Chetcuti made reference to multiple media reports along with posts by personalities and politicians including Cyrus Engerer and Clayton Mercieca, whom he tagged, ensuring that Nordic and the rest of his establishments have strict policies to ensure respect to customers “irrelevant of their social background, race, and sexual orientation.”

The Hugo’s Group boss went on to condemn the ‘shameful and irresponsible’ posts which tarnish the reputation of the struggling business with “unverified facts, blatant lies and false allegations”.

The issue was first addressed by the Malta Gay Rights Movement (MGRM) after reposting the woman’s post and advising the community to avoid such a venue with politicians like Cyrus Engerer also being amongst the first to address the situation.

TVM decision to stop airing news broadcasts and move to TVMnews+ met with harsh criticism

TVM decision to stop airing news broadcasts and move to TVMnews+ met with harsh criticism

A change to the national broadcasts of news bulletins has been met with a considerable amount of criticism after TVM announced that news and current affairs shows will no longer air on TVM’s primary station but on a newly-converted TVMnews+.

The new television station will take the place of TVM2 and exclusively air news, sports, culture & history programmes with TVM to only broadcast programmes related to entertainment.

The first to criticise the move were the PN, who stated that they are considering legal action to put a halt to the Labour Party’s ‘grip’ on Malta’s national television station, expressing that they do not believe PBS management will act fairly and autonomously after being found guilty of partiality multiple times.

The PN also highlighted how multiple journalists reportedly left the television station due to the inability to work freely and also criticised the lack of coverage given to the Opposition, despite orders from The Broadcasting Authority.
