Il-5 snin ħabs għall-mara li tajret anzjan iwassal lill-Gvern jibdel il-liġi

Il-Ministru għall-Ġustizzja Owen Bonniċi ħabbar li l-Gvern se jneħħi l-minimu ta’ ħames snin priġunerija f’każ ta’ qtil involontarju f’inċidenti tat-traffiku.

Din l-emenda qed tiġi proposta fid-dawl tas-sentenza ta’ ħames snin ħabs lill-mara ta’ 34 sena li nstabet ħatja ta’ qtil involontarju ta’ anzjan, wara li tajritu bil-karozza fl-2011 f’Ħ’Attard.

Waqt li kien qed jitkellem fil-Parlament waqt id-dibattitu dwar l-Abbozz ta’ Liġi li jemenda l-liġi tat-traffiku, Dr Bonniċi stqarr li l-Gvern se jkun qed iħalli f’idejn il-Qrati u l-Maġistrati biex jagħżlu huma x’sentenza jagħtu, skont iċ-ċirkostanzi.

Owen Bonniċi spjega li l-massimu tas-sentenza jkun ta’ 10 snin ħabs.

Ilbieraħ fil-Parlament id-Deputat Nazzjonalista Antoine Borg, issuġġerixxa li għandu jitneħħa l-minimu stabbilit bil-liġi għal min ikun tajjar lil xi ħadd u l-vittma jkun tilef ħajtu.

"Pass tajjeb li l-Partit Nazzjonalista jaqbel miegħu u jappoġġjah" - Antoine Borg

Illejla wkoll fil-Parlament, Antoine Borg saħaq li jaqbel mal-bidla fil-liġi kriminali dwar is-sentenzi f'każijiet ta' qtil involontarju. Saħaq li dan hu pass tajjeb li l-Partit Nazzjonalista jaqbel miegħu u jappoġġjah. 

Żied jgħid li filwaqt li wieħed jifhem il-weġgħat tal-qraba tal-vittmi, hemm persuni sfortunati u innoċenti, li huma wkoll ikunu spiċċaw vittmi ta' ċirkostanzi.

Dwar is-suġġett tkellem ukoll id-Deputat Laburista Charles Buhagiar, li huwa wkoll mir-Rabat, esprima l-appoġġ sħiħ tiegħu lill-Gvern għal din l-emenda.

Il-Gvern jipproponi 7 bidliet fil-liġi tat-traffiku

Il-Gvern qed jipproponi seba’ emendi prinċipali fil-liġi dwar it-traffiku.

Il-Ministru għall-Ġustizzja Owen Bonniċi semma dawn l-emendi fil-Parlament meta ressaq it-Tieni Qari dwar l-Abbozz ta’ Liġi dwar it-Traffiku.

L-iktar riforma, li l-Ministru ddeskriva “kontroversjali imma meħtieġa”, hi dik li l-gwardjani lokali li jilmħu sewwieqa taħt l-effett tal-alkoħol iwaqqfu lis-sewwieq u jseħju lill-Pulizija.  Fisser li b’din il-liġi, il-gwardjani se jkollhom rwol ta’ assistenti tal-Pulizija, iżda l-poter tagħhom se jkun biss li jwaqqfu u jżommu lis-sewwieqa.

Is-sistema ta’ punti b’rabta mal-liċenzja, se tiġi estiża għas-sewwieqa kollha, mhux biss għas-sewwieqa ġodda għal perjodu ta’ tliet snin. Il-Ministru Bonniċi spjega li min jeħel 12-il punt f’sena jkollu l-liċenzja revokata u li l-ewwel darba tingħata lura awtomatikament. Ir-raba’ darba, il-liċenzja tingħata lura biss fuq ordni tal-Qorti.

Il-Ministru ċċara kif mhux kull reat iwassal għat-teħid tal-punti. Ta eżempju bejn reat bħal tipparkja fuq il-linji sofor u ma tilbisx is-seat belt u li tibqa’ għaddej mit-traffic lights ħomor jew minn fuq stop sign.  Kull sena, teħles mill-punti li tkun akkwistajt is-sena ta’ qabel. 

