  • Kudos

    Allow me to publicly express my praise and compliments to the female director, Katia Caruana, currently running the Justice Department for an outstanding and sterling service given to our legal firm. Indeed, she is a shining example of how women...

  • Excellent service

    I would like to publicly thank the Justice Department in Malta, impeccably directed by a female, for the excellent service provided to me from her delightful employees. Their attention to detail, great communication skills, and a ready...

  • Utter disgrace

    I am at a loss as to why car owners continue to empty their ashtrays onto the kerbside. Tourists Street in Buġibba is an utter disgrace with broken uneven pavements, never maintained, making it difficult to walk with tables and chairs all over the...

  • Solar rights

    Solar rights

    The ‘solar rights’ referred to in the Times of Malta report (May 3) are not something artificial or unreal.  If the Planning Authority really respects Maltese citizens in general, and not restrictedly developers and their endless quest for money,...

  • Valid question

    I refer to Eddy Privitera’s letter ‘Bar connections’ (April 26) wherein the following was stated: “The obvious idea behind the story is to instil in the minds of gullible readers the possibility that Chris Cardona is somehow involved in the murder...

  • Watch: 'We'll stop other PA meetings if we have to'

    Watch: 'We'll stop other PA meetings if we have to'

    Developers have "turned politicians into their puppets" and the only thing that can stop them from bulldozing over Malta's natural heritage is a critical mass of people willing to stand up and be counted, an up-and-coming environmental activist...

  • Voluntary organisations

    Professor Kenneth Wain, who was appointed Malta’s first-ever Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations (NGOs) in December 2007, has recently resigned from his post. When it was established 11 years ago under a Nationalist administration, it was...

  • Trickle-down economy - Carmel Mallia

    The title above contains the buzzwords frequently used by the Minister of Finance and other Members of Parliament on social media and on various occasions when talking about Malta’s economic boom, and also about the distribution of wealth. Is it...

  • State of Maltese politics - Martin Scicluna

    State of Maltese politics - Martin Scicluna

    Last week I highlighted the deep polarisation in Maltese politics and the country’s fixation on conspiracy theories. The assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia has been used by three Maltese members of the European Parliament and a small...

  • The EU ambassadors - Madeleine Gera

    I refer to Martin Scicluna’s article on ‘The EU Ambassador’s report’ (May 2). What he refers to as the “Maltese predilection for conspiracy theories” certainly does not exclude a great many other countries whose peoples are as disposed to their...

  • A Maltese Mafia mentality? - Arnold Cassola

    The word “Mafia” usually brings to mind images of a machine gun toting rough and tough guy from Corleone or Totò Riina briefing his men around a large dining table in a secluded farmhouse in the province of Catania (or Gozo?), or a group of...

  • Foreign workers in Malta

    As everyone can see, Malta is invaded with foreign workers, not only EU citizens but also from outside the EU. According to what is being said, the number of these workers is going to increase in the near future. No wonder, wherever you go, you...

  • Man’s endemic frailness

    John Guillaumier proclaims a triumphant phlegmatic sinless world in contradiction of  Catholic Church’s teachings and stark reality. On top of that,with a stroke of self-glorification, against all Socratic elenchus, he endorsed with arrogant...

  • Meghan Markle link to Malta

    Meghan Markle link to Malta

    Jessica Huie, who set up Color Blind Cards, and describes herself of mixed heritage, or biracial, and is a friend of Meghan Markle, gave an interview to The Daily Telegraph on April 23. She spoke of their trip to Malta which “was Huie’s...

  • All that glitters is not gold

    Eddy Privitera (May 5) seems to be very happy about the PL’s success in recent years. However, had it not been for President Emeritus Eddie Fenech Adami, whose foresight has no parallel, Privitera would still be living in a jungle. I am sure that...

  • Watch: In defence of environmental activism

    Watch: In defence of environmental activism

    Environmental activism is a tough gig even at the best of times, but Victoria Pisani is not the type to be easily daunted. In this Times Talk interview, the 27-year-old Kamp Emerġenża Ambjent and Moviment Graffiti member has some harsh words for...

  • Reining in building contractors

    Sandro Chetcuti’s “points system” proposal to curb abuses in the construction industry could have made a brilliant April Fool’s joke. The situation has been allowed to get out of hand so much now that few believe the industry can be effectively...

  • Think tank calls it a day - Joseph Tabone

    Your editorial of April 27 accurately captured the essence of my earlier statement to The Sunday Times of Malta, as well as the short history and contributions of the Today Public Policy Institute since its inception. I should add that the board’s...

  • Jurisdiction of excellence - Edward Zammit Lewis

    Jurisdiction of excellence - Edward Zammit Lewis

    According to a recent report by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, money laundering and terrorism financing are financial crimes that threaten the world’s security, economic stability and the integrity of the financial system. It...

  • Children deserve safeguarding - Mary Hilda Camilleri

    I have been following the debate on the amendments to the IVF law with great interest and am proud of the many men and women who have contributed to the debate – their devotion to the unborn and their sympathy for infertile couples too. It is not...
