Letters

  • Unfit for purpose

    The reaction by the leader of the Opposition, Simon Busuttil, to the inquiry report and the decision made by the Prime Minister to ask for Manuel Mallia’s resignation and the subsequent decision to dismiss him when Mallia failed to step...

  • Broadcaster and cartoonist

    Broadcaster and cartoonist

    I was saddened when the news broke out in Siġġiewi that Maurice Tanti Burlò passed away at the age of 78. He was a friend for a long time as we were colleagues at Television House. The last position he held there was as deputy head of programmes...

  • Children of Lahore

    I am a sister of Charity of St Jeanne Antide working at St Jeanne Antide Bible High School in Shahdara, Lahore, Pakistan. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all those working at Mission Fund and all benefactors who help them by...

  • Science can help

    Science can help

    I refer to the letter ‘Male or female is an open question’ by Michael Rosner (December 10). The research on “special cases” that Rosner suggests would be interesting and should be done. However, we should not ignore what science is telling us...

  • PN bashing

    In his letter about refunds from former ministers, Stanley Clews “invites” the views of Eddy Privitera on various subjects. I am sure Clews knows that Privitera can only give biased views, based on the only concept of hatred of the Nationalist Party.

  • Violation of human rights

    Last month, the Maltese ecclesiastical province issued a ‘Statement of policy and procedures in cases of sexual abuse’. It is a step in the right direction indeed, although I have some reservations about it, one of which is the following. The ...

  • Far too conservative

    I quote from Ivan Fenech’s ‘A promiscuous virgin’ (December 9). “Thankfully, we have so far been spared another assault on our society, this time by Justice Minister Owen Bonnici. He said that by Christmas he would gate-crash Parliament...

  • Relative

    I have been in India for than 60 years. Now I am residing at Loyola House, in Naxxar, and will remain in Malta. I would like to meet a relative, James Rizzo. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Research on artist Isabelle Borg

    I am a student at the University of Malta reading for a degree in history of art. As part of my undergraduate dissertation, I am researching the late artist Isabelle Borg under the supervision of Charlene Vella. Part of my research will consist of...

  • Law enforcement

    I would like the Transport Minister to answer these questions about why certain laws and regulations are not upheld. Why do cars not use their indicators to signal which direction they are going to turn? Why do cars park on bus stops without...

  • Second anniversary of Sandy Hook tragedy

    I live in Newtown, Connecticut with my wife and two young daughters. My family is from Birkirkara. Today marks the second anniversary of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, where 20 first grade students and six educators were...

  • Lyceum class of 1947

    Lyceum class of 1947

    Where are they now, these young men of old? We came together at the end of 1942, unscathed by the wartime destruction. We came from families that represented a wide spectrum of Maltese society from distant villages and nearby towns. Rich and poor...

  • Giving democracy the jitters

    I refer to Michael Falzon’s column ‘Giving left-wingers the jitters’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, November 23). Though being a member of ‘The Group of 26’ to which the author refers, I shall only speak on my behalf since the group is not a formal...

  • Pope’s Europe speeches

    Pope’s Europe speeches

    As Europeans, we still have to digest Pope Francis’s vibrant and historic speeches delivered on November 25 to the European Parliament and to the Council of Europe. Media coverage in our newspapers and TV networks has been rather scant. And the...

  • Unfair dismissal

    Ever since I was a child I was always led to believe that each and every person is responsible for his actions. Thus I was shocked to hear of Manuel Mallia’s unfair dismissal. I think the Prime Minister acted too rashly in sacking the person who...

  • Link between Gozo and Malta (1)

    I recently listened to a live discussion on RTK about the proposed physical link between Gozo and Malta. I am against any link that would impinge, or, worse, destroy the particular characteristics that give Gozo its distinctiveness in the Maltese...

  • Link between Gozo and Malta (2)

    The Gozo bridge/tunnel debate has prompted me to do a bit of research, particularly given that the government has quoted a cost of €1 billion for a bridge. At the present time, the Danish government has commissioned a two-lane subsea road tunnel...

  • Help from Pakistan

    Here in Faisalabad at Government Primary School Chak 4 we are struggling with hepatitis cases as many are unable to pay for the treatment which is very expensive –it costs about €1,500 for each patient. We need to help them as best we can. TB...

  • Another book

    At the beginning of the month, Gino Lombardi added another book to his collection. This is the eighth that the author has published, which is entitled Bla Ħtija. It is a continuation of the previous book – Bla Isem. However, one can follow Bla...

  • Beware the buskers

    I write about the report on the busker turf wars (December 9). The department of trade should order some control over the so-called buskers, opposite the Chalet, in Sliema. A couple of buskers were displaying their wares on the benches there but...
