Running 18KM In Memory Of Rebecca Zammit Lupi

Tommy Wallbank organised an 18 kilometre run last Saturday in memory of the late Rebecca Zammit Lupi, who would have celebrated her 18th birthday last Thursday. 

Around 20 athletes met at 6:30 am near Surfside, running a route from Qui-Si-Sana to St Julian’s Love sign and back in two separate laps. 

Accompanied by coach Fabio Spiteri and runners of all levels and ages, the runners also raised donations for the Association of Abandoned Animals to honour Becs’ love for helping animals in need. 

Rebecca passed away in January of 2021 after battling cancer at the young age of just 15 years old. Following her passing, Wallbank pledged to run 1km for every €5 donated to Puttinu Cares. 

He has since continued to run in memory of his late friend, starting an athletic career in the process.

For those who couldn’t make it but still wish to contribute, donations to the Association for Abandoned Animals are still open via Revolut to 77300305.

€11 Million Worth Of Cocaine Smuggled At The Bottom Of A Ship

A collaborative effort between the Malta Police Force and Customs Officials yielded a drug bust of upwards of 97 kilos of cocaine hidden on a mercantile vessel entering the Free Port. 

On Sunday morning, during a unsuspecting raid by divers of a security company commissioned by the ship’s agents, a large number of plastic wrapped packets were noted at the bottom of the ship. 

The divers immediately informed the authorities, who promptly retrieved the packets for investigation. It was discovered that they were filled with cocaine, with a street market value of well over €11 million. 

Investigations showed that the ship, registered in Portugal, had departed from the port of Colon in Panama on the 24th of July as it made its way to the port of Gioia Tauro in Italy. 

The ship entered Malta’s Free Port in Marsaxlokk on Saturday evening. Further investigations showed that the drugs were not intended for the local market. An inquiry has been opened on the case.
