No sign of terrorism in Berlin shooting incident

A German police officer shot and wounded a man who threatened another officer with a weapon in the car park of a Berlin hospital, but the incident did not appear related to terrorism, a police spokesman said. "There are no signs whatsoever of terrorism, but rather of a mentally unstable person," the spokesman said. German authorities have been on high security alert since December, when an Islamist militant drove a truck at high speed into a crowd at a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12. The Berlin police spokesman said the motives of the man who menaced the police officer were not yet known and that he had said nothing while pointing his weapon. He said the man was shot in the leg and underwent surgery at the hospital in the Kreuzberg district of Germany's capital.

United Airlines to give $10,000 to passengers who give up their seats

Giving up your seat on United just got a less painful. The airline said today it will offer passengers who forfeit seats on overbooked flights up to $10,000. The carrier figures it will cost them less that a repeat of the incident where a passenger, David Dao was forcibly dragged from his seat to make room for United crew members. Dao's lawyer said he incurred a concussion, broken nose and lost two front teeth. The new policy also comes after rival Delta outlined plans of its own for cash compensation - United's offer topping Delta's by 50 dollars. Dao was yanked from a flight from Chicago to Louisville by authorities. United later saying it will no longer call law enforcement in such situations, and that passengers who've already boarded will never be asked to deplane. United CEO Oscar Munoz, who's been under fire for the debacle, last week forfeited his role as company chairman, which was planned for 2018.

Skaters call for removal of billboards at Msida park

Skaters risk getting injured every time they whirl off ramps at the Msida skatepark as billboards have been set up close to the half-pipes there. Two billboards were put up some months ago to the surprise of the many skaters who visit the park regularly. The billboards pose a danger to the skaters as they are too close to the spot where those on skateboards and bicycles land. No applications for any such billboards at the skatepark could be traced through the Planning Authority’s map server and questions sent to the authority remained unanswered by the time of writing. Meanwhile, an online petition by skaters calling for consultation on “the proper placement of billboards” has over 500 signatures. The petition is calling on the authorities to ensure that the safety of those using the park is taken into consideration before any such structures are installed. “The Msida skatepark has been in a poor state for years. Two or three times a year we spend days or even weeks making phone calls to the respective authorities to see what is going to be done about lights not working, overflowing bins and other maintenance issues,” skater Julian Delia said. He said this was not the first time...

Russian spy ship sinks off Turkey's Black Sea coast after collision

A Russian naval intelligence ship sank off Turkey's Black Sea coast after colliding with a vessel carrying livestock and all 78 personnel on board the navy ship were evacuated, Turkish officials said. The rescued crew members of the Russian ship Liman were in good health after the collision with the Togo-flagged Youzarsif H, Turkey's Transport Minister Ahmed Arslan said. The incident took place in fog and low visibility 18 miles (29 km) from Kilyos village on the Black Sea coast just north of Istanbul. Turkish authorities dispatched a tugboat and three fast rescue vessels, the coastal safety authority said. Advisers to Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim conveyed his sadness over the incident to Russian counterparts, according to sources in his office. Relations between the two countries have suffered from political disputes over the civil war in Syria, where Moscow and Ankara support different factions. Russian warships frequently pass through the narrow Bophorus Strait, which cuts through Istanbul, on their way from the Black Sea to Syria's Mediterranean coast. A spokesman for Hammami Livestock which owns the Youzarsif H said there had been no loss of life on board the vessel.

Astrid Vella handing over - FAA launches fresh identity

Environmental NGO Flimkien Għal Ambjent Aħjar has launched a revamped brand identity to represent a younger, fresher outlook as part of a major revamp. The NGO also announced that its coordinator Astrid Vella is handing over as she is moving overseas. “This new branding will appeal to professional and creative young people, students, business leaders and families but does not shed the qualities and history that led us here. “The colours chosen reflect the natural and built environment of the Maltese islands, with the outline of the Valletta skyline standing as an iconic standard-bearer for the beauty and heritage of our islands and a pertinent reminder of precisely what is at risk in the coming years,” committee member Tara Cassar told the FAA’s annual general meeting. Astrid Vella said the organisation was making major changes in response to the challenges that Malta was facing on the environmental and heritage scene “with so many new planning policies being conceived and systematically manipulated to favour development on a scale that threatens to rob us not only of our heritage gems but also of our health”. “Over the past year, FAA has seen the travesty of the Townsquare...

