        "body": "The 26th of June is the International Day against Drugs, this same date is also a special day for the OASI Foundation in Gozo as it celebrates its 31st anniversary.\n\nTo celebrate, on Saturday a thanksgiving ceremony was held at the OASI Centre and afterwards everyone was invited to socialise and join in together during the reception.\n\nMr Noel Xerri, Chief Executive of OASI Foundation, and Mr Joe Borg from the Board of Directors awarded Mr Carmel Debono the OASI Foundation award, for his years of service towards OASI and society.Mr Noel Xerri, the Foundation's Chief Executive, opened the event remarking that throughout the past years a decrease in heroin use was noted followed by an increase of people being dependent on using cocaine.\n\nAdditionally, he said, an increase in females who seek help due to a dependency on alcohol was seen.\n\nMr Xerri also mentioned that it is visible that there is no difference between Malta and Gozo and Malta and Europe and that the problem is real. Mr Xerri added that also an additional therapy service offered by OASI Foundation for families consists of giving them the necessary skills as addiction also impacts the family.\n\nHe also made reference to the fact that our society has a mentality that we \"only do what is good for us\" and this could lead to more problems. Mr Xerri closed his message by thanking all the entities, staff, and directors for their help and thanked all the beneficiaries that make use of this service.\n\nMr Joseph Borg, from the Board of Directors, talked about the journey that OASI Foundation went through these 31 years. He added that although it was not an easy journey thanks to the unity and trust between every staff member, volunteer, and the directors this was a success.\n\nHe spoke about the importance of voluntary work and how this work helped and is vital for this sector. He also mentioned that voluntary work is one of the main things that gives him energy and satisfaction.\n\nMr Borg explained that voluntary work also gives hope and courage to those that are going through addiction and it is thanks to this collective work that a change is seen from a person who seeks help at OASI Foundation.\n\nHe added that this is what helps the person be more resilient to face everyday challenges. He concluded by saying that as a country voluntary work should be given more importance and is more acknowledged.\n\nHe concluded by thanking the staff and volunteers for their work.\n\nDr Michael Falzon, Minister for Social Policy and Children's Rights in his message, which was read by Mr Joe Gerada, remarked that resilience, commitment, and determinations are a few of the values which are seen in NGOs that help them keep on going.\n\nDr Falzon also congratulated OASI Foundation on their anniversary and emphasised the fact that they not only offer support to people who are dependent but also are a ray of light and hope to their families.\n\nGozo Bishop Mons. Anton Teuma referred to Freudian studies to explain that people start to experience difficulties due to a lack of attachment which can then be seen in different ways.\n\nHe also stated that although this is so and is considered a crisis in society no one should be trapped in a net where we put the blame and responsibilities on others.\n\nThe Bishop thanked Dun Emmanuel Cordina for his initiative in opening OASI Foundation and thanked the staff that is now continuing on this initiative.\n\nDr Alex Borg commenced his message by questioning what are we doing as citizens to help fight against drug dependency.\n\nFurthermore, Dr Borg mentioned that more education is required to address this problem. He also remarked about the legalisation of cannabis and that one shouldn't refer to the usage of such a drug as \"recreational\" as it would lead to more problems.\n\nMinister for Gozo Clint Camilleri, mentioned the growth which OASI Foundation has made since it started operating and also remarked on the fact that as a Foundation it is \"dynamic and continued to develop.\"\n\nHe also remarked that \"individual egoism in society is a problem that is visibly noted and that social media is impacting society.\"\n\nThe Gozo Minister closed the ceremony by congratulating OASI for their services.\n\nAbigail Camilleri was also present for this event.",

        "title": "Explaining the war to a child",
