Civil society NGOs to call for justice on Caruana Galizia case in 1st March protest.

Feb 26 2021 Share

Civil society NGOs Repubblika, manueldelia.com and #occupyjustice will be taking to the front of Parliament to protest a renewed call for justice with regards to Daphne Caruana Galizia’s case. The NGOs expressed their anger at Prime Minister Robert Abela’s seeming eagerness to close the case.

Using the admission of Vince Muscat, known as il-Koħħu, as a sign that the state has fulfilled its duty, the NGOs stated that this is simply ‘self-congratulation’.

According to them, this is ‘being used to undermine a country and forget the impunity that politicians still enjoy for the corruption they have committed.’ They also refer to the Electrogas contract, from which the owners are allegedly still making money. As public protests are allowed, the NGOs stated that they will seize the opportunity to fight the corruption.

Two men shot Lady Gaga’s dog walker 4 times and continued to steal two of the celebrity’s French bull-dogs Kojo and Gustavo. The incident took place February 24th in West Hollywood around 10pm local time. The dog walker Ryan Fischer, 30, was shot in the chest and found barely breathing by police and is now in grave condition.

Gaga’s third dog Miss Asia managed to escape the capture and was retrieved later by one of Gaga’s bodyguards. Gaga is reportedly in Italy, having left the dogs in Fischer’s care. Lady Gaga is now offering a $500,000 reward for her stolen dogs and is extremely distraught at the kidnap of her pets.
