Government gives in and allows migrants penned at sea to come ashore. Hostage situation ended.

2020-06-06T21:53:40+02:00Sat, 6th Jun '20, 21:42|

A statement announced this evening the Maltese government was not willing to endanger the lives of crew members and Maltese employees working with migrants it ordered imprisoned outside Malta’s territorial waters. For this reason, Robert Abela’s government has climbed down from its insistence that more than 400 migrants would not be allowed to land on [...]

Sent in by someone known to me. However odd is the decision by the US Attorney’s request to the New York federal court to drop the case against Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad on five counts for money laundering, etc., there are no reasons why investigations should be abandoned in Malta against him and other perpetrators, [...]

If they can’t, how do they expect us to?

2020-06-06T12:10:17+02:00Sat, 6th Jun '20, 12:10|

Look at this. Robert Abela did not understand what the white dot on the floor stands for. It's so you don't stay within two metres of the Speaker you dimwit. Have you heard of social distancing? And this photo, that reassures us the opposition is keeping the government in constant check. Have you guys thought [...]

The lawyer representing Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad in his trial for bank fraud and for busting sanctions against his native Iran told Bloomberg this morning “he and his client aren’t sure why the government brought the ‘extraordinary motion’ to drop the case.” Reid Weingarten Photo: Getty Reid Weingarten said “we hope they finally saw [...]

Clouding murky waters

When she was ruling on il-Koħħu’s request for bail, the trial judge of Daphne’s alleged assassins remarked that “it is evident that the criminal network involved (in Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murder) has not been completely restrained and there are still people involved in commissioning the crime that have not yet been called to give account [...]

GUEST POST: The weakling crook is holed up

2020-06-05T15:22:10+02:00Fri, 5th Jun '20, 15:19|

Practically nothing has changed since 12 January 2020. Joseph Muscat has lost his Castille office to his protégé Robert Abela. He resigned in shame as the most corrupt person for 2019. There really was no contest and Chris Fearne never had a chance. Robert Abela was Joseph’s anointed one. He was the chosen one for [...]

Is there another middleman?

2020-06-04T13:55:30+02:00Thu, 4th Jun '20, 13:55|

The possible involvement of Chris Cardona in the killing of Daphne Caruana Galizia came to the public’s attention yet again after answers given by the state’s witness Melvyn Theuma to questions made to him in court. Jason Azzopardi, who is in court representing parte civile the family of Daphne Caruana Galizia, asked Melvyn Theuma on [...]

Avvenire: Easter Massacre Inquiry “hasty”, “contradictory”, “misdirecting”

2020-06-04T13:07:55+02:00Thu, 4th Jun '20, 13:06|

Italian newspaper Avvenire has criticised the inquiry by Magistrate Joe Mifsud into the Easter Massacre when 12 people died at sea days after they reported they were stranded insight Malta’s search and rescue area. The newspaper, in a report by Nello Scavo, is also critical of Italian authorities that refused to provide details that could [...]

GUEST POST: Who killed Daphne?

2020-06-03T12:08:48+02:00Wed, 3rd Jun '20, 16:00|

Who killed Daphne Caruana Galizia? We’ve been asking this question since her brutal assassination on the 16th October 2017. We’ve been asking this question since Joseph Muscat, King of Organised Crime and Corruption, nefariously promised to ‘leave no stone unturned’. We’ve been asking this question while all the evidence has continually been pointing at Castille. [...]

GUEST POST: Of Politics and Religion – the Treaty of Lisbon

2020-06-03T10:38:59+02:00Wed, 3rd Jun '20, 15:00|

The so called 2016 “equality bills”, being debated in Parliament, are in conflict with the European Union Treaty of Lisbon. In a 2016 position paper, cited by Tonio Borg in this Times of Malta article, the Church expresses concern that the transcribing of this EU Directive “will apparently be used by the Maltese government to [...]

Crossing a red light (4): Why harm an opposition MP?

2020-06-03T21:05:34+02:00Wed, 3rd Jun '20, 14:00|

This is the fourth part of a series of articles about the accusations Labour propagandist Karl Stagno Navarra is throwing at PN MP Karol Aquilina. Start the series here. The awesomely lissome Ian Abdilla wants to harm Karol Aquilina because Karol Aquilina is an Opposition MP. A proper one. He takes his duties as a [...]

Inquiry “expert” is magistrate’s personal lawyer

2020-06-03T15:03:13+02:00Wed, 3rd Jun '20, 13:42|

The magisterial inquiry into the death of 12 people at sea after their dinghy was allowed to drift for several days before a rescue operation in Malta’s search and rescue area is mired in further controversy. The Shift News reported this morning that Magistrate Joe Mifsud provided Robert Abela with copies of all the evidence [...]

Joseph, the small god of Nadur

2020-06-03T12:52:49+02:00Wed, 3rd Jun '20, 12:06|

There’s a tribe in Vanuatu that worships Philip Mountbatten-Windsor, the Duke of Edinburgh. It’s what anthropologists call a cargo cult. The islanders' ancient legends were folded into a vague understanding of royal protocol they saw during royal visits to the archipelago in the 1950s and 1970s, then still the New Hebrides. The local chief, who [...]

Crossing a red light (2): What happened since then

2020-06-03T10:21:52+02:00Wed, 3rd Jun '20, 10:00|

This post continues from this earlier post that described an innocuous traffic incident when no one was harmed and nothing was damaged a year ago. Read that post first. Karol Aquilina and Speaker Anġlu Farrugia thought they’d never again hear about a near-collision on Malta’s busy roads a year ago. After the 3 June of [...]

Crossing a red light (1): What happened a year ago

2020-06-03T07:57:09+02:00Wed, 3rd Jun '20, 08:00|

This country is sinking deeper into the dark horrors of corruption and authoritarian abuse of power.   Air Malta’s spokesperson, Karl Stagno Navarra, who doubles as the Labour Party propagandist is serialising a concerted attack on PN MP Karol Aquilina. Under normal circumstances politicians should expect all manner of attack from their opposite number. But [...]

Repubblika on the evidence heard in court on Chris Cardona

2020-06-02T15:29:17+02:00Tue, 2nd Jun '20, 15:29|

The following is a statement by Repubblika issued earlier today: The state's witness, Melvyn Theuma, yesterday in court gave more reasons that make one doubt how much the declarations by the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party should be believed. From yesterday’s evidence, Chris Cardona seems to be heavily implicated in Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murder. [...]
