    Send it back - Manuel Delia

    The Egrant matter is not settled. And the frantic effort being made to get everyone to shut up about it simply serves to highlight it as unfinished business. Two weeks since the amateur dramatics enacted at Castille, the injured parties have gone...

  • Let the whole truth be exposed

    Let the whole truth be exposed

    One can imagine what Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and his wife Michelle went through before the conclusions of the Egrant inquiry were published. That is why we Maltese citizens, who want to live a normal life founded on noble principles and...

  • Writing is on the wall, but it’s not in Maltese - Maurice Cauchi

    A living language is one that changes slowly with the times. A dead language is one that had been overcome by overpowering dominant influences. As someone who has witnessed the Maltese language disappearing at an increasing rate in generation...

  • Testing of pesticides in food

    With reference to the article entitled ‘Maltese fruit and veg top EU pesticide list’, (The Sunday Times of Malta, July 29), I would like to point out that different fruit and vegetables and products of animal origin in the Maltese market are...

    Island at risk of being  stifled by fuel stations - Alan Deidun

    The decision on planning application PA 2585/18, for the umpteenth proposed ODZ fuel station (complete with car and truck wash areas, a class 4b shop and other ancillary facilities including a class 5a shop), at Triq Ħal Tarxien in Żejtun, was...

  • Hope to the vulnerable

    Every community will have people who need a little bit of extra help to get by. Sometimes all that is required is some information about how to apply for social benefits to which one may be entitled. At other times, questions are more complex like...

  • The unforgivable story - Helena Dalli

    The unforgivable story - Helena Dalli

    The lies. The money. The chaos that could have been. The pain. The scars. The fear in the minds of two nine-year-olds. The lust for power at all costs. The falsification. The forgery. The media houses turning allegation into fact. The early election.

  • Question time: Up in arms

    Nikita Zammit Alamango, Member of PL National Executive Our readers remember the pre-2013 scenario. Energy tariffs were the main issue of concern in Malta, stalling families’ quality of life and businesses’ strength to invest more in human...

  • A quibbler’s fest

    The publication of the Egrant inquiry report really sprang a surprise. When 50 pages were mentioned, I wondered whether the report had to be so long. Didn’t Nexia BT owner, Brian Tonna, not declare last year, in the run-up to the election, that...

  • More crossings

    It is a fact that Gozo Channel crossings have increased considerably during the last couple of years. However, I feel that it is no longer appropriate to reduce the number of crossings in the early hours throughout the summer and winter periods. I...

  • Building uglification

    Building uglification

    I refer to the article by Michael Stivala, general secretary of the Malta Developers’ Association (‘Property prices: who is really gaining?’, August 1), which so obviously lobbies for more land to be made available for building by the government...

  • Politicians must be above suspicion

    It is difficult to understand the logic of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat in the aftermath of the publication of the main conclusions of theEgrant inquiry. He has good reason to be relieved with the outcome. It would have been very bad – not just...

  • The way forward - Tonio Borg

    Leaders must possess a number of characteristics: charisma, courage, decisiveness but, above all, a command of the art of compromise. In my political life I had to decide between compromise, which can sometimes be mistaken for weakness, and...

  • Milestone and Flintstone - Fr David Muscat

    Milestone and Flintstone - Fr David Muscat

    On July 29, the Mosta parish church, the Rotunda, was elevated to the dignity of a minor basilica. It was indeed an event of great joy commensurate with the rejoicing of the Jews succeeding Nehemiah’s rebuilding of the walls after their return...

  • Crucial evidence

    I refer to the item titled ‘“100 suspicions do not amount to a single piece of evidence”’ (July 23), quoting some parts from the magisterial inquiry into the Egrant allegations. What hit me most is the piece about the Pilatus Bank chairman’s...

  • Impressive service

    I would like to compliment the Justice Department, which is run by an exemplary director. The staff under her watch went to great lengths to help me when inquiring how to register in Malta to practise the legal profession. I must say I received...

  • Lord’s mills

    The editor of the Times of Malta never prints my letters but I always say that where there is life there is hope. Because of what Simon Busuttil, the dead shall remain nameless, Pierre Portelli and David Casa put the Muscat family through, my very...

  • Motoring heritage

    Motoring heritage

    For almost 30 years, I have been making appeals to owners of vintage cars who, like me, would like to see the setting up of a Malta transport museum. I continue to witness so much enthusiasm, even in recent days, in the Maltese motoring heritage.

  • Bank de-risking strategy

    Bank of Valletta’s interim results for the first half of 2018 confirm a pre-tax profit from operations of €88.5 million, which, however, is reduced to €13.5 million because of a €75 million provision mainly because of litigation in an Italian court.
