Helga Ellul proposes Freeport for Luxury Goods

In a press conference held today, PN MEP candidate Helga Ellul outlined a proposal for the setting up of a Freeport for Luxury Goods in Malta, a facility in which high value items would be stored free of any taxes or customs duties. These items could include anything ranging from works of art to precious stones and documents. Apart from storage, the facility could also house showrooms where people could buy or sell items on-site.

Convention to protect women against all forms of violence enters into force

Facebook: Share & Shame?

With social media currently at the tips of our fingers everywhere we go, any person who can be subjected to being photographed has to be aware of his actions and also his appearance.

Some 15-years ago this was the least of our problems. With a point and click camera, the only problem we had was that we could not see what we had shot. Now, in 2014, you have to be very aware of your personal actions as you are bound to be subjected to humiliation to thousands of people even if at the time only five people were present.
