Every story that is not investigated increases the impunity in this country. Every story that is not investigated continues to dismantle law and order and the rule of law in this country. Every story that is not investigated puts our brave journalists increasingly at risk.
Malta IS a Mafia state. It’s impossible not to realise this. And if you think that this has nothing to do with you, you’re very wrong. It does, so don’t look away or sit on the fence.

They gave him a hero’s send-off. They depicted him as a saviour, a saint and a martyr, the ultimate politician and statesman. They should have depicted him as he really is – reprehensible, repugnant, repulsive and revolting. They should have told him “good riddance to bad rubbish”.
The aspiring Prime Minister of Malta does not understand that the possibility or perception of conflicts of interest are considered as actual conflicts of interest at law.
Those opposing to this government’s corruption – NGOs, civil society and the Opposition party – need to be careful not to fall into the their trap.
