BURGERKARA! Hermanos Burgers is opening its doors in Birkirkara
Nov 15 2021 Share

Central Malta has been blessed with one banging burger chain after the other in recent months and the bustling central region of Birkirkara and local favourite Hermanos Burgers seems to be the latest to throw its hat in the ring.

Vowing to turn Birkirkara into Burgerkara, Hermanos Burgers announced that the burger joint will set up shop in Malta’s highly-populated city with a bright red Facebook post. As expected, the comments section was showered with comments welcoming the arrival of the beloved burger chain and if their other outlets are anything to go for, the new Hermanos spot will definitely brighten up the place.

Alex Dalli allegedly boasted with a minister over threatening prisoners with weapon

Former prison director Alex Dalli allegedly boasted with a minister and government officials over threatening inmates by placing a gun in their mouth. In shocking revelations published by newspaper Illum, sources have recounted how during a visit to Corradino Correctional Facility, an unnamed minister were greeted by Dalli with a pistol in his holster. 

The newspaper stated that Dalli boasted how he used the same weapon to control prisoners. The former director boasted how he placed the gun in the mouths of less obedient inmates. At least one named prisoner was mentioned, reported the newspaper, with the inmate threatened soon after Dalli took up the position.

This news comes after Dalli suspended himself last week following the third prison suicide this year. A former prison official Emmanuel Cassar claims to have witnessed incidents in which Dalli used the weapon to threaten prisoners. Dalli has not commented publicly on the allegations, but police are investigating the incidents. Dalli has however filed libel proceedings against the newspaper and the former prison guard.

‘Hidden Motives’ – employers concerned over workplace cannabis abuse

‘Hidden Motives’ - employers concerned over workplace cannabis abuse
Nov 15 2021 Share

The Malta Employer’s Association hit out at the legalisation of recreational cannabis in Malta, requesting the bill be postponed until after a general election. The legalisation would allow the dispensation of up to 50g of cannabis monthly to individuals, as well as permission to grow four plants at home. 

The position was issued Sunday, just two days after the PN announced it’s own position against the Bill as it claimed it would enable drug use. Director-general Joe Farrugia stated that the bill falls short of addressing numerous issues connected to cannabis consumption. It gives no assurances to employers about the effect consumption will have on the workplace.

‘The MEA will subsist on having the option of zero-tolerance policies at the workplace in the Bill, and the right to conduct random dope testing in the interest of their employees and their clients, and also to protect themselves from any liability.’ ‘Like the White Paper issued some months ago, the Cannabis Reform Bill is fraught with omissions, inconsistencies and hidden motives.’ 

The law, said Farrugia, should be aiming at consensus on decriminalisation without promoting consumption. Despite agreeing that cannabis should be decriminalised and that persons carrying minimal amounts for personal consumption should not be liable to criminal proceedings, the MEA accused the government of pushing ahead with the Bill before the elections ‘at all costs for reasons which may be unstated but which are known to all.’

A taxi driver is being hailed as a hero after he allegedly locked a suspicious passenger in his cab before the vehicle exploded outside a Liverpool hospital. The car, which belonged to David Perry, was engulfed in a fireball outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital yesterday morning. 

The passenger was killed in the back, after he asked to be driven to the Service of Remembrance at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral a mile away. Perry allegedly suffered minor injuries including cuts, bruises and ear drum damage. The father of two has already been discharged from hospital.

Three men have been arrested in connection with the incident, with anti-terror police performing a series of raids in a developing investigation. The man first asked Perry to pull over outside the hospital when they found out that they could not get to the event due to blocked streets. 

Perry noticed some kind of light attached to the man’s clothing and acted quick. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Liverpool Mayor Joanne Anderson thanked Perry and expressed their thoughts for those who were impacted by the incident.
