Taken from across the street, the video shows the man arched against against a flat surface as he handles what seems to be a sachet of cocaine.

During the first 7 months of 2022, a record-breaking amount of 2,339 kilograms of cocaine were discovered by Maltese authorities, exceeding the total amount of cocaine seized in 2021 three times over.

Back in November, the CEO of the Foundation for Social Welfare Services Alfred Grixti shed light on the excessive cocaine use in Malta, stating that they heard stories of people using during Holy Communion, Confirmation and even Baptism parties.

Croatia will clash with favourites Brazil on Friday 9th December at 4PM while the Netherlands will take on Argentina at 8PM. On Saturday, dark horse Morocco will face Fernando Santos’ Portugal in the afternoon while England will go head-to-head with reigning champions France in the evening.

The odds currently put Brazil as favourites to take the World Cup home at 9/5, with champions France coming in second at 9/2 however, considering everything that went down this World Cup season, we still anticipate a couple of surprises coming our way.

Describing the situation, which took place at a government school, the mother stated that she either had the option to enter on her own and leave the father and two children outside or else enter with the father and leave the children with a security official at the reception desk.

She went on to recount how her child burst into tears at the fact because “she was so looking forward to show us her chair, desk, classroom, the class elf,” going on to call for an immediate change to the school’s policy. In her Facebook post, the mother stated that her child joined a choir of other crying children who could not show their parents their classroom due to the policy.

She concluded by appealing to the school to “accept it’s wrong and CHANGE THE POLICY.”

What do you make of this?

Sex before marriage banned for locals & visitors in Indonesia

Sex before marriage banned for locals & visitors in Indonesia

On Tuesday, Indonesia’s Parliament approved a new criminal code which bans sex before marriage for locals & foreigns alike, with a penalty of up to one year in prison.

The new law received support from all political parties and also prohibits cohabitation between unmarried couples. However, it will not come into effect for another three years to allow the implementation regulations to be drafted.

Despite unanimous approval in Indonesian parliament, the people’s response has been mixed, with the decision triggering protests in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta.

Critics of the law have called it part of the erosion of civil liberties in what considered the world’s third-largest democracy.
