Mayor Pete Buttigieg stood before newly sworn police officers to welcome them to the city's ranks, just as he has more than a dozen times since taking office. But this time he was a Democratic candidate for president, speaking just days after a white officer fatally shot a black man the officer said was armed with a knife. The timing made for a more sober, less congratulatory occasion, Buttigieg acknowledged Wednesday. Then he delivered a speech intended for an audience far beyond South Bend, touching on a long history of racial injustice, "justified anger" among residents and "a seemingly constant series of stories and videos from around the country showing abuses that tarnish the badge.". "You may think to yourself — how is this my fault?
The proposed legal changes in construction laws will eliminate geological studies presently required when excavating and is worse than what currently exists, geologist Peter Gatt told The Malta Independent. The issue lies on the removal of a requirement for geological investigations in cases of excavation works, and the replacement with studies which Gatt describes more as being there to aid the developers with designing the building and the foundations, rather than to understand the geology of the area to protect third-party rights. The recent spate of building collapses and construction site injuries forced the government to take action, and resulted in the Prime Minister ordering a temporary freeze to demolition and excavation works.

A single governmental “one-stop-shop” should be created to receive every complaint about any environmental related matter, be it on the built environment or the un-built environment, the Commissioner for the Environment and Planning within the Ombudsman’s Office has proposed. Reacting to the publication of the new draft Avoidance of Damage to Third Party Property Regulations, the Commissioner wrote that the average citizen is wasting a lot of time trying to find which government entity they should refer their complaint to, with serious consequences when the cases are of an urgent nature, and so such a one-stop-shop should be created to make it easier to submit such complaints. This one-stop-shop – called the Government Authorities, Departme.

She announced that the government intends on launching the system later this year, and that it is currently in the testing phase.

Speaking at the press conference for the launch of a report on simplification, Principal Permanent Secretary Mario Cutajar explained that the first mission the government embarked on for public services was to make i.

Partit Demokratiku said today it is “a myth” that ING’s decision to pull out its correspondence banking with Bank of Valletta “is a symptom of BOV's success”, as the Prime Minister has said. It is also insulting people’s intelligence, PD said in a statement. “ING's decision is a wake-up call. Some see us as dodgy and shady. We want to show the opposite. Led by PD, Malta will do good business, not shady business," stated interim leader Godfrey Farrugia. PD insists that Joseph Muscat should stop taking the entire finance and gaming industry for a ride. The whole world is ramping up its fight against money laundering following recent scandals whilst Malta, as a jurisdiction, is internationally being seen to be moving in the other direction. Th.
The massive DB project at the former ITS site in St George's Bay has hit a major snag after the appeals court ruled today that the planning permit granted in September last year is null and void.