Se jkun disponibbli wkoll kors mill-Awtorità tat-Trasport, li permezz tiegħu wieħed ikun jista' jeħles mill-punti. Il-kors jista' jsir biss darba f'sentejn, fejn jingħataw pariri dwar sewqan aħjar u anger management.

Emenda oħra hi li se jogħlew il-multi u anki possibilità li tiġi sospiża l-liċenzja, għal dawk li jsuqu bla liċenzja jew b’numri tar-reġistrazzjoni foloz.

Il-multi se jogħlew ukoll għal dawk li jsuqu taħt l-influwenza tax-xorb u d-droga. Spjega li l-Qorti tista’ tqiegħed lil ħati taħt ordni ta’ probation u tordnalu jattendi programm ta’ rijabilitazzjoni a spejjeż tiegħu u ordni ta’ servizz fil-komunità.

Se tiddaħħal ukoll sistema ġdida ta’ limiti ta’ alkoħol permessibbli fis-sewqan, li hi iktar viċin tal-medja tal-istandards Ewropej. Filwaqt li ddeskriva din is-sistema f’Malta bħala l-iktar waħda laxka fl-Ewropa kollha, il-Ministru spjega li se jkun hemm limiti differenti għas-sewwieqa ordinarji u dawk li jsuqu t-taxis u x-xufiera tal-vannijiet tal-iskola. 

Archbishop says seminarians can leave if they don't agree with Pope Francis

Archbishop Charles Scicluna has confirmed to the National Catholic Register that he told Malta's seminarians earlier this month that if any of them do not agree with Pope Francis, “the seminary gate is open,” implying they are free to leave, Edward Pentin reported.  

Archbishop Charles Scicluna’s remarks are the latest in what Church sources in Malta say is a heavy-handed crackdown on any ecclesiastic unwilling to subscribe to the Maltese bishops’ interpretation of the apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia — an interpretation the bishops say is identical to the Holy Father’s.

Last month, Archbishop Scicluna and Bishop Mario Grech of Gozo — the episcopate’s only two bishops —  released "Criteria" on interpreting Chapter 8 of the Pope’s apostolic exhortation on the family in which they appeared to assert the primacy of conscience over the objective moral truth.

The guidelines allowed some remarried divorcees to receive Holy Communion after a period of discernment, with an informed and enlightened conscience, and if they are “at peace with God.”

Their interpretation caused an international outcry among theologians, canonists and others who argued that it contradicted previous papal teaching, as well as breached canon law and the catechism. Archbishop Scicluna has defended the guidelines, saying they “adhered to Amoris Laetitia” and also “followed the interpretation that the Pope approved.”

Since the criteria were published January 13, a number of clergy sources in Malta have contacted the National Catholic Register alleging the bishops won't tolerate any clergy having a different interpretation of Amoris Laetitia than the one presented in the Criteria among the clergy. 

According to the sources, three priests are allegedly intimidating anyone who does not agree with the Criteria. The three had been opponents of the previous bishop, Archbishop Paul Cremona, but have now become the present bishops’ allies. One of them reputedly attacks any priest who shares critical stories on the Internet.

“This group of priests, with a few others, have been hogging the conversation for decades,” said a Maltese priest on condition of anonymity. “No one else seems to be allowed to contribute to the debate and they have done untold damage to bridge-building since they brook no opposition.”

He said they “fall on any dissent like a ton of bricks” and “no other priests are given any opportunity to contribute to the conversation” except for priests who are “like-minded.”

When he was appointed Archbishop of Malta in 2015, many of the island nation’s clergy were initially hopeful that Archbishop Scicluna would reset the theological and pastoral agenda, but now feel these priests have “hijacked” the local Church completely.

“There is a lot of discontent in the rank-and-file clergy, for they see that after holding so much promise, Scicluna's episcopacy has become one of bullying and betrayal,” the priest said. 

