T&C's Apply Maltese still stand behind Ukraine MATTHEW AGIUS THE man who blew the whistle on the Transport Malta driving corrup- tion scandal has written to the mag- istrate compiling evidence to explain that he had fled the Maltese islands because he feared for his life. In an application filed on Tues- day afternoon, the lawyer repre- senting Adel Ali Hassan - who provided interpreter services to Arabic, French, Italian and Hebrew speaking driving test candidates at Transport Malta - claims that an unnamed high ranking state offi- cial at the Presidential palace had warned his client to "be careful, be- cause you're treading on many toes and they will do what they did to Daphne to you." JAMES DEBONO TWO-THIRDS of the Maltese believe that the Euro- pean Union should continue to show solidarity with Ukraine, a Eurobarometer survey on EU challenges and priorities shows. But while support for economic sanctions against Russia remains high, support for financing the sup- ply of weapons to Ukraine has dropped from 74% in April 2022 to 51% in August 2023. In what could be a sign of weariness amidst rising inflation and a decreased media spotlight on atroc- ities committed by Russia in Ukraine, the Maltese like other Europeans are becoming less enthusi- astic in their support for the purchasing weapons delivered to Ukraine.

The MFA's decision followed a rec- ommendation made by the associa- tion's Ethics and Compliance Commit- tee. The decision is subject to appeal. In a statement on Tuesday the MFA said Vittoriosa will start their 2023/24 Amateur League Group B campaign with the three points less. JAMES DEBONO MIDI wants to renew a permit for the restoration of the 17th century Lazzaretto complex in Manoel Is- land and its re-use as a mixed development, including a casino. The Planning Authority had approved the permit in 2012 but was officially issued in 2016 following the submission of a construction management plan. The permit will expire in 2024. The permit as approved envisaged the develop- ment of 54 apartments, 6,320sq.m of retail space, a 2,868sq.m casino and a 1,950sq.m hostel.
