Letters

  • Waiting for medication

    I refer to the article ‘Inhumane wait for vital MS medicine’, (The Sunday Times of Malta, August 7). The article highlighted Sandra Apap’s inhumane wait for her multiple sclerosis medication. I too am a MS sufferer and I too have been waiting in...

  • Thank you

    I refer to my letter in The Sunday Times of Malta entitled ‘Medication entitlement’ (July 24). My Multiple Sclerosis medication Tecfidera (dimethyl fumarate) has been delivered to the pharmacy and was dispensed on August 3. I would like to thank...

  • Safe roads

    I agree that breathalyser tests would help reduce traffic accidents, especially fatal ones, but they are only a small part of what needs to be done. We should first ensure that outdated motoring laws should be scrapped and that all road signs are...

  • Bring back the telephone directory

    I would like to ask GO plc whether it intends to publish a new telephone directory as the last time one was issued was in 2004. Not everyone has access to a computer let alone the internet. Furthermore, a lot of the information listed in the 2004...

  • 20 years of sea contamination

    After 20 years one fish farm owner has finally admitted that the contamination of our swimming zones is caused by fish farms. Over the years these farms have increased their fish pens without the appropriate permits. The main question now must be...

  • Still waiting

    On July 15, I signed a contract with Melita plc whereby I was given a smartphone with instructions written in a language I did not understand. I complained several times that according to law the instructions should be either in Maltese or English.

  • More skips needed

    More skips needed

    A few months ago I wrote several e-mails to the Birkirkara local council regarding a bring-in site in Triq tal-Qattus, Swatar. The two small skips in this particular bring-in site were unable to cope with the demand and trash very often ended up...

  • Too many cars

    Having visited Malta over 100 times during the past 35 years I think I have earned a gold medal for tourism! So much has improved: the quality of service everywhere, the gastronomy, the care taken by the local councils to keep the place attractive...

  • Euthanasia

    The editorial in The Sunday Times of Malta of July 24 on euthanasia entitled ‘The right to life… and death?’ quotes Pope Francis warning Catholics against fundamentalism. However, it fails to quote Pope Francis on the subject discussed:...

  • Realist, not a racist

    Allow me to bring the following to the attention of Mike Wagstaff. The other day, a knife attack elderly on the streets of London left a woman dead. Not so long ago, Drummer Lee Rigby was hacked to death in broad daylight because he was a soldier.

  • Dead or alive

    I am truly surprised that Etienne Grech (August 5) should still be touting the old abortionist’s red herring that “there can be no life before the brain has started to form”. He argues that “death occurs when brain function ceases, hence, life...

  • Opera house project

    Opera house project

    I have seen the letter by Bernard Vassallo about the old opera house. The whole story started under the previous administration when the contract for both the new Parliament building and the old opera house ruins was given to architect Renzo Piano.

  • A strong online opposition

    It is so alarming that, after the travesty of a decision taken by the Planning Authority, there is absolute and complete silence coming from the Opposition. Why is this? Is it because the Gasans and (Tumas) Fenechs are playing friends to both...

  • GO dividends

    With reference to the item ‘GO gives Dubai Holdings € 6.1 million’ (August 10) and for the sake of correctness and clarity, GO plc would like to clarify the following points. It is factually incorrect to state that “GO has distributed a €6.1...

  • Parking scheme policies

    That some animals are more equal than others is what I can think of in reply to Charles Micallef (July 30) who, as a taxpayer, demanded that taxpayers are all treated as equals regarding residential parking. I have been enquiring in writing with...

  • Tall white elephants

    Tall white elephants

    Malta is fast becoming like this photo of Dubai. Do we really need to emulate this? Surplus to requirements? In 2013, more than 30 per cent of the office space in downtown Dubai was vacant according to a UNEP report.

  • High cost of skyscrapers

    The developers and the Planning Authority are not interested in public opinion and ‘we’are not consulted at all. They know full well that the Sliemalocal  council and the peopleof Sliema are totally against the Sliema/Mrieħel sky-scraper...

  • No legal representation

    I write in my capacity as director of TubeLine Limited and refer to the articles published on August 3 and 4 relating to the alleged involvement of Magistrate Aaron Bugeja as current legal representative of TubeLine Limited. This is not correct...

  • Formal resignation

    I refer to the front page reports of August 3 and subsequently, wherein it was stated, among other things, that Magistrate Aaron Bugeja is the company secretary of S & J (Euroasia Link) Ltd. I feel it is my duty that additional missing ...

  • Unnamed road

    One of the oldest roads in Safi that once connected Kirkop and Safi to Birżebbuġa is still with no name. Along this road one can find two historical places: the Roman tower known as Tal-Ġawhar and the garden of Sir Alexander Ball. I can’t...
