Article Featured Image

Some 200 people took part in a protest outside the police headquarters in Floriana this afternoon, aimed at pressuring the Prime Minister to replace police commissioner Laurence Cutajar and Attorney General Peter Grech. 

Protestors threw paper planes into the police HQ’s courtyard, each one marked with a message to Cutajar to resign. Some even wore rabbit ears in a mocking reference to when Cutajar was caught at a rabbit restaurant with his friends when the Egrant scandal blew up earlier this year. 

Addressing the crowds, civil society activist and PN councillor Michael Briguglio warned a “culture of fear” has pervaded Malta and said claimed several people had wanted to attend today’s protest but were too scared to show their faces.
