Muscat on immigrants, domestic violence, transport and Brexit

Prime Minister and Labour Party leader Joseph Muscat said that the number of immigrant arrivals in Malta are currently at an all time low, almost insignificant levels. He said this during his uhabitual Sunday contribution on the Labour Party radio station.

Muscat said that scores of vessels loaded with immigrants were crossing the Mediterranean and were not re-directing to Malta. He said that a policy based on ‘common sense’ and ‘sensibility’ is being adopted on the issue. Malta needs to save these immigrants out of a sense of duty and humanity without taking on burdens that should be carried by other European States.

Technology vs Criminality, Brexit and other matters

The Prime Minister also mentioned that discussions are underway as to how technology could help fight criminality, particularly in entertainment hot spots such as Paceville. He also said that the Partit Nazzjonalista has no credibility to discuss the issue of domestic violence and stressed that Malta still has a long way to go on the issue.

Joseph Muscat also said that he believes that there will be a Brexit agreement and that almost every head of the European States would like the United Kingdom to remain a member of the European Union.

He also said that all the minivans in Malta will be utilised to transport students to and from school and that the demand for transport is higher than supply.
