He highlighted that the president, who is Maltese (Roberta Metsola), agreed to not have Maltese and Irish get interpreters for all forms of meetings. 

Engerer explains that he has voted against the rules of procedure due to this fact and not because he disagrees with the rest of the rules of procedure. 

He finishes his message in Maltese, saying that he cannot address this parliament in Maltese as the rules discriminate against him and other colleagues.

A man from Bormla, identified as 43-year-old Nazzareno Dalli, also known as Ronald, has been remanded in custody on charges of attempting to murder two teenage girls. 

During a brief arraignment before Magistrate Caroline Farrugia Frendo, Dalli pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, grievous bodily harm, illegal arrest, and assaulting the girls. 

Additionally, he faced charges of carrying a knife without a permit, possessing a weapon during an offense, cocaine possession, and working as an unlicensed private guard.

Despite being requested to be considered a recidivist, no prior judgments against him were found online. Bail was not requested. Details about the incident were scant during the arraignment, but sources suggest Dalli may have been under the influence of cocaine during the stabbing. 

Dalli, reportedly the stepfather of the victims, attacked the girls with a knife at their residence in Triq San Tumas, Marsa. 

The girls, aged 12 and 15, sustained grievous injuries and were hospitalized, with at least one requiring intensive care. A 14-year-old boy present during the attack was treated for shock. At the end of the hearing, Dalli’s relatives showed support, prompting a rebuke from the magistrate. 

Inspectors Wayne Camilleri and Ian Vella lead the prosecution, supported by lawyers from the Office of the Attorney General, while Arthur Azzopardi, Nicholas Mifsud, and Franco Debono serve as defense counsel.
