Despite the impression having been given weeks ago that he would be present for cross-examination, Pierre Portelli didn’t show up in court this morning “because he wasn’t notified”. The fact that he wasn’t notified and didn’t attend didn’t stop him from making snide remarks on his Facebook page, of course. But that’s Facebook, not real [...]

Filed by regular autho Tyndareus. If you thought Pierre Portelli is going to hang up his boots… you’ve got another one coming. All the signs are there that he’s not giving up any time soon. In his ‘resignation’ letter, Portelli states: “I will continue to support your resolve to push a new way for the [...]

This could prove to be a very interesting day in court. Pierre Portelli is due for cross-examination in the case I filed against the PN last August because by his own admission he decided not to carry a brief statement in reply to wrongful reporting on NET TV. They had said at the time I [...]

Adrian Delia is facing a fresh set of allegations. This time he is accused of lying about authentic signatures of his having been falsified, effectively framing his predecessor’s sister for a crime no one has committed. They’re allegations, yes. And they’re made by his former business partner, Kris Bajada, whose credentials are, at best, dubious. [...]

Maurice Mizzi is no longer the guardian of future generations. That’s neither here nor there. Although he had an appointment letter signed by Jose Herrera that said he was, I didn’t see him guarding anything. A wealthy man with nothing better to do than inflict the excess of his time on the rest of us [...]

Intuitive reactions are uninformed and thankfully not the way people are judged for crimes they are convicted of. I respect that. Nor am I the ‘lock-him-up-and-throw-away-the-key’ sort of guy. But let’s face it. Erin Tanti admitted his guilt on a charge of murder which is punishable by up to life in prison. He also pleaded [...]

The PN's sectional committees in Mosta and Paola issued declarations that are highly critical of the headquarters of the party demanding that instead of trying to explain away the recent electoral losses, party elders should be assuming responsibility for their failures. They follow the more urgent clamour from the Gozitan party activists who went ballistic [...]

The piece is written by a regular contributor who has adopted the identity of Tyndareus and apologises to Edgar Allan Poe for the heading. Some would say that you cannot expect a snake other than to hiss and slither. That is his nature. So even though the situation is dire and most did not expect [...]
