Caruana Galizia killer George Degiorgio files another leave request for daughter’s birthday

 - News - Mar 15 SHARE ON:

Daphne Caruana Galizia convicted killer George Degiorgio has once again requested for prison leave, this time for his daughter’s birthday.

This comes weeks after Degiorgio and the authorities came under fire for the killer being allowed to leave the prison to attend a family baptism, an event which came under intense scrutiny by the media and the public.

The news was leaked by the European Centre for Press & Media Freedom’s Twitter page, which stated that “Prison should not be a hotel where people come and go as they please.”

The Non-Governmental & Nonprofit Organisation stressed that the Maltese authorities should make sure Degiorgio is not allowed this time.

The organisation then retweeted legal advisor Flutura Kusari, who stated “this is how #Malta treats criminals who kill journalists – it allows them out of jail to party and enjoy life when they are serving a sentence for a journalist’s murder.”

According to Kusari, the Attorney General’s office is against this decision, previously stating that Malta’s approach to Daphne’s murder ‘sets the standard for other countries’.

Last few spots to fill as final Brillanti auditions wrap up

The final stage of the Brillanti auditions has arrived as the selection process by Andrea Attila, Brenda Lee Grech and Patrick Odametey wraps up next Friday.

The auditions were tough, as dancers had to show that they had what it takes to be chosen for far more difficult phase of the competition.

Presenter and host Joseph Chetcuti was there to motivate every single one of them, but at the end of the day, it was the judges who made the call.

The final audition episode will see even more professional movers take to the big stage to try and squeeze into the last remaining spaces.

And from then on, the quarter final challenges will officially begin. That means an even tougher competition, higher level as well as the judges exercising their years in the field to deem who is the best of the best.

"For anyone who is in a dark moment", Pawlu Borg Bonaci shares words of courage

“Someone, someone slept alone for the first time, someone graduated even though the current was against him, someone embraced his mother for the last time and doesn’t know she will leave him tomorrow…”

These were the initial statements of local singer and entertainer Pawlu Borg Bonaci as he posted a few sentiments of courage on Facebook for all those who may be going through a tough time.

Attempting to motivate anyone attempting to overcome adversity to speak to someone or seek help, Borg Bonaci stated that while the statements may not make sense to some, they could be all someone needs to save a life.

“Someone tasted a lemon for the first time, someone felt alone in an office of people, someone hugged their father after ten years and forgave him for not accepting he was gay, someone threw away a packet of cigarettes and said that they won’t smoke anymore”, the post continued.

“For anyone who is in a dark moment”, Borg Bonaci concluded.
