Newly appointed PM Robert Abela has been given a 30-day ultimatum to take a number of measures by an activist speaking at a event marking Daphne Caruana’s assassination.
Speaking in front of the Daphne protest memorial in Valletta activist Clemence Dujardin said that a cabinet reshuffle didn’t make their demands disappear.
She said that Konrad Mizzi, Keith Schembri, and Joseph Muscat are still free. All three deny wrongdoing.
The Occupy Justice activist demanded that within 30 days Robert Abela:
- Makes a public apology to Daphne Caruana Galizia’s family
- Fires anyone in public office who insulted Caruana Galizia
- Presents a motion of no-confidence in the Attorney General
- Fires the Police Commissioner
- Publishes Neville Gafa’s contract
- Apologises to all activists for the lies that have been circulated about them
- To engage with police to close groups on social media which harass activists
- To set standards for fair reporting
- To commit to sit for regular interviews with the independent media
Activist Jeremy Gingell who also spoke at the event said that Joseph Muscat will be remembered for the total disaster he caused.
He said that everyone needs to join in the fight for what’s right.
Gingell said that in a corrupt state, the environment is first to suffer. He asked those present to think of projects such as the one in Ħ’Attard.
“A corrupt country isn’t healthy. A corrupt country is a sick country,” said Gingell. He added that it’s the peoples’ strength which generates wealth, rather than corruption.
According to Gingell, a change in the PL leadership doesn’t mean that things will change. He also said that in light of the absence of a credible opposition, the people have to take it upon themselves to fight for justice.
