On Saturday evening, Isabelle Bonnici took to Facebook page ‘Għal Jean Paul’ to share the sombre news that today is her son Jean Paul Sofia’s first birthday since the tragic Corradino incident that took his life.
“Tomorrow is a harsher and more difficult day day than usual because it is my beautiful son’s first birthday that I cannot celebrate with him. I don’t wish to write anything else except to remind you to remember me in your prayers”, the mother wrote on the eve of her son’s birthday.
“You will not be able to comment because the more I read the more it pains me. I’m sure that you understand and I send you a hug”, the post concluded.
Jean Paul Sofia died in Corradino on December 3rd 2022 after a building under construction collapsed over him, with his mother Isabelle launching a nationwide campaign calling for justice for her son and a public inquiry, which was eventually granted after intense pressure from thousands.
