Letters

  • Tax evasion

    This what a friend in Germany has just written to me: “Panamagate - hilarious viewing if it wasn’t so serious! It’s like turning over a stone and watching a lot of beetles scurrying away out of the sunlight. Didn’t know that your Maltese...

  • Bank accounts

    I listened to the speech by Labour deputy leader andHealth and Energy Minister Konrad Mizzi to a packed hall the other day. The event reminded me of a Xarabank night. Mizzi tried miserably to explain his position with regard to the Panama Papers...

  • Leak scandal fallout

    Leak scandal fallout

    The resignation of the prime minister of Iceland was the first prominent political fallout from the document leaks known as the Panama Papers, which have shed a harsh light on the private financial activities of many rich and powerful people.

  • Motor sport

    I refer to the article ‘Off-roading laws need to be enforced to protect Mellieħa, says mayor’ (March 2). As the recognised Maltese federation for motorcycle sports (representing the International Motorcycling Federation FIM in Malta), the ASMK...

  • Pope on corruption

    I am often asked what has Pope Francis to say on corruption. He often spoke on the subject and I will mention just two instances. When still Archbishop of Buenos Aires he issued a strong pastoral letter denouncing corruption in Argentina. He also...

  • For all to see

    Valerie Borg (April 21) is either naïve or blinded ‘red’ as she tries hard to absolve Konrad Mizzi over the Panamagate affair by attacking Beppe Fenech Adami over his “palace and property”. She claims “we know naught” about Mizzi’s secret company...

  • No more bridal blush

    No more bridal blush

    We had the bad news that TripAdvisor did not include our island in the Top Islands in Europe. Some of us were shocked but I was not. I have now been back in Malta for seven years and I have got used to all that is good and bad in it. However, if...

  • We’ve heard it all before

    The Leader of the Opposition’s latest rallying cry is that he “intends to clean up politics in Malta once for all”. Big talk. But we have heard it all before from his predecessors. Prior to the 1987 general election Eddie Fenech Adami had promised...

  • Economic performance

    One must hand it to the present administration for its governance of public finances, on which our economy chiefly depends for its overall healthy performance. In 2015, our sovereign deficit was just 1.5 per cent of GDP, the lowest for decades;...

  • Standing up to corruption

    I am glad that the retired judge Giovanni Bonello found no need to take a stand against corruption in the 25 years of Nationalist administrations.

  • Contractor allegations

    I refer to the article ‘Contractor claims ministry official sought €30,000 bribe’, (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 17). Individuals with any allegations of wrongdoing are always directed to the competent authorities by the Ministry for Education...

  • Aggresive body language of Simon Busuttil

    In his recent meetings Leader of the Opposition Simon Busutill is using the wrong body language, which definitely doesn’t match his character. It will bene­fit him more if he uses a calm and relaxed manner of body language to reach the...

  • Swieqi roads

    Swieqi still has some awful roads, including Triq il-Keffa, a much-used thoroughfare, which needs upgrading immediately. Then there is Triq il-Ġiebja and Triq it-Tiben, which are in a dreadful state. Many roads have improved in Malta and Gozo over...

  • Falls by elderly on buses and training of drivers

    The letter ‘Buses’ sudden braking’ by Josephine Abdilla, (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 17), highlights the potential risk of falls among elderly public transport users. Eyesight problems, decreased mobility and poor balance do not help these...

  • Panama Papers saga

    The Panama Papers have been making the headlines for the past eight weeks and there seem to be different views within the Labour Party on how best to handle the situation. One thing is certain: the Prime Minister has said very little about the...

  • Christian values and PN policies

    I refer to the letter by Fr David Muscat entitled ‘Authentic Christian Democrats’, (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 17). Fr Muscat favours the crea­tion of a new political party for Maltese Catholics, “led by politicians of true Catholic faith,...

  • True Catholic politicians

    I refer to the letter by Fr David Muscat, ‘Authentic Christian Democrats’, (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 17). The letter reminded me of a court ruling by Judge Silvio Meli on October 12, 2012, and reported in the Times of Malta on October 13,...

  • Eco buildings

    I would like to express my disgust at the way new blocks of flats are mushrooming everywhere. The contractors are not content with building three- or four-storey buildings but they must make as much profit as possible by erecting five or six...

  • Ambassadors on their bikes

    Ambassadors on their bikes

    It was good to see a number of ambassadors to Malta riding bicycles along the Ta’ Xbiex front, thus setting an example to others to use this type of transport to travel the relatively small distances that we have in Malta. However, it was most...

  • Residents matter too

    As a resident of Castle Street, Victoria, I have come to the conclusion that somebody in authority has it in for those of us who live here. For the past two years we have had to put up with constant noise, dirt and dust, even on Sundays and public...
