Photos: Coal and scandals on Ministries’ doorsteps

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Several ministries found coal at their doorstep which was placed by Occupy Justice activists during the night. Describing it as a symbolic of the just retribution due to those who committed these crimes against their own people, the activists also left a list of some of the scandals which have plagued the Maltese islands over the past six years and a half.

In a statement, the pressure group said that it ‘commemorated’ Christmas by leaving a Yuletide symbol at the doorsteps of the Ministries for Finance, Home Affairs, Justice, Tourism, Economy, Health, Foreign Affairs and the ‘office of the soon-to-be-ex-Prime Minister.

“Christmas might be a time of celebration for many, but it is also a time of reflection, a time to contemplate the constitutional crisis that Malta is currently going through,” the statement reads.

The activist group said that through their symbolic action, it wanted to remind Joseph Muscat and ‘his cronies’ that their fight for truth and justice continues, even during the festive season. It added, that during this period the shocking revelations of justice denied are highlighted rather than diminished, in reference to the unfolding political crisis over the past weeks.

“Your business-as-usual attitude will not make us forget the endless list of crimes that you are so desperate to cover up. While you go about your day-to-day activities, our institutions continue to fail us spectacularly, and this is only made possible because of the level of impunity with which those concerned are allowed to operate,” Occupy Justice said.

‘“There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate.” Daphne Caruana Galizia’s final words continue to ring true,’ the statement reads.
