  • Maltese authorities said a man arrested in a money-laundering case claims to have information identifying the mastermind behind the assassination of Caruana Galizia

The suspect has "indicated they were in possession of evidence to corroborate their information", Muscat said.

A police source with direct knowledge of the matter said the arrest was made on Thursday as part of a separate investigation.

Mr Muscat made the surprise offer after authorities on Thursday arrested someone who claimed to know who ordered the deadly 2017 vehicle bombing of the renowned blogger and journalist.

Maltese authorities said a man arrested in a money-laundering case claims to have information identifying the mastermind behind the assassination of Caruana Galizia.

The Times of Malta newspaper reported on Tuesday that the government was considering a pardon if the suspected middleman can lead investigators to the mastermind behind the killing.

His arrest is the latest development in the case.

Caruana Galizia, a well-known investigative journalist who wrote an anti-corruption blog, was killed by a vehicle bomb near the Maltese capital Valletta in October 2017 - a murder that shocked Europe and raised questions about the rule of law on the Mediterranean island.

The 53-year-old Caruana Galizia, known as a "one-woman WikiLeaks", was killed in a vehicle bomb outside her Bidnija home on October 16, 2017.

The highly regarded journalist was known for going toe-to-toe with some of the country's most popular political figures, accusing them of corruption and undermining the democratic institutions of the small European Union nation.

In September a public inquiry was ordered into Daphne Caruana Galizia's murder, in response to recommendations made in a report by the Council of Europe - a non-EU human rights body with 47 member states. Her reporting included examining Malta content in the leaked documents in the Panama Papers financial scandal.
