My respects to all the Times of Malta employees on the anniversary of the burningof the Times building onOctober 15, 1979 by Labour Party demonstrators.
I was night editor at the time and I am still proud of the job I had. I still hold the first copy of the next day’s The Times which was printed at the Nationalist Party press, kindly put at our disposal by Guido de Marco. I could go on with the story, but I feel that there is no need.
Times of Malta has an excellent tradition: keep that up and above all feel proud that you are working for an institution that upholds at all times freedom of expression and truth.