The scourge of omertà

Francis Vassallo, an expert in the financial world, recently spoke out without reservation and declared that the situation in Malta is beyond worrying. He went as far as to say that unless the competent authorities take action immediately the financial industry in Malta is at risk of collapsing. This shocking revelation only hit the news in certain media outlets while it was completely disregarded by others. However, what I find most shocking is that only one person has spoken up. It is alarming that all the thousands of others who work in financial services keep silent while Malta burns. Alarming not just because the silent are complicit but because by believing they are safeguarding their own vested interests they are in reality betraying them. If Malta’s reputation is lost what will they tell their clients and their colleagues abroad? Who would want to trade here except some bogus operators? The silence of the many is deafening and disgusting. Even the Malta Institute of Accountants is too quiet for its own sake. Their president recently wrote an article in the Times of Malta. But again did it go far enough? Did it say what sort of action the accountancy board has taken with...

The bank reported an 8.1% increase in pre-tax profits to just over €74 million as the €5.3 million net reversal of impairments (as opposed to a charge of €8.1 million in the previous comparable period) and the surge in share profits from associate companies to €8.9 million offset the 8.3% decline in total operating income to €123.2 million and the 8.5% increase in non-interest expenses to €63.4 million. The directors also declared a net interim gross dividend of €0.045 per share (net: €0.0293) representing a 24% increase over the previous interim dividend. Nonetheless, the directors noted that within a 12-month period the Bank will be seeking to raise €150 million in fresh equity capital. On the...

"Magistrate Aaron Bugeja has started the inquiry about the allegations made by journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia that the mysterious Egrant company set up in Panama is or was owned by the Prime Minister's wife Michelle Muscat, an allegation rejected by the Prime Minister.

Keith Schembri applies to become PN volunteer, party says

OPM chief of staff today applied to become a volunteer with the Nationalist Party, the PN said in a statement“Accused with a crime that could lead to 18 years in prison, this morning the Prime Minister’s chief of staff, instead of answering journalists’ questions on his behaviour, used his time to log onto the PN website and apply to become a volunteer,” the PN said in a statement.In an attempt to take people who follow him on Facebook for a ride, Keith Schembri then uploaded a post with a copy of an automatic email that is sent to all those who volunteer to work for the PN.What Keith Schembri did not say is that he was the one to apply. “Even on something like this, Keith Schembri is lying,” the PN said.The PN’s doors are open to people who want to give their time for the PN, but for Keith Schembri the door is closed.

Updated (2): Busuttil testifies in Egrant inquiry, says magistrate to investigate documents provided

PN leader Simon Busuttil this morning testified before Magistrate Aaron Bugeja in the inquiry on the Egrant saga.After a two-hour testimony, Dr Busuttil told the media that he has presented documents to the magistrate, and these will be investigated. He said that the Prime Minister should shoulder his responsibilities in the wake of these revelations, adding that any extra day he spends in power he is causing more damage to the country.Questioned by the media regarding the call for an early election, Dr Busuttil commented that it is not normal for a Government elected with a 36,000 majority to hold an election after only four years. "That in itself already shows that there’s something which isn’t normal," he said."The only reason the PM wants an early election is to avoid being interrogated in the ongoing investigation," he said.               Dr Busuttil said that he is not publishing the documents he presented to the magistrate to protect his sources and in order to show others that it is safe to come forward with information.Dr Busuttil refused to say whether his source was the FIAU report which investigated the issue.He told the press that he provided proof to the Magistrate regarding both Egrant and the citizenship scheme.He also confirmed that he has still not been approached by the police commissioner.On Tuesday, the Opposition Leader said he had documented proof that OPM chief of staff Keith Schembri took kickbacks from Nexia BT’s Brian Tonna on sale of passports. On Wednesday he filed an application to testify before Magistrate Aaron Bugeja, who is conducting an inquiry into the Egrant saga.The application was accepted by the magistrate, and Dr Busuttil is now in court to give his testimony.Dr Busuttil said that he will only present the proof he has to the magistrate, as he has no confidence in the police commissioner. Daphne Caruana Galizia arrives in court from The Malta Independent on Vimeo. Blogger Daphne Caruana Galizia also appeared before the magistrate this morning.She had initially turned down the request to testify, however arrived at the Malta courts after being summoned by the magistrate.Speaking to The Malta Independent as she waited to testify, Daphne Caruana Galizia said she will be testifying on what is already public.
