Migrant's death: PN concerned about racism
The Nationalist Party said this evening that while it awaited the outcome of investigations into the case where a Malian immigrant died in a Detention Service van, it was concerned about racist sentiments expressed by irresponsible people in the media and in politics.
The party said that it had every confidence that justice would be served in this case.
It believed in a fair society which helped whoever was in need, while the government worked to ensure that the burden of immigration was evenly borne in the EU.
"The Nationalist Party in government has saved the lives of thousands of people who were in danger of drowning after escaping from their countries - and it never did like somebody else who insisted that Malta should do like other countries and refuse to help them. The PN defends the rights of the immigrants and when it speaks of a fair society it does not make vote considerations, as, unfortunately, somebody else does," the party said.
