP debate. He said that Malta's name needed to be protected more than ever before. 

The Malta Independent leads with comments by Peter Caruana Galizia at the opening of a press room named after his wife Daphne Caruana Galizia at the European Parliament. He said his wife was brave, but that had little value without a sense of justice and outrage.

It also says that 'only' seven of 15 Nationalist MPs had denied a report that they were willing to depose Adrian Delia.

Times of Malta in its second story says the presence of North Korean workers in places like Malta was likely endorsed by the North Korean regime, according to Yang Mujin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul, South Korea.

Prof. Mujin was reacting to findings by KCIJ-Newstapa, partners of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, that a North Korean company linked to the country’s former leader Kim Jong-il had set up shop in Malta.