At a meeting with Malta’s priests on February 14, Archbishop Scicluna appealed for understanding, saying he had no choice in co-signing the guidelines. According to sources present, he said in conscience he could not go against the wishes of the Pope. He admitted it was a mistake not to consult the nation’s clergy on the Criteria before they were released, alluding to the fact that they wanted to be the first Bishops’ Conference to do so.

However, he also expressed “shock” at the fact that the C9 felt they had to pledge their allegiance of full support for the Pope. He asserted that to be Catholic, one is with the Pope. He also criticized the fact that people are questioning the Pope’s mercy. Such criticism came to a head earlier this month when 200 posters critical of what they viewed as unmerciful actions of the Holy Father appeared across Rome.

The archbishop also gave the impression that accompaniment of remarried divorcees in their discernment should take place over a significant number of sessions, and considered ten sessions too few. He “totally excluded” giving such permission to receive the Sacraments after one meeting, or after a brief confession, for instance before a funeral.

Archbishop Scicluna declined to comment on the contents of his meeting with priests.

The Maltese prelate, formerly the Vatican’s chief prosecutor who was well respected for his handling of clerical sex abuse cases during the pontificate of Benedict XVI, said in relation to Communion for remarried divorcees that for some people it is impossible to live chastely as brother and sister (to live in sexual continence was a requirement, based on Sacred Scripture and Tradition, clearly stipulated by Pope St John Paul II in his apostolic exhortation Familiaris Consortio). However, he stressed that the reference is to human impossibility and does not exclude that grace might come into action, assisting these people.

As well as the alleged intimidation, some of Malta’s clergy are also concerned that the country is currently without an apostolic nuncio. Archbishop Mario Cassari, 73, has been unable to work due to prolonged ill health. Although a Head of Mission is acting in his place, if a priest were to clash with his bishop, or be harassed by him, the clergy feel “totally isolated” in the absence of a nuncio.

Jitlob reviżjoni fil-liġi wara li mara ntbagħtet 5 snin għax tajret raġel

Id-Deputat Nazzjonalista Antoine Borg ssuġġerixxa li għandu jitneħħa l-minimu stabbilit bil-liġi ta’ ħames snin priġunerija għal min ikun tajjar lil xi ħadd u l-vittma jkun tilef ħajtu.

Huwa kien qed jitkellem fl-aġġornament tal-Parlament b’rabta mal-każ tal-mara ta’ 34 sena, li fil-jiem li għaddew il-Qorti bagħtitha ħames snin ħabs, wara li sabitha ħatja ta’ qtil involontarju ta’ anzjan, wara li tajritu bil-karozza fl-2011 fi Triq l-Imdina, Ħ'Attard.

Antoine Borg innota li l-każ kien ilu sitt snin li seħħ. Huwa saħaq li f’dan iż-żmien huwa twil tant li jibdel ħajja ta’ bniedem.

Saħaq li d-dewmien f’dan il-każ ikkawża arrest psikoloġiku fuq il-mara, fuq bintha u l-ġenituri tagħha.

B’rabta mas-suġġeriment tiegħu, Borg qal li wieħed irid iżomm f’moħħu l-kondotta tal-persuna.

B’referenza għal każ imsemmi qal wieħed irid jikkonsidra kollox “għax altru jkollok persuna li għandha kondotta nadifa u qatt ma kien jgħaddilha minn moħħha li jkollha inċident sfortunat, li jwassal għal qtil u altru jkollok persuna titkessaħ minn ċkunitha, tieħu l-karozza tal-ġeniturit agħha, issuq traskurat u tikkawża mewt.”

Id-Deputat Nazzjonalista spjega li d-diskressjoni tal-Qorti għal sentenza sospiża hija dwar sentenzi li ma jaqbżux l-erba’ snin.

Staqsa jekk tistax titwessa’ din id-diskrezzjoni għal sentenzi sospiżi għal ħames snin.

Fl-istess ħin Antoine Borg fakkar li għal kull kriminal hemm vittma u wara kull kriminal u vittma hemm familja.

Saħaq li min għandu tort u min hu kriminal, għandu jħallas ta’ għemillu u tenna biex ikun hawn qafas legali li jaħseb għal dan.

