Caruana Galizia family requests Magistrate Nadine Lia to recuse herself

The family of Daphne Caruana Galizia has requested the Court that Magistrate Nadine Lia does not hear the compilation of Yorgen Fenech, who is charged with being the mastermind of Caruana Galizia murder.

The Caruana Galizia family stated that Magistrate Lia, who adjourned the hearing for tomorrow, has a conflict of interest as the father of her husband, Pawlu Lia, is a legal adviser and a defence lawyer in other cases of the Prime Miinister and former Chief of Staff Keith Schembri, who the family alleges is implicated in the case.

The Magistrate was chosen by lot to hear the compilation of evidence in this case.
