Asking if there’s an issue in the crowd, Capaldi called for security to assist the individual before going on to state that “it is very warm so if someone falls or looks dehydrated or tired please look after them and look after yourselves as well.”

After the situation, the camera hilariously pans to a phone message held up by a fan stating “my friend is single”. Upon noticing it, the crowd bursts into laughter before going on with the concert.

Occupy Justice call on for Attorney General’s resignation

Occupy Justice call on for Attorney General’s resignation
Jul 2 2022 Share

Protesting on Friday evening, activists from Occupy Justice called on the Attorney General to ‘pack up and go’, in reference to a recent blunder which led to a bribery acquittal for Yorgen Fenech’s lawyers. 

The activists left a number of suitcases outside the Attorney General’s office after Charles Mercieca and Gianluca Caruana Curran had been charged by police of attempting to bribe Times of Malta journalist Ivan Martin. They attempted to hand him hundreds of euros at the end of a meeting.

The charges were cleared after the magistrate ruled the relevant offence was not properly indicated by Attorney General Victoria Buttigieg. The Attorney General was called on by the IGM to take responsibility as it qualified the criminal officer wrongly, forcing the magistrate to clear the lawyers of attempted bribery. 

In a memo, the activists said that Malta urgently needs independent, courageous and competent people in key positions who ‘are prepared to do their job without fear or favour’. 

‘You are failing Malta at a critical point in her history, and we’ve had enough. Pack your bags and go.’

‘Dr Bezzina who has been working for the past three years with FSWS, is now following a training programme to specialise further in Addiction Medicine.’

Bezzina, who is a medical doctor, also took on music as a part time passion, quickly rising to local fame after he won the local edition of the Eurovision with the song ‘Tomorrow’. Making it to the final, Bezzina managed to finish in 8th place with a total score of 120 points.

Bezzina’s song “Tomorrow” became the first Maltese Eurovision Song Contest to enter the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 37, for a week.
