Notorious brothers George and Alfred Degiorgio are being considered as the main suspects in the Daphne Caruana Galizia murder investigation, according to sources close to the investigation.

Known by their respective nicknames, ic-Ciniz and il-Fulu, the two men were among the group of 10 people arrested this morning in early morning raids in Marsa, Bugibba and Zebbug.

The Degiorgios have a criminal past and form part of a gang that used a warehouse in the Menqa area of Marsa to plan criminal activity.

Alfred Degiorgio was among three criminals found not guilty in 2015 of being involved in an armed robbery 11 years earlier at Marsa in which €42,000 were stolen. They were cleared of accusations when the presiding magistrate decreed there was lack of evidence to convict them.

Heavily armed police officers and soldiers raided a number of warehouses in the area below the Marsa power station on Monday morning. An eyewitness who works in the area told MaltaToday that two men were seen running before being apprehended by the police.

Sources close to the investigation said the police confiscated weapons and other material that could link the arrested men to Caruana Galizia's murder.

The Marsa area raided this morning remained closed off this evening as police officers and forensic experts were still on site.
