Official sources said on Saturday that the Prime Minister of Malta, Joseph Muscat, was expected to make a statement announcing his resignation. One of Malta's wealthiest men, Fenech, was charged in a Valletta court on Saturday with complicity to murder in the car bomb killing of anti-corruption journalist Caruana Galizia in 2017.

The probe into the murder of Caruana Galizia, a campaigning journalist who investigated and exposed corruption, has spawned a political crisis for the government of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. Fenech pleaded not guilty to the charge of complicity to murder and other charges related to the case, which included membership of a criminal gang and conspiracy to cause an explosion.
