Malta news: seeking kidney
Woman posts advert seeking kidney
A woman has posted an advert on an online trading site asking for a kidney for the father of her 10-year-old son, in return for €5,000. Sarah Borg's former boyfriend, Chris Bartolo, suffered a double kidney failure just over a year ago. Since then the 30-year-old had to undergo several operations and, on Monday, he underwent his seventh surgery. Desperate to find a way to help him, Ms Borg decided to recur to the help of the public and posted an advert on Malta Park. She also posted it on the Facebook page of the Church in Malta. So far three people have offered to donate their kidney. The €5,000 compensation is aimed at covering costs incurred by the donor who would have to stop working for a while after the operation. The advert is not illegal as there is no legislation in place regulating the matter. A Health Ministry spokesman said the authorities had just concluded a consultation process for a legal notice to transpose an EU directive regulating organ donation.(timesofmalta.com) We can always say it's wrong, of course, but it worked nonetheless.

House committee issues proposals to open up market for school uniforms
House committee issues proposals to open up market for school uniforms. The parliamentary Social Affairs Committee has proposed that schools should retain the same uniforms for 10 years and that the uniforms should be available from more than one retailer. In a report published for public consultation today the committee recommended that: Schools should keep uniforms as simple as possible, including in the choice of colours and their design; Uniforms should not be changed before a period of 10 years, so that more producers may be encouraged to enter the market; A call for expressions of interest should be issued to determine who is interested in contracts to supply uniforms; Schools should not be the ones to decide on the price of uniforms. The price should be set by the producer  on the basis of the contract having been awarded to the lowest bid with the right quality.(timesofmalta.com)The school uniforms should be available from more than one supplier, if possible, of course.

Tuna industry bribing Maltese politicians, says Sea Shepherd founder
Sea Shepherd's founder Paul Watson has delivered a scathing judgement of Malta's political class, claiming the Bluefin tuna industry has been lining MPs' pockets to sanction their allegedly illegal fishing trade. In an interview he gave to New Europe, Watson - who has led expeditions in the Mediterranean to scupper Maltese tuna ranches - referred to the Maltese tuna industry as a "whole illegal enterprise" that has the full support of the politicians "who are being bribed by these tuna fishermen". Watson said overfishing of Bluefin tuna was making the industry richer by driving prices up as the species is driven closer to extinction, but that the EU, and Malta, were doing little to enforce conservation laws. "The EU has all the rules and regulations that protect our oceans, however, what they do not have is enforcement. We have a lack of will on the part of governments to enforce international conservation law. They need to get out there and arrest the bastards.(maltatosay.com.mt) Always respect the regulations in fishing matters.
