Refunds for all Maltese residents forced to quarantine in hotel says Bernard Grech
Sep 15 2021 Share

Following public outcry for Maltese residents to no longer quarantine in hotels after coming from dark red countries, Opposition Leader Bernard Grech issued a statement calling for refunds to all who had to do so. In a tweet, Grech said that besides changing the policy following pressure from the Nationalist Party, Deputy Prime Minister Chris Fearne should see to the refunds of all the residents. 

He concluded his tweet saying that the government should stop issuing rules that cannot stand up to human rights scrutiny. The health minister is expected to address these concerns and amend the regulations today 15th September 2021 following the rise in stories in which Maltese residents expressed concerns over the quarantine system for travellers. Do you agree with Grech’s refund statement?

Man charged with masturbating near kid’s playground released on bail

Man charged with masturbating near kid’s playground released on bail
Sep 15 2021 Share

A 36-year-old man who allegedly masturbated in public in the vicinity of a children’s playground has been released on bail against a personal guarantee of €500. Ahmed Osman Ibrahim, a Marsa resident from Somalia, was arraigned before magistrate Lara Lanfranco on charges of public indecency on Tuesday. Police inspector Sarah Zerafa revealed that police were informed by two passing children who spotted him committing the sexual act near the Paola playground. 

Lawyer and legal aid of the accused Joe Bonnici entered a plea of not guilty on Ibrahim’s behalf and requested bail. The inspector stated she would have insisted on treatment had he admitted the charge but things become more worrying when the accused stated that there were more ‘black people like me in the area.’ He claimed to have run away from police to catch a bus but there was no bus stop close by. Apart from bail and the personal guarantee, Ibrahim was placed under curfew and ordered to sign a bail book three times a week.

Manchester United stunned by Young Boys despite Ronaldo goal

Sep 15 2021 Share

The first set of this season’s Champions League matches took place yesterday, but none shocked the fans as much as Young Boys vs Manchester United. The game was actually placed on the 6:45 time slot, as everyone thought that it would be one sided but fans and higher ups were soon shocked. Young Boys managed to beat a 10-man Manchester United after scoring the winner in the 95th minute.

Manchester United started off the match in good fashion, bossing possession stats and challenging the goal keeper multiple times. Cristiano Ronaldo scored the first goal of the game from an exquisite Bruno Fernandes assist. The game was going well for the Red Devils until the 35th minute when right back Aaron Wan Bissaka got himself sent off after a dubious challenge.

Manchester United managed to survive the first half but couldn’t stop the Swiss champions in the second half. Moumi Ngamaleu scored Young Boys’ first goal after a nice play from the team. Young Boys continued pressurizing the Manchester United defence and finally found their opening in the 95th minute when Jesse Lingard single handedly assisted  Theoson Siebatcheu an open goal.

The other group F game between Villareal and Atalanta ended in a 2-2 draw. Manchester United will be hoping for a good result in their  next Champions League match against Villareal to avoid a shock early exit.
