  • Malta-UK relations

    Allow me to congratulate Joseph Cole on his recent appointment to the position of High Commissioner of Malta to the UK. I note his extensive experience in his previous diplomatic roles. I have always viewed, with regret, the general ignorance and...

  • Environment agency

    Ambjent Malta, launched last week, should start with a bang. It should save the trees along the new road development from Mrieħel to Rabat. Environmentalists and the public are urging the government and Transport Malta to find alternative ways and...

  • Organ transplants

    The British government has announced they are considering using an ‘opt out’ system for organ transplantation. This means that unless one gives specific instructions they do not want their organs to be used for transplantation, it will be assumed...

  • Museum skeletons

    Museum skeletons

    Reference is made to the letter with the title ‘Skeletal anatomy’ (August 6). First of all, we wish to point out that the correspondent is not correct in stating that the item that appeared on the Times of Malta on July 26 affirmed that the...

  • Best practice

    I refer to the article by Edward Rizzo (‘BOV’s midsummer shock’, August 9) and would like to clarify the bank’s position in respect of two particular points raised in the said article. The first point refers to the efficacy of the bank’s external...

  • Court expert

    With reference to the article entitled ‘Judge’s comments on “partner” expert raises questions’ (August 10), this office would like to bring the following to the attention of readers. The six cases in the names Police vs Usta Salih were appointed...

  • Poor horses... stop it (1)

    Poor horses... stop it (1)

    Perhaps Transport Malta should consider banning karozzin drivers from working their horses between noon and 4pm in the hot summer months. Horses are collapsing on the roads too frequently indicating that the heat and the load of carrying five...

  • Poor horses... stop it (2)

    It is high time that karozzini are banned once and for all from our streets. Streets are for vehicles not for horses doing a ‘one-horse-power’ cab.

  • A majority love Joseph Muscat and his family

    Reading through Kristina Chetcuti’s piece (‘On being a martyr’, The Sunday Times of Malta, August 5), I couldn’t make myself believe that such an opinion can ever be inspired, let alone penned by any woman who has a faint idea of what being a...

  • Oppose the Central Link Project

    Allow me to go straight to the relevant issues concerning the Attard bypass, known as the Central Link Project. I will start off with what this project is not. The road being proposed in ODZ agricultural land is not a four-lane bypass as was...

  • Third world conditions on our roads

    Third world conditions on our roads

    I would like to express my despair at the bad state of Maltese roads and the poor lighting system surrounding them. I have lived abroad in half a dozen countries and it pains me to say that Maltese roads are the worst I have ever experienced.

  • Peace on earth?

    If the ‘belligerent’ West truly wants peace on this lonely planet, it can achieve it and ought to be working towards such a desired outcome. In the same way that the West managed to disrupt the rest of humankind, it can right the wrongs of our...

  • Hiding behind euphemisms

    It is a sad truth that we often use euphemisms in order to conceal the evil behind our actions. During the Wannsee Conference outside Berlin in 1942 when senior Nazis met and decided that the time had come to exterminate all the Jews of Europe...

  • Shameful service by Maltapost

    Last September I found out that six letters addressed to me had been left in letterboxes of two other apartments in our block which are rarely or very rarely visited by the owners; two of the letters had been there for over four months. I had been...

  • A game of lesser evils

    It is remarkable how much ill-will, hatred, inconvenience and half-truth has piled up in Malta over the past weeks, months and years. I got into politics from being an environmental activist, certain that it would be an ideal chance to make a...

  • Blessed with a new bishop

    Blessed with a new bishop

    This country has been blessed with a new Auxiliary Bishop. Mgr Joseph Galea Curmi has a smile that reflects the joyful Christian commitment in bringing people to Jesus. As Ambassador for Christ he has the qualities to transmit His presence. From...

  • Life-saving device

    We would like to publicly thank the council and members of the Grand Commandery of the Castello, a jurisdiction of the Military and Hospitaller Order of St Lazarus of Jerusalem, for their recent donation of £7,800 for the purchase of an iBreast...

  • Human trafficking

    The captain of Sea Watch 3, Pia Klemp, blames the Prime Minister and other European leaders for the “mass grave” in the Mediterranean. I am sure the captain is aware of the criminal activity involved in the very lucrative business of human...

  • Sustainable development

    The Labour and Nationalist parties bicker over a lot of things but are in silent agreement with regard to the Planning Authority and the protection of the natural environment. Things have not changed or may be getting worse. Now, even the village...

  • Our bishops

    Our bishops

    I was amazed to hear on TV, challenging language being used in relation to bishops commenting on the current saga. The language left no doubt about it. It is common knowledge that the remit of our highly-respected bishops does not include...
