Petition for an Amnesty

The collection of petitions to be sent to the Hon. Prime Minister and Hon. Members of Cabinet for a generous amnesty to all prisoners continued steadily. The petition is being done on the occasion ofMalta’s accession to the European Union.

The number of petitions collected are symbolic, in the sense that it was not logistically possible to conduct the gathering at all localities ofMaltaand Gozo. However from the little effort that was done the number of petitions gathered is MORE THAN 3000 in just three weeks. This, in the circumstances, is considered to be a record.

On April 1 Mid-Dlam ghad-Dawl made a formal petition to the Prime Minister to present a motion to the Cabinet in order to grant the petition. Mid-Dlam ghad-Dawl even contacted all the Ministers individually in order to ask them to support the motion. It is understood that the indications for the granting of the amnesty are good.

The petitions are being collected on single cards, but also on other sheets. These are being sent to the office of the Prime Minister inVallettaby Mid-Dlam ghad-Dawl, but also individually by post.
