Updated : Prime Minister should apologise to Police

Updated : Prime Minister should apologise to Police

Up till yesterday I was offering my help as an elected memeber of parliament to the prime Minister especially in the fields of justice, home affaisr and constituional issues. I have been loyal to the PN principles even when Carm was doing his his part to destroy justice and home affirs. I am still offering my help to the PM.

I am sorry to say this. This is the motto of the evil clique : they blame you for their mistakes and they steal and take the merit of your good ideas. They do not resign for creating problems, yet they expect credit when the same problems are solved.

After announcing reform of the police force and now  a better remuneration package for the police force, issues for which I have strongly campaigned, and were not done for the nine years that Carm was in the justice and home affairs ministry, the Prime Minister should apologise to the police corps for imposing Carm Mifsud Bonnici as minister for Justice and Home Affairs. It is the bare minimum.

The police were utterly fed up of him. They are still without a Police Academy and without a decent union like all other policemen in Europe. Carm is renowned for procrastination and neverending negotiations leading  nowhere. The restorative justice Act introducing  parole is still not fully in place.

The PN executive condemned me for pushing these reforms at the same time that I was speaking ain parliament about these reforms whicha re now being implemented. These things happen in totalitarian states.

I do not expect the Prime Minister to thank me for pushing these reforms. I do not expect any apologies or thanks. The police  appreciate. As a criminal lawyer for over ten years I have respect for the police especially those individuals who really love their work and perform their duties with love and dedication. Still much more needs to be done to strenghten the police force, a lot of points are included in my private members’ motion.

But the Prime Minister has the duty and responsibility to apologise to the Police Force of Malta for imposing Carm Mifsud Bonnici as minister on them for all those years. If Carm Mifsud Bonnici was PN candidate who got least votes from the Cottonera district in the last election, after his father was elected from years from the same district, it is surely not my fault. And it is surely  not my fault if he mismanaged his portfolio.

 The Executive Committee should revoke its decisions, not only because they were proceduarally incorrect violating the rules of natural justice, but wrong also on the merits.

    Some real journalists have been writing about Carm’s performance (or lack of) and agreeing with Franco for years. Look here: http://malta-exposed.blogspot.com/2009/12/oppressive-decrees.html

    Mill-backbench, ara x’kisbiet ghamilt.
    Inti ghandek l-appeal – ir-realta fil-politika tghodd id-dehra u jghodd il-kontenut. Inti tgawdi mit-tnejn….nispera li tikkunsidra l-option ta’ Partit……jekk tippermettili nkun pruzuntuza, isem semplici: Partit Demokratiku.

    Dear Franco, it seen that you can not understand that there is time in life when you need to hold on your principles to which till now you seen that you are doing, but there is even a time when you need to call it a day to which this part you can not understand. It would be better to hold your gun and stay with your principles. Do not try to put the Donkey near the water even if his thirsty, this is the same as trying to persuade the Executive Committee to revoke there decision, and doing this will show you as a weak person. Stay to you word to which people will still remember. Personally, I had left Malta and opened my Business here in Ukraine, the only think I can say that PN brought me unemployed and with out never ending court cases that people have to pay me for work I done, court case that are still in Court for 14 years and on, this brought me to sell my business and even with the how I sold the Business ended up in Court……. This is Malta! I hope you understand my brief. It will come a time when the people will all realize what you have gave to Malta. Stray with your GUN

    Posted at 09:23h, 10 August

    gonzi has already thanked you for your efforts, YOU R EXPELLED FROM THE PN AND CANNOT CONTESTT WITH THE PN.you have to b a rising star like CLAUDIO GRECH , from a clerk to a million er in no time at all to be appreciated.tazaq flilma qiaghd FRANCO

      Posted at 14:57h, 10 August

      I have been encouraging Franco in other media. I am glad I have been proved right. Franco your worth is being recognised by the unbiased electorate, apart from genuine PN voters. Of course you will not contest this time round, but wait till next time the newly regenerated PN will be after you like hot cakes on a cold winter’s night. It looks like you have struck great fear in the clique’s public face. More power to your arms I would say. Keep well!

    the damage has been done.. the Police force needs a complete restructuring. There are too many that have for too long been abusing their position and I regret to say there is also the possibility that corruption is rampant. Police officials especially high ranking officers cannot afford to be seen in Paceville partying with people of notorious reputation.. I think it is not befitting. Like most public figures they need to carry respect for what they represent, not just who they are.

      Posted at 14:52h, 10 August

      Name and shame otherwise all the Police would be tarred with the same brush.
