AD solidarity with Times of Malta reporter

AD expresses its solidarity with Times of Malta reporter, Ivan Martin, who was arrested on the orders of Magistrate Carol Peralta for doing his duty.

AD Chairperson Prof. Arnold Cassola said: “The abuse of power by the magistrate is unacceptable. Throwing a party in a courtroom with drinks, cigarettes and music does not seem to be the most appropriate thing. With proven corruption amongst three judges in the last 10 years, police acting as waiters, a lawyer turned minister blackmailing a person, the Armed Forces commander not bothering to answer questions on the death of 270 Syrians and now this ‘toga party’, the rule of law in Malta seems to be really going to the dogs”.
