Calls for action against Mosta priest for homophobic post by ministers and activists

Calls for action against Mosta priest for homophobic post
Jan 6 2022 Share

Activists and even ministers have been urging police to take action against Fr David Muscat, a Mosta priest who is no stranger to controversy, for hate speech following Paulina Dembska’s murder. The post was focused on prime suspect Abner Aquilina, with the priest saying that the possibility that he was gay or bisexual would be worse than him being sick or possessed. 

Both Inclusivity Minister Julia Farrugia Portelli and Equality Minister Owen Bonnici addressed the issue as having crossed a line. Farrugia herself revealed in a Facebook post that she had asked the police to investigate and act against Fr Muscat for his homophobic comments.

‘There are clear laws in our country’ said Farrugia. ‘I will never accept that a person is insulted for their sexuality.’ Speaking on One TV’s Piazza programme, Minister Bonnici said that a line has been crossed and that he contacted authorities to take the necessary decisions. 

Archbishop Charles Scicluna was also asked to address the hate speech Muscat incited. The call was supported by the Malta Gay Rights Movement (MGRM) alongside other organisations and individuals. MGRM also revealed that they have written four emails to the bishops about Fr David and that no action has been taken. 

‘This is the level of hate speech our community faces without consequences’ they said in a post as other individuals supported the call.

Speaking to Polish publication Fakt, Paulina Dembska’s parents reported that they found out about their daughter’s death through media reports. 

Polish police informed the family of the tragic murder well over 36 hours after the body was discovered in Sliema, Malta. Paulina’s sister allegedly found out about the death and called their parents.

With Paulina’s body discovered early on Sunday morning, police approached the family with the information on Monday at 4pm. They were only informed about the process of repatriating Paulina’s body, with a fund set up in Malta raising over €30,000 to help with the process. 

The family also called in via WhatsApp during the vigil dedicated to Paulina, thanking all those who showed up and helped in some way for what they were doing. 

Paulina, a 29-year-old national, was murdered on the 2nd of January at Independence Gardens, Sliema. Abner Aquilina, a 20-year-old from Żejtun, is being treated as the main suspect and has since been referred to Mount Carmel.

Hero dog saves injured hiker by curling around him for 13 hours

Hero dog saves injured hiker by curling around him for 13 hours
Jan 5 2022 Share

Grga Brkic accidentally fell whilst hiking with his dog, North, in the Velebit mountains in Croatia and was left unable to move. 

The eight-month-old Alaskan Malamute curled up with the hiker and kept him warm for 13 hours before they were rescued. A photo accompanying a post by Croatia’s mountain rescue service shows the dog curled up on top of Mr Brkic.

‘Friendship and love between man and dog have no boundaries’ the post read. As first respondents made their rescue attempt, the dog helped out by ensuring the hiker did not freeze to death. 

After 13 hours nearly 30 first responders reached him and were able to transport him off the mountain. The hiker described the dog as a real miracle, having been certified not harmed by the entire ordeal. 

Despite Croatia’s mountain rescue warning against taking dogs for hikes in difficult conditions, North proved to be the hiker’s very survival in this scenario.
