Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

In what is being described as an unprecedented move just under 300 hundred academics – at the time of writing this report – signed a petition calling for Prime Minister Joseph Muscat to resign or be removed.

The full text of the petition is the following:

“As academics at the University of Malta we have followed developments in Malta tied to the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, corruption and institutionalised money laundering. We feel that those entrusted with power have betrayed, in the most serious manner, the trust of Maltese citizens and the international community. In this context, Joseph Muscat must resign or be removed from office with immediate effect. This is necessary for the investigations to proceed without impediment from the Office of the Prime Minister”.

Academics have up till 10.00am this morning to sign the petition.
