Crime, torture and punishment under the knights
Flimkien Għal Ambjent Aħjar is organising a talk on William Zammit’s book Kissing the Gallows on Thursday.
The discussion will try to answer questions such as: what sort of crimes were committed in Malta during the period 1600 to 1798; how the justice system worked; and when and why torture was resorted to.
■ The talk will be held at Palazzo de la Salle, 219, Republic Street, Valletta, on Thursday, at 7pm. For tickets, visit http://ticketengine.faa.org.mt and for more information, call 2010 6428 or log on to http://faa.org.mt .
