A stumbling block to a final de- cision by the FATF, which de- cides whether Malta is placed on a damning list of untrustworthy financial jurisdictions, concerns an institutional deadlock imposed by the country in the Council of Eu- rope's parliamentary assembly, over the definition of 'ille- gal sports betting'.

MT3 Q&A TRUTH IS OF NO COLOUR WWW.MALTATODAY.COM.MT KURT SANSONE A majority of people disagree with the decriminalisation of abortion, although opposition is less pro- nounced among the young and tertiary educated, a MaltaToday survey finds. The results show that 66.9% of people disagree with decriminalis- ing the termination of pregnancy, while 18% are in favour and 15.1% are unsure. The survey was carried out be- tween 31 May and 4 June, almost three weeks after independent MP Marlene Farrugia presented a Bill to strike off abortion from the Criminal Code. Another survey carried out in April had found a relative major- ity of 46.9% were against sending women who terminate a pregnan- cy to jail. The survey had specifi- cally asked about jail time not de- criminalisation. However, it also found a majority agreed with jail time for medical professionals who carry out abor- tions. 18% say they now support decriminalisation of abortion Digital nomads good.. asylum seekers bad PGS 12-13 Malta veto on sports betting rules stumbling block in FATF review PAGE 2
