LESA praised after officer helps man struggling with pushchair
Sep 9 2021 Share

A post uploaded to Maltese Facebook group ‘Are You Being Served?’ praised a LESA officer for helping a man struggling to put a baby into a car from its pushchair. Uploaded by Darren Stivala, the post reveals how the man was on the side of traffic when a Local Enforcement System Agency (LESA) officer stopped his car to assist him. He acted as a shield against traffic so that he can place the child safely into the car. 

He ended the post by addressing LESA, saying that not everyone hates the force but there are in fact people out there who notice these acts of kindness and appreciates them wholeheartedly. The post garnered a lot of praise, both for Stivala’s sharing of the generous act but mainly for the LESA officer who assisted the struggling man. Despite being unnamed, the officer’s work struck the heart of thousands who reacted to the post.

A man from Fgura who worked as a bouncer at a Marsascala establishment was found guilty of lifting up a client, head butting him and fracturing his nose. Gerald Gilford, 45, was accused by Inspector Oriana Spiteri of having inflicted grievous injuries on Adrian Gravina on the 1st of July 2018. The assailed reported the bouncer at Marsascala Police Station following the incident. 

When police spoke to the bouncer, the latter told them that Gravina had been chatting up a girl and kept making advances despite having allegedly been warned to leave her alone. Gravina stated in court that he had been chatting with the girl when a man approached him and pushed him. Gravina alleged that he moved to another table when the bouncer committed the act of violence. Magistrate Rachel Montebello believed Gravina’s version, stating that even if he had been annoying someone, Gravina should not have assaulted him. Gravina was handed an eight-month prison sentence suspended for two years.

Sep 9 2021 Share

McDonald’s have launched a meat-free burger which the fast food chain claims tastes just like beef. The McPlant Burger is already on sale elsewhere around the whole world, having just been introduced to the UK. It is a created partnership between US company Beyond Meat and McDonald’s, aiming to have the same texture and flavour of beef. 

The burger is not only targeted at vegetarians or vegans but also ‘flexitarians’, those who enjoy a mainly plant-based diet but still dip their taste buds into the occasional meaty dish.

This newsroom contacted Malta’s McDonald’s team to inquire whether or not this burger will be made available to cater for Malta’s vegetarians/vegans. A spokesperson told MaltaDaily that the McPlant is one of the many McDonald’s products under consideration and that it may in fact come to Malta in due course. So Malta’s vegetarians and vegans – keep an eye out!

PM Robert Abela to address rally at Ta’ Qali on 20th September

PM Robert Abela to address rally at Ta’ Qali on 20th September
Sep 9 2021 Share

The Labour Party has called for an official rally at the MFCC in Ta’ Qali on the 20th of September. Prime Minister Robert Abela is set to address the crowd during the rally which will conclude the party’s general conference. The rally announcement will likely continue to fuel more rumours of an impending general election despite the Prime Minister himself being silent on whether it will occur this year or the next. 

With the 2022 Budget announced for next October, the public is skeptical as to whether or not a snap election at the end of the year is in order. The rally does seem to be feeding into the election fever however, even though it will be mainly focused on conclude the discussions about education, social justice, Gozo, environment and Maltese politics as a whole.
