Paola shooter Roderick Cassar to become first person ever charged with femicide in Malta

Estranged husband Roderick Cassar is set to be charged by the police for the fatal shooting of 40-year-old Bernice Cassar in Paola on Monday 22nd November.

42-year-old Cassar will be the first person to be charged with femicide in Malta after the law was introduced earlier this year in the aftermath of Paulina Dembska’s violent murder on New Year’s Day.

Femicide is an aggravated version of the homicide offence, a law which encourages judges to seek harsher sentences for murders which are committed on women because they are female. Cassar was arrested on Wednesday after police spent 17 hours in front of his Qrendi home attempting to convince him to give himself up.

Lawyers Franco Debono and Marion Camilleri are representing Cassar while lawyers Stefano and Marita Pace Dimech are appearing for the victim’s family parte civile.

On Friday, the international day for elimination of violence against women, local activists will gather outside Malta’s police headquarters to ask who will answer for Malta’s femicides.

Stormy weather and heavy winds to close off November in Malta

November is expected to close off with quite the literal bang, with stormy weather, rain showers and heavy winds being forecasted for the next few days.

Local weather page ‘It-Temp Madwarna’ forecasts storms over the weekend and towards the end of November, with ‘Aġġornament tat-temp’ backing up such forecasts. Correcting a previous report, the latter forecasts relatively cloudy weather on Friday, with winds to pick up Saturday with rainy storms and gale force 5 winds.

Malta is expected to be hit with rainfall on Sunday evening, with a 50% chance of rain during the day and a heavy wind warning issued for the afternoon.

Such reports have been corroborated by Malta’s Met Office, with maltairport.com’s 7 Day Forecast predicting thundery showers on Saturday and heavy winds with isolated showers on Sunday.

Japan's dressing room left spotless after national team's World Cup win over Germany

Beyond the incredible first-game win against Germany in the World Cup, the Japanese national team has been making quite a name for itself for the respectable actions conducted by the team and its supporters in Qatar.

On Wednesday, revered sports journalist Fabrizio Romano shared a photo of the Japanese team’s dressing room in immaculate condition after their victory against Germany. The photo went viral within minutes, with supporters from around the world praising the team for leaving the dressing room ‘spotless’.

This kind of conduct is not exclusive to the Japanese team, with clips of Japan’s supporters also going viral after they were caught cleaning up the stadium in the aftermath of Qatar versus Ecuador.

Japan’s national team and their supporters continue to make a name for themselves for their conduct in Qatar. Their next match-up will happen on Sunday 27th November, with Japan set to take on Costa Rica at 11AM.

Hopefully these kinds of actions will be emulated by other teams and supporters at the Qatar World Cup.
