A heart-breaking image was shared on social media by PN MP Paula Mifsud Bonnici yesterday evening after the government voted against the opening of a public inquiry into the death of Jean Paul Sofia.

The grieving mother had been inside the parliament along with other supporters of the cause, which led to a heated confrontation between them and the government MPs after 40 votes were cast against the public inquiry’s opening. 

Writing in the photo’s caption, the PN MP asked how it is possible to console a mother whose hopes of justice for her late son were crushed. ‘Be ashamed, if you know how.’

The vote led to an almost unanimous disapproval by the Maltese, who took to social media to express their anger at the decision taken. In her statement after the vote, Isabelle also stated that she will not stop fighting for justice despite her disappointment at the decision.

Chaos as Government MPs Reject Inquiry into Tragic Loss of Jean Paul Sofia

Chaos as Government MPs Reject Inquiry into Tragic Loss of Jean Paul Sofia
Jul 12 2023 Share

The government Members of Parliament (MPs) voted down an opposition motion demanding a public inquiry into the tragic death of Jean Paul Sofia in a construction site accident last December.

Emotions ran high as family and friends of Jean Paul Sofia, present during the vote, expressed their deep anger and frustration. Shouting messages of outrage towards the government MPs and Prime Minister Robert Abela, the atmosphere inside the parliament grew increasingly tense.

Prime Minister Abela himself faced vehement criticism, being labeled “Mickey Mouse” and accused of being engrossed with his mobile phone throughout the session. In a furious outcry, attendees accused the government MPs of indifference, alleging their primary concern was personal gain rather than the welfare of the people they represent.

This controversial decision has left many questioning the government’s commitment to justice and accountability, particularly in cases involving workplace safety.

The refusal to initiate a public inquiry has intensified the grief and anger felt by Jean Paul Sofia’s loved ones, as they sought answers and closure surrounding the circumstances of his untimely demise.

Young MP Eve Borg Bonello took to social media to share footage of the commotion inside the parliament as she, along with other Nationalist MPs, supported and pushed for the motion to pass.
