Politicians and members of the community came together online on Wednesday to mourn the loss of Professor Edwin Grech, a former Minister of Malta and father of letterbomb victim Karin Grech.
Prof. Grech died at age 94, without ever having seen justice for the death of his daughter, who died in 1977 at age 15 after opening a letterbomb addressed to her father.
Nationalist Party & Opposition leader Bernard Grech shared a few sentiments on Facebook to salute the memory of his Uncle, stating “he was a person who inspired me even though I come from a working family from the South of Malta, I was able to go to University and become a lawyer. A person who helped my mother birth me and helped thousands of women and couples.”
Minister for Foreign Affairs, EU Affairs & Trade Ian Borg also took to Facebook, calling him “A father who died without ever knowing who killed his daughter. He would only speak to me about that. The state surely failed you and your entire family. Rest in peace Profs.”
Prime Minister Robert Abela called Prof. Grech ‘a person who gave everything for his countries and patients who were so close to his heart’.
RIP Prof. Grech.
