“This is unacceptable”; St. Julian’s mayor shares concern about Paceville fights

"This is unacceptable"; St. Julian's mayor shares concern about Paceville dangers
Jun 27 2022 Share

Earlier today, St. Julian’s mayor Anthony Buttigieg took to Facebook to express his deep concern and frustration regarding the current state of Paceville, stating that the situation is not acceptable.

Various local figures and organisations have expressed their concern after a video of a Paceville altercation began to make the rounds on social media. The video in question shows a group of men attacking a number of security guards outside Havana Club Malta, with one of the assailants picking up and throwing a metal barrier.

Buttigieg stated that as a parent, this is worrying for their children, who are exposed to such danger whilst out for fun. From a citizen’s perspective, the St. Julian’s mayor expressed concern with the fact that “these people are not breaking the law but instilling a ‘jungle culture’ amongst us”.

He went on to highlight that such actions are a devastating blow to the business owners’ investments into Malta’s touristic product, going on to call for an urgent meeting with the police commissioner.

Johnny Depp may be returning to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise after talks with Disney following the actor’s trial win against Amber Heard.

The 59-year-old Depp portrayed beloved pirate Jack Sparrow in 5 major motion pictures over the past 15 years and was dropped from the franchise in 2018. Tabloid platform Poptopic reported that Depp has been in talks with the entertainment giant about a potential $300 million deal after his defamation trial victory against Amber Heard.

Disney are reportedly looking to make amends with Depp and reached out themselves to see if he would be interested in returning as Jack Sparrow. The deal may also include a spin-off series on Disney Plus surrounding ‘the early life of the Captain of the Black Pearl.’

Depp had once told the jury that he would not return to working with Disney after he was removed from the Pirates franchise, with his legal team revealing that he lost out on $22 million as a result of Heard’s Washington Post 2018 op-ed.