        "body": "On February 24, the news of Russia invading Ukraine travelled across the world. Having struggled with the health pandemic for the past two years, people were incredulous that yet another catastrophe was about to unfold.\n\nIn times of global instability, people might feel anxious, angry, sad, scared or upset. It is natural that children hear and absorb adults' anxieties and feed off it. It is important to reflect on this and work on ourselves as adults, to offer our children a sense of safety and security in these trying times.\n\nThere is no right or wrong way to tackle things. However, there are some general suggestions that might be helpful.\n\nChildren are nowadays exposed to various sources of information, including conversations at school, reading articles on Facebook, watching videos on TikTok or reading statuses on Facebook. They talk among themselves and build an image of war in their head. This might make them view the world in a negative way. Thus, it is important to have discussions at home in a safe and comforting way.\n\nIt is understandable that parents might want to protect their children from such horrible topics. However, it is important that parents are prepared to tackle the matter, if addressed.\n\nIgnoring the topic might leave children feeling frightened and lost, which might affect their well-being. It is also important to look out for indications of children's anxiety, such as change in eating/sleeping patterns, inexplicable tummy aches and headaches, and being more clingy than usual.\n\nIt is also important that as a parent, you figure out what message you want your children to learn before you start off the conversation. Some parents might tell their children that the war is far away and we, in Malta, are safe. Others might want to start a healthy discussion on politics and tell their children some facts about this war and how it originated.\n\nIt is okay if, as parents, you feel anxious. These are natural responses to such a difficult situation. Parents do not need to have all the answers. Some children might ask questions which you would not have the response to. You can think things through together. Children do not need someone with all the answers, they need our presence and support.\n\nHere are some suggestions for how you can tackle the war discussion with your children:\n\n1. Ask them how they are feeling\n\nAsk your children if they are feeling scared or worried regarding the war. If they answer yes, reassure them, normalise their feelings and validate their concerns. If they say 'no', you are letting them know that if they eventually feel scared or worried, it is okay, and they can come to you with their thoughts and feelings.\n\n2. Check in with your children\n\nRather than forcing them to talk about the war, check in with them to see what they know and how they are feeling. If they open up, listen to what they need to say. Some children might be suffering in silence. Thus, it is important to check in and let them lead the conversation. On the other hand, some children might not be interested in talking about it because they are not concerned. There is no need to force them to talk. Rather, reassure them that you are there for them.\n\n3. Follow-up conversations\n\nThe war is something that is developing every day. You might, therefore, want to check in with your children to see if they have new things they want to talk about.\n\nNo one knows your children better than you! Reflect and think about how best to talk to them. Be sensitive to their feelings and use age-appropriate approaches. A five-year-old child might understand things better through play, while a 12-year-old can understand if you talk to them. Be patient if they are repetitive. Some children are reassured through repetition.\n\n5. Use reliable sources\n\nExplain to your children that some things online are not reliable. Make sure you read information that is from a dependable news source. It is okay if you do not have all the answers. You might use this as an opportunity to research some information with your children.\n\n6. Do not spread hate speech\n\nWars might bring various opinions. When talking to your children, try not to use negative words against a particular person or country. Speaking against a particular nationality might fuel your children to go to school and call students from that country/nationality names. Malta is a very multinational country and we need to be aware that there are children of various nationalities in our children's schools. All children deserve to feel safe at school, and you, as a parent, are the lead example your children will follow.\n\n7. Be aware of media and social media\n\nMonitor what your children do on social media. There are videos and articles which are full of worrying headlines and alarming images. You might want to go through your children's social media accounts to see what they are watching. When the children are under five years old, it might be a good idea not to watch news related to the war. With older children, work on having a positive enough relationship with your child, such that they feel comfortable to come to you if they see something that worries them.\n\n8. Do not lie to your children\n\nChildren know, or will find out, if you are inventing information. They may consequently conclude that they cannot trust you in the future. Do not make unrealistic promises. It is okay to tell your child that they are safe in Malta. However, you cannot promise that the war will stop or that no one will be hurt.