Tattoo artist and founder of ‘The Mad Tatter’ Dylan Agius shares his concerns following last nights’ celebrations in Hamrun. Dylan starts his message by firstly expressing that he is still proud to be Maltese and is happy for Hamrun for their victory. He goes on to state however that he does not support those who are irresponsible and have no value towards life. 

 

 

 

He comments on how the authorities allowed a large amount of people to gather in one space but then does not allow tattoo shops to operate. He emphasises the suffering experienced by club owners and businesses. He then goes on to say that should another lockdown occur, the doors to his shop will be left open. He states he respected the authorities when lockdown was in order but cannot do so due to the evident disrespect to businesses such as his.

Malta’s ban on British children due to COVID-19 makes international headlines

Malta’s ban on British children due to COVID-19 makes international headlines
Jul 2 2021 Share

Malta makes international headlines after its COVID-19 health measure concerning travelling Britons leaves families distraught. As of Wednesday, travellers from the UK aged 12 and above are only permitted to enter Malta if they show proof of being fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine. Those between ages of 5 and 11 can travel if they accompany their fully vaccinated parents and show evidence of negative PCR tests taken within 72 hours before arrival. However, the UK is not vaccinating under-18s. 

The requirement of UK arrivals between ages of 12 and 17 thus becomes an outright ban. One woman from London wrote to the High Commission how a 12-year-old girl is being left distraught as she cannot be a bridesmaid in August. 

The situation is made worse according to British High Commissioner to Malta Cathy Ward as authorities revealed they will only be accepting printed letters sent by NHS as proof. 

Anyone planning to use the NHS app to demonstrate full vaccination is being turned away at UK airports or on the border to Malta. With Malta placed on the UK’s green list, a surge in demand for holidays on the island was inevitable and noted.

Father who forced son to have sex with prostitutes gets 8 year jail sentence
Jul 2 2021 Share

A 65-year-old father’s 8-year prison sentence has been confirmed by the Court of Appeal after he was found guilty of forcing his 7-year-old son to engage in sexual activities with prostitutes in order not to ‘become’ gay. The man from Siggiewi’s sentence was given in February and has been since then confirmed, with the man having been arraigned for the first time five years ago after the prostitutes reported the case to Agenzija Appogg. 

One of the women reports how the father urged her to have oral sex with the 7-year-old, leading to her fainting and wanting to commit suicide. The man was also reported to yell and beat his son if he did not get an erection whilst also threatening to send him to a children’s home should he tell anyone. The boy was also reported to have been called slurs, possessing pornography on his tablet and confirmed to be in need of lots of therapeutical assistance.

What is sure is that such weather invites beachgoers to cool off from the heat and sweat. Health authorities strongly advise staying protected and avoiding the sun at its worst hours and by staying hydrated.
