WATCH: Can developments in Caruana Galizia and Chircop cases lead to the solving of other homicides?

Criminology professor Saviour Formosa has expressed his hope that yesterday’s developments in the murder cases of Daphne Caruana Galizia and Dr Carmel Chircop, may lead to the solving of other homicides which took place over the last few years.

He said that for many years there has been a trend of murders being carried out with the use of bombs, which reflect the way criminal gangs act when they join forces and turn against each other every so often.

He expressed his belief that the time has come for all those who have information about these old unsolved cases to come forward so that they can be finally closed.

During an interview on TVAM, Prof Formosa explained what procedures are involved for a murder suspect to be arraigned in Court.

He said that the Police do not sleep on these cases, however the information continues to be collected until there is enough evidence for the suspects to be arraigned. He said this process sometimes takes many years, or until there is a new development in the case, as has happened with the confession by Vince Muscat.
