PN Court Case Over Vitals Money Dismissed By Judge
Jul 11 2024 Share

Judge Toni Abela has rejected a request from Opposition leader Bernard Grech and MP Adrian Delia to compel the State Advocate to reclaim funds lost in a fraudulent hospitals deal.

Abela stated that it was beyond the court’s authority to direct the State Advocate’s actions.

The case arose late last year after a court nullified the hospitals deal, declaring it fraudulent. The Opposition MPs sought a court order for the State Advocate to recover up to €400 million in taxpayer money paid to the deal’s concessionaires, initially Vitals and later Steward.

Following the judgment, Grech made a brief statement outside the courthouse, asserting that it was now the State Advocate’s responsibility to pursue legal action to recover the fraudulently spent funds.

He criticised the government for not taking adequate steps to reclaim the money given to the private companies. Grech added that the PN would review the judgment to decide their next steps.

Age Of Medical Consent Being Lowered To 14

Jul 11 2024 Share

The age of consent for minors to access particular medical procedures is being lowered from 16 to 14.

The discussion over this bill started in parliament started being debated and discussed in parliament last Wednesday. The bill will aim to amend the Health Act.

As of present day, the law allowed minors aged 16 or over the right to consent to or refuse to partake in a medical procedure only if a medical practitioner thought the minor had sufficient maturity and understanding of the situation in hand.

If the minor refused the procedure but the medical practitioner thought the treatment was urgently required, the refusal could be denied in order to go along with the treatment.

The new law aiming to be passed by parliament, will lower the age of consent to 14 and extends the phrase treatments to include “psychiatric treatment, counselling, therapy, social work and youth work.”

The bill was brought forward by Social Welfare Minister Michael Falzon and was supported by Nationalist MP Graziella Attard Previ, who both described the potential law as the ’empowerment’ of children.