Żied jgħid li għandu jkun hawn liġijiet li jassiguraw ġustizzja vera, ibbażat fuq is-solidarjetà u fuq id-dinjità tal-persuna.

'I’m not going to let the minister of censorship, censor me' – Jason Azzopardi

Minister of Justice Owen Bonnici this evening asked Shadow Minister of Justice Jason Azzopardi to withdraw a comment he made last night with reference to the proposed media defamation bill, to which Azzopardi replied "I'm not going to let the minister of censorship, censor me". 

The plea to withdraw the statement was made in reference to a comment which the Shadow Minsiter of Justice passed, stating that if the proposed Media Defamation Bill goes through, then whoever comments on the Internet has to register with the government. This the minister said, was not correct. Dr Bonnici said that Dr Azzopardi was referring to Clause 19. The clause made it obligatory for editors of news sites to register their names with the government. 

Shadow Minister for Justice yesterday slammed the Bill, proposing it as a threat to the freedom of journalistic expression, he likened the Media Defamation Bill to similar legislation in Banglasdesh, Iran and Russia.

The minister's statement stirred both sides, with off mike comments being made by members from both sides of the House.

710 people died of cancer between January and September; cancer plan to be published in March

710 patients died of cancer last year between January and September, Health Minister Chris Feane said in Parliament this evening.

403 of these patients were men he said, while one of the patients was under 15-years-old. Lung cancer was the most common cancer form in men, while breast cancer the most common in women. The most common age group affected are those aged between 65 and 74 years old.

The minister was responding to a Parliamentary question posed by PL MP Anthony Agius Decelis.

PN Whip David Agius followed up this question, and asked about cancer prevention measures.

He said that soon, government will put forward a national cancer plan for public consultation, that will cover the next five years.  "Around a third of cancer is preventable,"  he said, adding that "one of the biggest causes for lung cancer is smoking, and passive smoking. As you know, this year we passed a legal notice that states that one cannot smoke in a car with children."

He also said that excessive alcohol consumption and obesity can lead to cancer.

He spoke of the importance of realising one has cancer earlier on, as the earlier it is caught generally means a higher chance of a cure. This, he said, is where screening comes in.

PL Whip Godfrey Farrugia asked what new kinds of care for cancer will be made available this year.

"In the first weeks of March we will announce the cancer plan for the next five years. This means that measures for prevention and care will not be ad-hoc, and will form part of a comprehensive plan.

He spoke of measures included in the budgetary estimates, and spoke of a vote which passed regarding €3 million for new cancer medication.

He also spoke about the creation of sibling groups when it comes to children suffering with cancer, where siblings would be included in the patient's care treatment plan. He also spoke of a clinical trials unit, where patients would be able to benefit from the newest medicines on the market.

"We will also create a cancer research platform where we can use our experience and unite with foreign centers to increase research and apply results of local research."

PL MP Anthony Agius Decelis asked about environment pollution and respiratory problems. Mr Fearne said that studies on the Marsa power station had occurred in the past, and the incidence rate of cancer in the vicinity when the plant was open was conducted. Through this study, he said, "in the majority of cancers there was no difference between one who stays in Mosta or right next to the Marsa station, however in cases of lung cancer there was a direct correlation with regards to the distance the person resides from the power station."

He reiterated that the Marsa station has stopped operations.

PL Whip Godfrey Farrugia asked him about the new EU approved funds for the Paola hub.

The Paola Primary Health Care Southern Regional Hub', aims at providing and supporting a number of cohesive primary health facilities, all under one roof, thus providing a 'one-stop-shop ' health care provision for the Southern region, a statement he released read.

 The centre, he said, will have a car park of around 250 cars, "so residents will not be inconvenienced through the new services the regional centre will create."