\n\n9. Help children express themselves\n\nWhile older children might be comfortable talking, younger children might not be able to express their feelings and fears through language. Encourage them to show you how they are feeling through play or drawings. Spend time with them and let them show you what is going on inside their mind through their projective play.\n\n10. Stick to a routine\n\nIt is important not to change structures and schedules children are used to. A structured day gives children stability and reassurance. Continue sending your children to school, extracurricular activities, and celebrating birthdays and special occasions.\n\n11. Self-care\n\nAlthough it is important to take care of your children, it is also vital to take care of yourself. If you are feeling anxious, it might be too hard for you to check in on your children. Make sure you have a good support system: friends and family with whom you can share your anxieties. Be mindful of how news on the war is affecting you. If you are feeling down reading information about the war, set boundaries with your loved ones. It is okay to tell your friends that you do not wish to talk about it.\n\n12. Seek professional help\n\nIf you see that you are feeling overwhelmed and anxious, you might want to consider seeking professional help. It might be useful for you, as an adult, to speak to a counsellor to find ways in which you can feel more supported. If your child is very anxious, you can ask their school counsellor for support. The counsellor's role would be to provide your child a safe space where they can process what is going on and find healthy ways to deal with their anxieties.\n\nThe war is beyond our control. What is in our control is how we deal with our thoughts and feelings about the war, and how we transmit a sense of safety and serenity to our children.",

        "title": "Rosianne Cutajar pushes back against restrictive abortion law: 'No woman should risk losing her life'",
        "body": "Rosianne Cutajar is the only MP to speak against Malta's restrictive abortion law in the wake of Andrea Prudente's case\n\nNo Maltese woman should risk losing her life because of Malta's restrictive abortion law, Labour MP Rosianne Cutajar said, adding women need to have peace of mind.\n\nWith reference to the case of American woman Andrea Prudente who was denied an abortion by Maltese doctors despite having an unviable pregnancy, Cutajar said this served as an eye-opener.\n\n\"Andrea Prudente's case was an eye-opener to those who believe that abortion is done capriciously... abortion is sometimes suggested by doctors for medical reasons like her case,\" Cutajar said during an adjournment speech in parliament on Monday.\n\nReiterating her pro-choice stand, Cutajar broke the deafening silence from Maltese MPs on abortion in the wake of Prudente's case, which became an international sensation. The only other politician to speak up was Labour MEP Cyrus Engerer.\n\nMalta is the only EU member state with a complete ban on abortion. The law does not make exceptions.\n\nPrudente broke her waters at 16 weeks and although doctors at Mater Dei Hospital told her the pregnancy was not viable they could not carry out an abortion because the foetus still had a heartbeat. Prudente was being treated with antibiotics to minimise the risk of contracting sepsis, a blood infection, that could have put her life in danger.\n\nEventually, Prudente was airlifted to Spain where her pregnancy was terminated.\n\nCutajar referred to the judicial protest filed on Monday morning by 135 doctors who have called for the abortion ban to be struck down.\n\n\"These doctors know that there are circumstances where an abortion is medically necessary. I am convinced, hand on heart, that no one wants to see a woman lose her life because of Malta's restrictive abortion law,\" she said, warning that Prudente's case is not unique as she brandished a photo of Savita Halappanavar, an Indian woman in Ireland, who died from sepsis after her request for an abortion was denied on legal grounds.\n\nThe Savita case paved the way for the introduction of abortion in Ireland.\n\n\"Every woman in Malta has to have her mind at peace that her life will not be put at risk if things do not go as planned. Women's health must be a priority,\" Cutajar said. \"No woman should be put in a situation where she can lose her life, or worry that this might happen to her during pregnancy.\"\n\nCutajar called for a discussion on abortion. \"Let us have the courage to speak about these subjects not just as women but as Maltese and European citizens.\"\n\nBut the Labour MP also took a pot shot at European Parliament President Roberta Metsola, accusing her of hypocrisy on the subject.\n\nShe was referring to Metsola's reaction to the US Supreme Court's decision to strike down the constitutional right to an abortion. Metsola tweeted last Saturday: \"The regression of women's rights in the US, and in other places around the globe, is a worrying trend. The European Parliament will keep standing up for women, equality and liberty.