Do your duty – Varist tells Police and Courts

"These are difficult times"

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Following what can be called as the Longest Day in Maltese Politics, Minister Bartolo, once more, posted on Facebook.

“The police and the court have to do their duty otherwise justice will not be well served”, was the clear message given by the Minister who has been quite outspoken in the past few days.

This is his second post in the last week when he made reference to a kindred subject. Last Sunday on a Facebook post the Minister for Education and Employment Evarist Bartolo said that Malta is currently at a crossroads. The Minister said that protecting criminals will only put Malta in a worse situation. It would be only if justice gets served without any prejudice, would the country stand in a better place.

That post gained greater significance as it was published the day after the police have called in Minister Chris Cardona at their HQ for questioning. The Wednesday morning post comes after the police called in for questioning Keith Schembri the former Chief of Staff of the Prime Minister.

In Wednesday’s post Bartolo recognized that the country is passing through difficult times. He appealed for calm lest violence and hate are kindled. Protest demonstrations are legitimate but have to be in a civil manner, wrote the Minister.