Il-Parlament imħasseb dwar l-attentati bil-bombi

Il-Ministru tal-Intern Carmelo Abela qal li għalkemm l-investigazzjonijiet dwar il-bomba li splodiet f’karrozza fl-Imsida, xtaq juri l-għadab u t-tħassib tiegħu għal dan it-tieni każ tax-xorta tiegħu din is-sena. Huwa wera l-fiduċjs tiegħu fil-korp tal-pulizija u qal li din il-kwistjoni se titressaq fil-kabinett għada biex il-pajjiż jara kif jista’ jagħti aktar riżorsi lill-pulizija. Qal li dawn il-każijiet iqajmu tħassib fost il-pubbliku dwar is-sigurtà ta’ l-individwu u dan mhux sew. 

“Kummissarju moħħu biex jipproteġi lill-gvern mhux lill-pubbliku” – Simon Busuttil

Il-Kap ta’ l-Oppożizzjoni Simon Busuttil qal li diġà huwa kundannabbli li jkun hemm dawn l-attentati minn kriminalità organizzata imma aktar u aktar li jweġġgħu l-innoċenti. Qal li din tissottolineja kriżi kbira ta’ fiduċja fil-pulizija għax jidher li l-Kummissarju aktar moħħu biex jipproteġi lill-gvern milli lill-pubbliku. In-nies inkwetati, wissa Dr Busuttil u l-gvern jidher li jew ma jistgħax jew ma jafx kif ikampa ma din is-sitwazzjoni. Dr Busuttil reġa tenna l-proposta li l-kummissarju tal-pulizija jinħatar b’vot ta’ żewġ terzi tal-kamra. Qal li wasal ukoll iż-żmien ta’ twaqqif ta’ kumitat parlamentari għal skrutinju tal-kamra.

Dr Beppe Fenech Adami staqsa x’passi ittieħdu minn mindu bdew dawn l-attakki biex il-korp jimtela’ b’nies kompetenti flok il-kważi 400 membru li ħalla l-korp. Dr Jason Azzopardi staqsa ma liema tip ta’ kriminialita organizzata kienet assoċjata din l-attivita. Dr Mario deMarco qal li l-poplu qed jistenna lill-gvern jieħu azzjoni għax ħadd għadu ma tressaq fuq lanqas wieħed minn dawn il-każijiet.

“Il-gvern mhux se jħalli lil dawn il-kriminali jagħlqu l-kontijiet għas-spejjeż tal-innoċenti” – Il-Prim Ministru Muscat

Il-Prim Mnistru Joseph Muscat qal li s-sitwazzjoni mhix normali u l-gvern qed jittrattha bħala tali. Qal li għalkemm kien hemm kummenti pertinenti, Dr Muscat qal li l-Oppożizzjoni qed tipprova tippolitiċizza sitwazzjoni fejn il-pulizija u l-forzi ta’ l-ordni qed jagħmlu l-almu tagħhom f’dan il-każ. Qal li sitwazzjonijiet bħal dawn iridu jiġu limitati u huwa ċar li dawn huma kriminali organizzati. Dr Muscat qal li l-gvern mhux se jħalli lil dawn il-kriminali jagħlqu l-kontijiet għas-spejjeż ta’ l-innoċenti.  

Il-Ministru Abela li agħlaq id-dibattitu qal li d-dover tal-gvern huwa li jagħti lill-korp l-għodda biex jaħdem u huwa għalhekk li qed tkun diskussa r-riforma tal-pulizija fil-parlament. Qal li l-l-gvern għandu fiduċja sħiħa fl-istituzzjonijiet. Huwa qal li l-Korp għandu rekord tajjeb fl-investigazzjoninjiet ta’ importanza u dan tixhdu l-istatistika. Huwa qal li l-aspett ta’ skrutinju parlamentari tal-korp tal-pulizija qiegħed inkluż taħt ċerti aspetti. Qal li dettalji ta' investigazzjonjijet mhux prudenti li jingħataw iżda l-pulizija qed jingħataw mezzi addizzjonali biex ikunu jistgħu jleħħqu mar-riżorsi tal-kriminali.

Tipposponi jew taġġorna - dilemma bejn il-gvern u l-oppożizzjoni

Il-kummitat għall-Kontijiet pubbliċi ma iltaqgħax kif kien ippjanat, biex jiddiskuti rapport ta' l-Awditur Ġenerali dwar ir-rwol tat-tabib fil-qasam tal-kura primarja.