\"\n\nCutajar pounced on Metsola's apparent double act on abortion. \"Where were you just 24 hours before when we had an American woman, who was risking her life because of Malta's restrictive abortion law? Roberta Metsola plays the conservative card in Malta but adopts a liberal stand when it comes to European and American women.\"\n\nCutajar said she dislikes the silence among politicians in Malta on the Prudente case but was equally taken aback by Metsola's \"hypocrisy\".\n\n\"Charity begins at home... if you are so taken aback by what happened in the US, why don't you check what is happening in your country first,\" the Labour MP told Metsola.\n\nThe Nationalist Party has etched in its statute the belief that life begins from conception, which makes it against abortion. PN leader Bernard Grech last year had gone on record saying there was no place in the PN for officials who were openly pro-choice.\n\nHe later moderated the stand after Metsola embraced the European Parliament's predominant pro-choice stand when she was elected president by fellow MEPs.",

        "body": "Justice Minister Jonathan Attard has pledged to \"investigate and act\" if justice was hindered when lawyers accused of attempting to bribe a journalist were cleared by a court on Monday because of a mistake by the Attorney General's office.\n\nThe minister was asked in parliament whether he still had confidence in Attorney General Victoria Buttigieg after Yorgen Fenech's lawyers Gianluca Caruana Curran and Charles Mercieca were cleared on a technicality.\n\nThe charges were dropped due to the prosecution citing the incorrect law when bringing charges against the two lawyers, who were accused of trying to bribe Times of Malta journalist Ivan Martin.\n\nOne of Daphne Caruana Galizia's sons has called for an independent inquiry into the AG's \"ability and willingness to prosecute corruption\" and NGO Repubblika has called for Buttigieg's resignation.\n\nAsked by Nationalist Party MP Mark Anthony Sammut whether the Attorney General still enjoyed his confidence after the \"mess\" that had unfolded in court, Attard said that he would not comment on the specifics of the case, as it may prejudice a future appeal.\n\nHowever, he added, that in any situation that had to do with upholding the rule of law, the government was committed to maintaining its reform.\n\n\"In a general sense, what I will say as Justice Minister is that I will insist that our reform process will not be hampered,\" he said.\n\n\"If it results that things did not proceed as they should have, we will investigate and take the necessary action.\"\n\nAttard refused to weigh in on the Attorney General's wider track record of decisions that have been criticised.\n\nLast year, the public inquiry into Daphne Caruana Galizia's murder slammed Buttigieg for facilitating the signing of an agreement with Electrogas without parliament's approval, back when she was still a lawyer at the AG's office.\n\nIn January, the Malta police union sarcastically invited Buttigieg \"to the next gunfight,\" over her decision to drop attempted murder charges against a suspect in the 2010 HSBC hold-up.\n\nA month later, a court ordered the arrest of Darren Debono, known as It-Topo, over his refusal to testify, despite reaching a plea deal with the Attorney General in exchange for the attempted murder charges going away.",

        "body": "Even as prices continue to rise, orders for US-made, big-ticket manufactured goods were surprisingly strong in May, helped by demand for cars and military aircraft, according to government data released on Monday.\n\nDurable goods orders rose 0.7 per cent in the month, to $267.2 billion, the seventh increase in the past eight months, the Commerce Department reported.\n\nThat was a far stronger result than economists had been expecting, and even excluding the transportation sector, orders also rose 0.7 per cent, the report said.\n\nThe increase points to solid demand even as US inflation rages at a 40-year high, but economists warn uncertainty caused by the war in Ukraine may cool business investment plans, which could tamp down orders in coming months.\n\nThe US Federal Reserve is on an aggressive campaign to raise interest rates and to cool the economy and douse inflation fires but firms and households still have plenty of cash and pent up demand, in part due to the supply snarls throughout the recovery from the pandemic downturn.\n\nIan Shepherdson of Pantheon Macroeconomics said he \"would be surprised by an outright decline\" in orders \"given that firms are still cash-rich, in aggregate, the labour market is still very tight, and the backlog of capex (capital expenditures) - especially replacement - from the previous cycle is still enormous\".\n\nMotor vehicle orders rose 0.5 per cent, while defence aircraft and parts surged 8.1 per cent. But in the civilian arena, aircraft orders fell 1.1 per cent, the data showed.\n\nIn the electronics sector, which has struggled amid a global shortage of computer chips, communications equipment jumped 2.0 per cent, but orders for computers fell 0.7 per cent.",

