Appearing on the feed of AP News among some of the voices that dominated, Abela’s speech featured Giorgia Mae’s encouraging message to the entire globe. 

“I would like to conclude by conveying a message my 10-year-old daughter Giorgia Mae, who is here in the audience, wished me to pass on when I explained to her that I would be addressing this meeting of world leaders. 

She said: ‘I would like the world leaders to be an example to us children and leave behind a beautiful Earth.’”

The UN General Assembly is the main policy-making organ of the Organisation. It essentially comprises all member sates and provides a unique forum to discuss all international issues. And Giorgia’s words had a chance to sound off in this massively important space. 

Apart from her father giving speeches to gathered world leaders, Giorgia Mae’s mother Lydia Abela also took the opportunity whilst in New York to focus on sustainability in the fashion industry during a prestigious event.

Around 2,000 health and safety inspections carried out in 6 months

 - News - Sep 23 SHARE ON:

On Friday, the Occupational Health and Safety Authority (OHSA) confirmed that the first half of this year saw approximately 2,177 health and safety inspections carried out by health and safety officers.

They later confirmed in the statement that those inspections were then followed up by around 400 private meetings with people responsible for safety and health at the office or workplace in order to discuss and evaluate these inspections.

Between January and June, a number of workplaces – 357 to be exact – were given notices as to what needs improvement and how to address any problem which might arise regarding health and safety.

253 entities or people were given administrative fines for breaking or breaching any health or safety rules that a workplace must follow. Put together, these fines came up to a total of around €100,000.

Work was immediately stopped at 403 workplaces due to there being an urgent safety concern or dangers which were considered serious enough to lead to death.

The most common issues found by health and safety officers were precautions to prevent falls from heights, clients not going through with project supervisors orders or suggestions, and a lack of project supervisors on site.

49 arrested in Marsa raid against irregular immigration

Taking to social media this morning, Minister for Home Affairs, National Security and Law Enforcement Byron Camilleri revealed that 49 people were arrested in the latest raid against irregular immigration.

The minister stated that this fourth raid in the last couple of days took place yesterday night as heavy rain poured all over the Maltese islands. 

The raid, aided by the units against organised crime and drug trafficking, took place in Marsa. The process of repatriation for all those arrested ‘will start immediately’ said the Minister. 

During the raids, properties were sealed off and access to electricity and water was cut off. The raids form part of a nation wide fight against irregular immigration. 

‘Through these raids we are sending a clear message that our country is not open to those who do not abide by the law’ said Camilleri. ‘In the coming weeks, this work will pick up pace as further raids are carried out all over Malta.’
