University of Malta to hold separate graduation ceremony for unvaccinated students

University of Malta students to hold separate graduation ceremony for unvaccinated students
Nov 13 2021 Share

The University of Malta has reached to its students to reveal that it may hold another graduation ceremony for students who have not yet received their vaccine. The COVID-19 regulations allowed that only vaccinated attendants are allowed entry as unvaccinated students did not have the possibility to attend.

UOM has sent out an email regarding a ceremony for unvaccinated students which will be held in December, telling students that they “may choose to be present for an occasion to be held in December 2021, wherein non-vaccinated graduates will be handed their certificate. Further details regarding the latter option, should you opt for this, shall be communicated at a later stage.”

For this to happen, the institution’s unvaccinated students must accept its offer for a separate ceremony, with some students frustrated at the fact that they will not be able to graduate with their classmates.

Cannabis reform will create “drug abuse culture”, PN says

Cannabis reform will create "drug abuse culture", PN says
Nov 13 2021 Share

A recent statement by the Nationalist Party has claimed that Malta’s cannabis reform will “normalise drug abuse and give rise to an increase in drug abuse.”

It states that the party does not endorse having Malta develop a prevalent drug abuse culture, despite PN leader Bernard Grech’s recent claims that the government amended their proposal based on what he had said.

Grech and the PN’s statements were met with criticism from the opposite end of the spectrum, with Reforms Minister Owen Bonnici stating that “confusion reigns supreme with the Opposition” while the Labour Party itself posted a statement calling Grech a “flip-flopper with no sense of leadership or direction.”

What do you make of this situation?
