The movement #Reżistenza has attached another sign, this time to the gates of the Law Courts., This graphic depicts Minister of Justice Owen Bonnici breaking the symbolic scales of justice .
In a statement they explained that the country is increasingly divided into two tribes, where winner takes all and rules to benefit its own exclusive interests and the interests of its members. They insisted that Malta has a lack of people with the national interest at heart who occupy sensitive positions.
#Rezistenza also criticised the promotion proposed to Magistrate Consuelo Scerri Herrera and maintained that there was no legitimate reason that could have led to the acceptance of the promotion of Magistrate Consuelo Scerri Herrera to Judge, especially considering that in January 2017, the same offer was denied by the Justice Appointments Committee.
They explained that it is evident that the law is being used only to bend on itself in cases where the government and its agencies foresee an unfavourable outcome. They remarked that now “the mask is off and the true face of the regiment is exposed for everyone to see”.