Iċ-Cerman tal-kummitat Tonio Fenech ilmenta ma l-Ispeaker li għalkemm il-kummitat kien imsejjaħ għal filgħaxija, il-whip tal-gvern kien żamm ild-deputati tal-gvern fil-Kamra tar-Rappreżentanti minħabba l-istqarrija ministerjali. is-Sur fenech qal li dan ma kienx sew partikolarment meta kien hemm mistiedna persuni minn barra l-parlament biex jagħtu l-fehma esperta tagħhom. Huwa talab li dan l-aġir ma jibqax isir. Qal ukoll li rapport li l-ministru tas-Saħħa kellu jissottometti, baqa ma wasalx. 

Il-whip tal-gvern Godfrey Farrugia qal li kien minnu li ta' struzzjonijiet biex il-membri jibqgħu fil-kamra u qal li ċ-Ċerman tal-kumitat seta ppospona bi ftit ħin flok aġġorna. Il-whip ta' l-Oppożizzjoni David Agius irribatta li l-gvern irid jiddeċiedi jekk jipposponix dejjem jew jaġġornax dejjem meta s-seduti tal-kumitati jittardjaw. 

L-ispeaker Anġlu Farrugia talab lill-membri jaħdmu aktar id f'id.

"Hija inaċċettabbli li Keith Schembri tani ittra fit-triq" - Werner Langen

Iċ-Chairman tal-Kumitat Pana Werner Langen qal li huwa inaċċettali li ċ-Chief of Staff tal-Prim Ministru Keith Schembri ma laqax l-istedina tal-Kumitat u tah l-adits tal-Kumpanija li għandu fil-Panama xħin iltaqa' miegħu fit-triq.

F’konferenza tal-aħbarijiet Werner wera ddiżappunt tiegħu għall-aġir ta' Schembri u għall-kumment tiegħu li għandu dubji fil-mandat tal-Kumitat.

Saħaq li  li jsibha diffiċli li kieku fil-Gvern Ġermaniż ikun hemm nies imċappsin bl-iskandlu tal-Panama u sa sena wara jibqgħu hemm mingħajr ma jsir xejn.

Qal li minkejja li l-kumpanija ta' Konrad Mizzi tidher li hija marbuta ma' ħasil ta' flus, m’għandhomx prova li kien hemm xi korruzzjoni fil-kumpanija miftuħa fil-Panama. Spjega li għadhom ma waslux għall-konklużjonijiet tagħhom, dan hekk kif għadhom iridu jagħtu ħarsa aktar fil-fond tad-dokumenti tal-Kumpaniji fil-Panama.

Żied jgħid li Konrad Mizzi dejjem saħaq li l-kumpanija fetaħha għar-raġunijiet familjari. 

Werner qal li huwa ċar li s-sistema tat-taxxa f’Malta trid tkun aktar trasparenti.

Żied jgħid li f’laqgħa li kellu mal-Minsitru tal-Finanzi, Edward Scicluna, wera l-koperazzoni tiegħu fil-qasam tat-taxxa u l-ħasil tal-flus.

Langen qal li l-Kumitat Pana jrid jifhem dak li seħħ fil-Panama Papers u x’jistgħu jitgħallmu minn din l-esperjenza.

Saħaq  li l-Panama Papers jaffettwaw lil kull ċittadin Ewropew u qal li din tista’ tkun solvuta biss jekk isir sforz kollettiv.

Il-Membru Parlamentari f’isem il-Partit tas-Soċjalisti u Demokratiċi Jeppe Kofod qal li jaf li f’Malta l-affari tal-Panama Papers spiċċat ballun politiku u saħaq li mhux l-irwol tal-Kumitat Pana li jidħol fil-logħba politika.

Spjega li l-Kumitat qed jgħarrex fil-ħasil tal-flus fosthom fl-iskandlu tal-Panama Papers, l-evazzjoni tat-taxxa u l-ħasil tal-flus.

Saħaq li s-sistema tat-taxxa f'Malta trid tiġi inestigata u analizata u spjega li  l-evazjoni tat-taxxa qiegħda fl-aġenda tal-Unjoni Ewropea.

