Disadvantages of having a really good streak in a country’s battle against a global pandemic as beautiful weather perfectly coincides with the weekend? Well, you’ve got yourself a recipe for yet another very busy couple of days for the island’s police force.
“Oh what a weekend,” the Malta Police Force kicked off a Facebook post yesterday evening. “Here is a recap of SOME of the work carried out by several Police sections and districts between Friday (24th April) and Sunday (26th April).”
From another 100 fines issued to groups of more than three people gathered in public places to an insane 67 more tickets for excessive speeding, the weekends don’t seem to be getting any calmer for the nation’s police force.
Beyond these, three fines were issues for people breaching quarantine regulations, along with yet another establishment found to be breaching regulations imposed by the government some weeks ago.
Numerous drug bust operations also occurred over the weekend, not to mention the discovery of 18 people who had organised an illegal party at the White rocks area.
Six men were also charged over the weekend; five by the Anti-Terrorism Unit, and one by the ALE in connection with illegal hunting when he was arrested with a loaded, modified gun in his car.
“On the bright side today, 0 positive COVID-19 cases were reported in Malta, so thank you to all those who are cooperating and helping us to continue to flatten the curve,” the Malta Police Force continued.
Here’s hoping even more people cooperate so that we can truly get out of this safe, sound, and as soon as possible.