        "body": "The woman, who was still underage, was secretly filmed having sex with a DVD of the act being sold in shops\n\nFour men who surreptitiously filmed an underage girl having sex in a Luqa garage have been ordered to pay the victim almost €33,000 in compensation.\n\nThe judgment attributes guilt to all the four men involved in the production of the footage and its distribution to DVD shops.\n\nThe First Hall of the Civil Court had last year ordered two of the men to pay nearly €33,000 in compensation but the Appeals Court decided that the two men cleared at first instance were equally responsible for the severe trauma the illicit video had on its victim.\n\nThe Appeals Court presided by Chief Justice Mark Chetcuti and judges Joseph R. Micallef and Tonio Mallia said the men must pay compensation for the psychological trauma suffered by the woman.\n\nThe girl did not know she was being filmed and the DVD of the sexual act ended up being sold in DVD shops and then sent to her mother attached to an anonymous letter. The girl suffered post-traumatic stress disorder as a result.\n\nThe incident happened in 2006 when the girl was in a relationship with one of the four men. As she was having sex with him in a Luqa garage, another man was hiding behind a curtain filmed the entire episode.\n\nThe footage was circulated via a DVD store run by one of the other men, who had in turn acquired it from the fourth man, the boyfriend's cousin.\n\nA copy ended up in the possession of the girl's mother and a copy was also sent to a man whom the girl had started dating.\n\nThe police were called in to investigate and charges were filed against the four men, who pleaded not guilty to producing and circulating the indecent material.\n\nHer boyfriend at the time claimed the woman knew the sex act was being filmed while the others claimed they did not know the film was shot secretly. The court rubbished the boyfriend's claim.\n\nAn assessment of the victim certified that she had suffered 30% psychological disability although a more recent examination by a court-appointed expert concluded that the permanent damage caused was 6% disability.\n\nThe court noted that the different conclusions were explained as being the effect of the passage of time, as well as the daily medication the woman was taking to deal with her post-traumatic stress disorder.\n\nThe woman had since established a stable relationship, embraced motherhood and had also taken up a regular job, the court observed.\n\nAccording to one of the psychiatrists who examined her, the woman was depressed and stayed indoors so as not to face people since she started to believe that people in the street were talking about her and mocking her.\n\nThe original judgment was appealed by all parties, with the woman expecting higher compensation for the trauma.\n\nThe judges ruled that all four men had contributed to the trauma caused when the DVD was circulated. None of them could deny the link between the action committed and the harm suffered by the woman, the court said.\n\nThe judges, however, turned down the woman's request for the compensation to be based on the 30% disability assessment.\n\nThey ordered that all four men pay equal parts of the €32,656 compensation for personal and psychological damage caused to the victim of their criminal wrongdoing.\n\nLawyers Veronique Dalli and Andrew Saliba assisted the woman.",

        "body": "Amendments to the IVF law proposed by the government have cleared the committee stage and are now one vote away from becoming law\n\nChanges proposed to the in-vitro fertilisation law by the government, including the introduction of embryo genetic testing, cleared parliament's committee stage on Monday.\n\nThe amendments passed with minimal changes, paving the way for pre-implantation genetic testing of embryos to become part of the IVF process. The last step is the final vote at Third Reading stage in the plenary.\n\nTwo protocols drawn up by the Embryo Protection Authority, which were tabled by Health Minister Chris Fearne alongside the legal amendments, will now be discussed by parliament's Health Committee. One of the protocols includes criteria outlining eligibility for PGT and which inheritable disorders can be tested for.\n\nThe protocol currently lists nine diseases and conditions, including Huntington's.\n\nAn amendment proposed by the Opposition includes the need for protocols to be introduced or amended by Legal Notice.\n\nAn initial proposal by the Opposition tightening the reference to PGT was immediately shot down by government MPs until compromise was reached that did not change the thrust of government's proposal to allow specialists to choose the best care possible for their patients.",
