If the paperwork does not ar- rive at the Directorate for Phar- maceutical Affairs before that time, approval will be given the next day, delaying the treat- ment by several hours. The issue first came to light when Break the Taboo Malta, an online campaign platform showcasing stories of women affected badly by the total ban on abortion, published the sto- ry of a woman who was only administered the treatment two days after her ec- topic pregnancy was diagnosed.

BOV CEO Rick Hunkin told MaltaTo- day that the bank did not want to drag the case through the various levels of court litigation, as it wanted to be clear of this "shadow that has been hanging over the bank for a number of years".
