River of Love pastor Gordon Manché files new criminal report against artistic director

River of Love pastor Gordon Manché files new criminal report against artistic director
Jun 16 2023 Share

Teatru Malta artistic director Sean Buhagiar has been questioned by the Malta Police Force after River of Love leader Gordon Manché filed a criminal report against him.

The artistic leader’s criminal report is the latest legal situation pursued by Manché, after the River of Love leader reported him to the police for calling him an “asshole” and revisiting a joke previously made by satirist Matt Bonanno.

In a recent social media post made by Buhagiar, the national theatre company boss called the situation “alarmingly serious”, shining a light on the fact that Manché was using legal means to challenge and stifle free speech and satirical expression.

Could we stand up and fight back? with satire? Imagine if every comedian, artist, writer, and creative practitioner called him “Malta’s biggest asshole” and humorously suggested to whimsically “relocate River of Love to Buġibba, then carpet bomb”, Buhagiar wrote on Facebook.

The theatre veteran is only the latest target of the River of Love pastor, previously filing charges against Bis-Serjetà creator Matt Bonanno and comedian Daniel Xuereb, saying that “this cannot be tolerated.”

Comedians across Malta have come forward in support of the three individuals in question, asserting that satire is a tool which should not be threatened by law and such means of  free speech should not be challenged.

Here’s what the Love Island Villa looked like before the show

Here's what the Love Island Villa looked like before the show
Jun 15 2023 Share
After a few weeks of watching Love Island Malta, you probably know the villa inside out… but a little bit of digging on the good old internet can actually give you a look of how the now-familiar villa looked pre-glow-up. 👀
No turf, traditional furniture and major lack of cannoli & milk artworks on the wall, the old villa got a major makeover ahead of the popular series’ and you could say it is unrecognisable.
 
Taking a few snaps from an old property listing, you can barely pick out the resemblance when comparing it to snapshots of the currently ongoing TV show.
 
Love Island Malta first went live on 14th May 2023, immediately becoming a national phenomenon and the subject of discussion across the country. With a few weeks left and some major drama picking up, we can’t wait to see what else is in store.
 
What do you think of the villa? 👀
