Students at Barts Medical School rise to 59

The student population at Barts Medical School in Gozo has risen to 59, but at this rate the target mentioned by the Prime Minister of having 300 after five years will not be met. Compared to last April when the figure stood at 40, the total suggests that the intake in the second year was of just 19 students. However, the details seem to be shrouded under a veil of secrecy as the government has repeatedly refused to divulge any data, even when the matter was raised in Parliament. Two weeks ago, Education Minister Evarist Bartolo declined to reply to questions filed by Gozitan MP Chris Said on the number of students, their nationalities and if any of them had the course expenses covered by a scholarship. In his reply, Mr Bartolo, referred the MP to a reply given to a similar question made last February, in which it was stated that such information could not be divulged as it was “commercially sensitive”. In contrast, a spokesman for Barts in London had no issues whatsoever to disclose the number of students at their medical school in Gozo for the second time this year. While earlier this year he had said that the figure stood at 40, a few days ago he noted that this had risen to...

Watch: Rooney to wear 10 shirt, captain's armband in England farewell

Wayne Rooney will wear the number 10 shirt and captain's armband when he comes on for his final England appearance in Thursday's friendly with the United States, manager Gareth Southgate said. «The players are very keen that Wayne wears the number 10 and we believe that is a fitting tribute,» Southgate told a news conference on Wednesday. «All of our group have huge respect for Wayne and they feel that it is fitting that his last game should in the number 10,» added the England manager. Rooney, who now plays in Major League Soccer for D.C United, will start on the bench before entering the field for his 120th and final cap in the international at Wembley Stadium. Southgate did not want to fix a time in the game when Rooney would come on but said he had discussed it with the 33-year-old. «We will give him enough so that I think it is fitting... but we also want to make sure we get the balance of looking at younger players, giving them the right amount of time and making sure our preparation for Sunday is right is another priority.» England face Croatia in a Nations League match on Sunday. "But I have to say it's very important for all of us as a group that he gets a good send...

Press freedom organisations reiterate 'serious concerns' about Malta's freedom of expression

A group of international press freedom organisations have again highlighted “serious concerns” about the state of freedom of expression in Malta.In a statement issued on Wednesday, PEN International, Reporters Without Borders, the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom, the International Press Institute, and ARTICLE 19 said they had earlier submitted a report to the United Nations outlining their “serious concerns” on the state of freedom of expression and press freedom in the country.The United Nations reviewed Malta’s human rights record on Wednesday through its Universal Periodic Review mechanism. The review receives submissions from national governments as well as civil society organisations. “Owing to ongoing and escalating concerns with freedom of expression and the safety of journalists in Malta”, the group then published an updated report last month.Both reports, the group said, had found that freedom of expression in the country had deteriorated significantly in the lead-up to and in the aftermath of the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

UK ministers back May on Brexit but she faces battle in parliament

British Prime Minister Theresa May won the backing of her senior ministers for a draft European Union divorce deal on Wednesday, freeing her to tackle the much more perilous struggle of getting parliament to approve the agreement. More than two years after the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU in a referendum, May told reporters outside her Downing Street residence that she had won over her divided cabinet, which includes some senior Brexiteers. «The collective decision of cabinet was that the government should agree the draft withdrawal agreement and the outline political declaration,» May said outside her Downing Street residence after a five-hour cabinet meeting. «I firmly believe that the draft withdrawal agreement is the best that could be negotiated,» May said as protesters shouted anti-Brexit slogans from the end of the street. It was not immediately clear whether any ministers had resigned over the deal, which May hopes will satisfy both Brexit voters and EU supporters by ensuring close ties with the bloc after Britain leaves on March 29. But May, the weakest British leader in a generation, now faces the ordeal of trying to push her deal through a vote in the British...

GWU silent on president’s conflict

The General Workers’ Union has kept silent over news revealed by this newspaper that its president, Victor Carachi, is on the government’s payroll as one of its consultants. Questions by the Times of Malta on whether the union’s administration has been made aware that its president is giving consultancy services to the government while acting as chief of the largest trade union were so far ignored. Both GWU Secretary General Josef Bugeja and Mr Carachi have so far failed to reply. Last week, Times of Malta reported that Mr Carachi has been put on the government payroll and is receiving €12,500 a year as consultant to MIMCOL, the state agency responsible for government investments. MIMCOL currently falls under the political remit of Economy Minister Chris Cardona and the nature of Mr Carachi’s role is not yet known. Considered as a moderate voice in the union, Mr Carachi has been employed as GWU president since 2008. Until then he was an employee of HSBC. In his role as GWU president, Mr Carachi is also on the board of directors of some 11 private companies owned by the GWU, including of its various commercial arms which span from the Mellieħa Bay Holiday Complex to an insurance...
