Extra Time Denies Malta A Draw Against Bosnia
Jun 5 2024 Share

WATCH: Maria Farrugia scores in the 9th minute against Bosnia.

A goal in extra time awarded by the referee denied the Maltese women’s national team a draw in their match against Bosnia, resulting in a 2-1 loss.

This was their second encounter, following a 1-0 win for Bosnia in Malta a few days earlier. Despite the loss, the Maltese team played significantly better, creating several chances but remaining at the bottom of the standings with only one point from four games.

Malta took an early lead in the 9th minute with Maria Farrugia scoring from a setup by Brenda Borg. They nearly doubled their lead in the 12th minute when Rachel Cuschieri’s cross-shot hit the post.

Bosnia’s first significant chance came in the 14th minute but missed narrowly. Malta continued to threaten, with Haley Bugeja missing a rebound in the 32nd minute, and held a 1-0 lead at halftime.

Peppi Azzopardi Clip Reportedly Edited To Support Norman Lowell

Peppi Azzopardi Clip Reportedly Edited To Support Norman Lowell
Jun 5 2024 Share

Taking to social media, Peppi Azzopardi explained on video that he had a clip of him manipulated to make him sound as if he supports Imperium Europa’s Norman Lowell.

The clip was taken from a podcast episode of Jon Mallia, wherein Azzopardi was discussing Lowell and exclaiming that he does not in any way shape or form support him and his party’s ideas.

Peppi showed the edited clip which is followed by Lowell urging an end to the two party duopoly as he tears a red-blue paper in half.

The Xarabank host goes on to highlight why he does not agree with Lowell, quoting the latter’s alleged support of killing of babies with disabilities, the ruling used by Adolf Hitler and letting drug users overdosing out in the streets without support.

Azzopardi then says that the advert is being broadcast on the National Broadcaster, urging for action to be taken and have it taken down.

2 Ħamrun School Parkings To Be Used By Community

2 Ħamrun School Parkings To Be Open For Community
Jun 5 2024 Share

An agreement has been signed allowing the Ħamrun community to use the parking facilities at the Ex-Liceo Secondary School and the Ex-Maria Assumpta Secondary Complex. This arrangement will not affect the use of the parking spaces by educators and school administration, nor during major events organized by the schools.

Minister for Education, Sport, Youth, Research, and Innovation, Clifton Grima, stated, “This agreement is part of our effort to integrate education with the community. In every school we are modernizing, as well as in new constructions, we are making facilities available for community use where possible. We believe school spaces should be accessible to the community when not being used for educational purposes.”

He highlighted that facilities available to the community include sports facilities, halls, and other spaces. The Ministry is ensuring that vehicle parking spaces are not left unused when schools do not need them.

Parliamentary Secretary for Local Government, Alison Zerafa Civelli, commended the agreement between the two schools and the Ħamrun Local Council, noting that it will enhance the quality of life for Ħamrun residents. She remarked that free parking spaces in a densely populated area like Ħamrun will greatly benefit residents.

“I trust this agreement will bring peace of mind to vehicle owners in Ħamrun. I urge everyone using this parking to adhere to the rules and designated times,” stressed Parliamentary Secretary Zerafa Civelli.

The agreement also includes provisions to ensure the parking areas are safe and well-maintained. Security will be ensured through guards and surveillance cameras.

Ħamrun Local Council Mayor, Christian Sammut, thanked all those involved in the discussions that led to this agreement. “This agreement will help alleviate the parking shortage issue for the Ħamrun community, and the council is grateful that its request was granted. Through this agreement, the community will be better served,” said Mr. Sammut.
