Peter Caruana Galizia, widower of anti-corruption journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, reacts during a protest and vigil marking twenty-one months since her assassination, after three men were indicted for her murder, in Valletta, Malta July 16, 2019.
Three men have been charged with the murder and are due to stand trial, but the police are continuing their investigations to establish who the real mastermind was, and the motive.
The inquiry was requested in a resolution by the parliamentary assembly of the Council of Europe in June.
The inquiry board is formed of retired judge Michael Mallia, lawyer and constitutional law expert Ian Refalo and former forensics expert Anthony Abela Medici.
The Caruana Galizia family in a statement requested a meeting with the prime minister to discuss its concerns, saying the board would be unfit for purpose if the public had reasons to doubt about its independence or impartiality.
A spokesman for the office of the prime minister said it was in touch with the family about the issue.
