Police investigating death of previously missing man - last Facebook post reveals details

Nicholas Camilleri, who was reported missing a couple of days ago, was found dead in a room near Ghajn Tuffieha in Mgarr just last night. 

Camilleri’s last social media status before he was found dead went into some of the ordeals he was experiencing prior to his passing. Police found the lifeless body of Camilleri at around 8:30pm yesterday and was identified as the 55-year-old immediately.

In the note, Camilleri explained how he was a victim of domestic violence, and even went on to sarcastically thank his lawyer for not initiating court proceedings on his behalf. He also explained how due to an affair his wife was having, he ended up contracting a sexually transmitted disease. 

He also accused his wife of bringing in doctors whom she knew, being a nurse, who would not address his injuries he suffered due to domestic violence. 

Police are not outright excluding foul play as cause of the death, but do not suspect it to be the case. Investigations are ongoing. 

Rest in Peace Nicholas.

Heat dome set to cover Malta at 39°C as summer officially starts

Heat dome set to cover Malta at 39°C as summer officially starts

We can officially say that summer has started as the seasons shift to the one Malta is most renowned for. And the return is set to come with a blazing week as temperatures are set to feel like a whopping 39°C. 

Today’s temperature is set to feel like 32°C, which is already quite hot for summer day 001. However, as the week progresses, the temperatures are only set to increase up to the 39th mark. 

And the nights are not set to give us much respite as they will still register a blistering 27°C. These are being caused by a persisting high pressure over the Central Mediterranean as other European countries battle heatwaves and even forest fires. 

Such heat domes, as they are known, occur when high pressure in the atmosphere forces air down, compressing and warming it. The warm air is trapped and thus forms a dome like phenomenon. 

The UV index will also strike at a formidable 11 throughout the week, and thus protection from sunlight is highly recommended along with staying hydrated. People are urged to stay inside at midday as Malta braces for a blistering week.

Parliament unanimously approves femicide bill

Parliament unanimously approves femicide bill

A bill which will add femicide as an aggravating offence to the Criminal Code has passed all stages of parliament, with unanimous approval at Third Reading stage. 

President George Vella is now required to sign the bill for it to become law after parliament approved it on Monday afternoon. The bill was amended during committee stage to clarify that the perpetrator could be anyone, whether male, female or otherwise. 

Justice Minister Jonathan Attard put forward an amendment after several Nationalist MPs brought up the issue during the second reading. 

For a homicide to be considered as femicide in court, the victim must be a woman and must have been killed because she was a woman. Domestic violence, honour killings, religious practices such as genital mutilation, sexual abuse and misogynistic intentions all fall under the law. 

The bill was put forth following the murder of Paulina Dembska earlier this year by Abner Aquilina. The murder prompted many women’s rights activists to push for femicide to become a law.
