It has been nine months since the death of Miriam Pace and her husband Carmel has commemorated her loss in a post on Facebook, saying that the tragedy that has hit their family on the 2nd of March, will continue to be experienced every day.

On March 2nd, the body of Miriam Pace was found under the debris of her house that collapsed due to ongoing excavation works on an adjacent site in Ħamrun.

The search and rescue operation took more than eight hours. The body was located around 10 pm and extracted from under the debris half an hour later.

In his post on Facebook, Carmel Pace wrote how on that day he lost his wife, his children a mother, her family a sister and for many a sincere friend but on that same day Carmel Pace noted how he lost his home.

“This loss was due to the greed of others,” said Pace. “All is forgotten. So what if a house collapsed? For many their lives did not change and they can still hug their loved ones when they arrive home,” continued saying Pace.

For the past months the family of Miriam Pace has been calling for a public inquiry about the tragedy that hit their lives. The lawyer representing the Pace Family said that they are calling for the necessary consultations so that the board can be appointed.

Back in March Prime Minister Abela had declared that he was angry and hurt and said he was going to set up a committee to make the necessary changes and that this committee would be working in urgency.
