A final farewell is paid to the late Ivan Fenech, who was assistant editor to the Times of Malta. His funeral was held in the Church of the Rotunda in Mosta. Fenech was 55 years old.

His death was announced last Wednesday having been feeling ill in the newsroom on the Tuesday evening. He died in hospital the following day.

Fenech had joined the Times back in the 1980s and worked as a journalist with the newsroom up until 1997. In addition to journalism, he was also involved in the satirical broadcast ‘Aħn’aħna jew M’aħniex’ or ‘We are not in the eighties.’
