Son of murdered journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, Matthew, took to social media to share an image of the reported son of George Degiorgio.
A photo of an allegedly deleted TikTok video was shared by the late journalist’s son, with the description reading:
‘I am Denzel. Son of George. The head of the local mafia. Denzel Degiorgio (@ilputzz)’. The image shared to Facebook was captioned: ‘He should be allowed to spend time with his family’.
This is of course in reference to a recent image released to social media which shows George Degiorgio at a party, despite serving a jail sentence for the assassination of the journalist back in 2017.
It was later revealed that Denzel was arrested on Sunday after leaving a Facebook comment on one of the photos of his father at the event. Denzel wrote ‘money talks’ when it was revealed that his father was allowed out of prison for a family baptism party.
He was reportedly seen entering the headquarters of the Financial Crimes Investigations Department on Sunday as he was to be interrogated.
A representative for Degiorgio insisted that everything was done legally and with all the necessary requests and authorisation from the authorities. Despite this, the photo earned the scorn and critique of many, including EP President Roberta Metsola.
