A sizeable crowd gathered in front of the law courts this afternoon in a show of defiance following Monday's murder of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Delivering a short fiery speech, lawyer Andrew Borg Cardona, said the event was a call for action. "It is up to us to uphold the rule of law," Borg Cardona told the crowd, as he broke down. Peter Caruana Galizia, the journalist's husband is a partner with Borg Cardona in a legal firm.

"Everyone who once said she's going over the top, she's gone too personal. We're all to blame. We expect that everyone does everything for us. We must do things ourselves... It's in your hands now. In your hands!"

Borg Cardona pointed to the courts, behind him, saying "these are the last pillar we have because the others are no more, and they must defend us".

The event was attended by Nationalist Party leader Adrian Delia, his predecessor Simon Busuttil and many other PN officials and MPs.

At one point the crowd chanted "assassins" and the short event concluded with people singing the national anthem.