Qal li l-Kumitat se jżur aktar pajjiżi fosthom anke l-Istati Uniti, Lussemburgu u l-Ingilterra. 

Min-naħa tiegħu l-MEP f'isem il-Partit tal-Ħodor, Sven Giegold qal li Manfred Galdes, l-eks kap tal-FIAU qal li li saru ftit prosekuzzjonijiet u iffriżar ta' flues minħabba transazzjonijiet suspettati. Żied jgħid li l-politiċi u l-kumpaniji privati jinsabu wisq viċin xuxlin li jxekklu milli verament jittieħdu passi.

Essendon plane crash: Five people killed on board light plane that crashed into DFO

Five people aboard a light plane that crashed into Essendon's DFO shopping centre have been killed.

Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Stephen Leane said all those on the plane, which was bound for a golfing trip on King Island, had died in the fiery crash.

The passengers are believed to be US citizens who had organised a golfing trip on one of King Island's three golf courses. It is understood that consular officials from the US embassy attended the crash scene on Tuesday morning.
Mr Leane said there had not been any fatalities on the ground after the plane had a "catastrophic engine failure" after take-off and plummeted into shops at the DFO.

Eluf jattendu għad-dimostrazzjoni tal-PN kontra l-korruzzjoni

Eluf ta’ nies inġabru quddiem Kastilja biex attendew għad-dimostrazzjoni tal-Partit Nazzjonalista bl-għan li jiddefendu l-demokrazija u l-libertà.

Il-Kap tal-Oppożizzjoni Simon Busuttil indirizza lill-folla quddiem il-Qorti fi Triq ir-Repubblika fejn fost l-oħrajn wiegħed li Gvern Nazzjonalista se jinvestiga l-każ tal-kumpaniji Maltin fil-Panama.

Busuttil ikkritika l-istituzzjonijiet tal-Gvern, fosthom il-Pulizija, talli ma investigawx l-iskandlu tal-Panama.

Hu qal li permezz tar-reġistru tal-midja l-Gvern qed jhedded il-libertà tal-espressjoni u d-demokrazija u sostna li Gvern Nazzjonalista mhux se jappoġja l-liġi tal-midja li qed tiġi proposta bħalissa fil-Parlament tant li jekk din tgħaddi hu se jneħħiha meta jiġi elett.

Hu akkuża lill-Gvern li llum qed jattakka lill-ġurnalisti u li ftit żmien ieħor għad jattakka lill-poplu.

Busuttil insista kif dan hu l-aktar Gvern korrott fl-istorja ta’ Malta u li għal dan qed ipatti l-poplu Malti u żied jgħid kif din il-protesta kienet l-ewwel pass li se jwassal biex Malta terġa ssir pajjiż demokratiku fejn il-Gvern jaħdem għan-nies.

Fost il-kelliema waqt id-dimostrazzjoni kien hemm Jeremy Gingell li tkellem li rrappreżenta ż-żgħażagħ, il-lettur tal-Università Marianne Lauri u l-ispeċjalista Alec Lapira.

Bħalissa fi Ġnien l-Għarusa tal-Mosta għaddejjin xogħlijiet fuq proġett bi spiża ta' iktar minn €100,000.

Permezz ta' dan il-proġett, il-ġnien li għal snin sħaħ tħalla f’abbandun u fi stat ta’ telqa, u kien lok għall-abbużi, se jiġi trasformat f’post ta’ rikreazzjoni għall-familja kollha.

Ix-xogħlijiet jinkludu pavimentar ġdid, bankijiet, plantersgazebo, dwal u bins, tiswija ta’ ħitan li bħalissa huma mġarrfa, żbir ta’ siġar u arbuxelli, qlugħ ta’ siġar mejta u tħawwil adattat ta’ siġar li se jieħdu post is-siġar mejta.

Se tiġi mfassla wkoll sistema ta’ irrigazzjoni u jsir restawr fuq il-ġibjun u fuq il-Victoria Lines speċjalment fejn hemm il-ġebel maqlugħ.
