Music industry heavyweight and X Factor Malta judge Howard Keith Debono is the latest Maltese personality to weigh in on the current political climate, warning of the potentiality of bloodshed in the streets amidst a crucial time in Malta’s history.
Taking to Facebook to share his thoughts, the artist manager and producer warned that Malta doesn’t “show that justice is unobstructed and seen to be unobstructed this is going to turn into an even bigger problem”.
“The disgusting letter below is the reason why Malta is currently bleeding, causing both internal and external haemorrhage,” Howard said, quoting a letter written by alleged murder middleman Melvin Theuma in which he warned that suspect Yorgen Fenech and the Prime Minister’s former chief of staff Keith Schembri had tried to eliminate him.
“If the police commissioner, Attorney General and the justice system don’t do something bold to show that justice is unobstructed and seen to be unobstructed this is going to turn into an even bigger problem. Losing control of the country means potentially having bloodshed on the streets of Malta. This is getting very dangerous and I sincerely hope common sense prevails placing partisan politics at the bottom of the priority list.”
Tensions are running high in Malta, with daily protests taking place to pressure Joseph Muscat to resign immediately. Yesterday, President George Vella addressed the nation, in which he appealed for calm and warned the damage to Malta’s reputation risks becoming irreparable if everyone doesn’t take stock of their responsibilities.
