Norman Vella deposits court judgement at door of Castille

From TIMES OF MALTA.COM, 30 October 2013

Norman Vella this evening said justice had been done when a court declared that there was no reasonable suspicion that he had committed a crime at the airport last Sunday.

In a hastily called press conference, Mr Vella deposited the text of the judgement at the front door of the Auberge de Castille and said responsibility had to be assumed for what happened. There had been abuse of power and it was the prime minister's duty to ensure that responsibility was shouldered.

Wara l-każ Norman Vella: min qiegħed imexxi l-korp?

Li l-Pulizija jinvestigaw suspett ta’  reat hu sewwa.  Imma li wara li teżamina l-affarijiet u ma issib xejn tibqa’ tippersisti mhux sempliċi żball iżda abbuż.

Is-sentenza tal-Maġistrat il-lejla illi ma kien hemm l-ebda suspett raġjonevoli li Norman Vella wettaq xi reat hu ċertifikat ċar li l-Pulizija abbużat mill-poteri tagħha.

Huwa inkwetanti  li l-Pulizja sa dal-għodu, fi kliem il-Kummissarju tal-Pulizija, kienu għadhom qed jinvestigaw xi ħaġa li ma kienitx teżisti.

Wara s-sentenza tal-Qorti tal-Maġistrati hemm bżonn li l-Kummissarju tal-Pulizija jispjega ftit x’ġara. Jeħtieġ li jispjega x’rapporti saru u x’ser jagħmel issa li irriżulta li r-rapporti li l-Pulizija irċeviet mingħand żewġ persuni identifikati  kienu rapporti foloz.

Sfortunatament minn dan il-każ jidher ċar li dan m’huwiex każ ta’ inkompetenza imma iktar każ ta’ abbuż.

Ikun tajjeb jekk il-Kummissarju tal-Pulizija Peter Paul Zammit jirrealizza li b’dan il-każ li sar taħt it-tmexxija tiegħu tal-Korp tal-Pulizija beda jkun ċar li l-korp m’huwiex immexxi sewwa.

Il-mistoqsija li tagħha tinħtieġ tweġiba hi: min qiegħed imexxi l-korp fir-realta’? Żgur li mhux Peter Paul Zammit !

Bla dubju l-abbuż ikompli. Prosit Norman.

Norman Vella publishes his statement - Inspector received phone call mentioning Silvio Scerri


A police inspector who was questioning former broadcaster Norman Vella last Sunday received a phone call to which she replied "Silvio Scerri who?" and then added that she only gave information to the Police Commissioner.

The phone call is revealed in the text of the police statement which Mr Vella gave the police. He published a copy today. (The chief of staff at the Ministry of Home Affairs is Silvio Scerri)

The prime minister and Manuel Mallia are planning Norman Vella’s future

From Daphne Caruana Galizia Running Commentary

Norman Vella, July 2012 – boy, was he RIGHT.

From Daphne Caruana Galizia Running Commentary

Those Labour scum, for scum they indubitably are, invited Vella onto the Fat Controller’s show on Super One only to proceed to insult him and attack him – because being Labour and a total bunch of hamalli (I was never allowed to use that word growing up, but face it, no other one suffices) they think it’s normal to let rip into your guests in your ‘home’ by means of verbal assaults and insults.

‘Who is Silvio Scerri?’ – inspector questioning Norman Vella

From The Malta Independent

While Norman Vella was being questioned by police on Sunday, one of the inspectors received a call which she answered with the words “Who is Silvio Scerri?”, following which she replied that she will not give any information to anyone except to the police commissioner.

This forms part of a statement to the police made and signed by Norman Vella, who last Sunday was held for four hours at the end of his shift as an immigration officer, for allegedly taking photos of the government’s chief communications officer Kurt Farrugia and Home Ministry communications coordinator Ramona Attard at the MIA departure lounge.

In his statement to the police, Mr Vella said that while he was being questioned Inspector M’Stella Attard, in the presence of Inspector Silvio Magro and a police sergeant, received a telephone call which she answered by mentioning Silvio Scerri.

The name mentioned is the same name as that of the chief of staff at the Home Affairs Ministry.

L-Orizzont: a bunch of liars like their political masters (and mistresses)

From Daphne Caruana Galizia Running Commentary

L-Orizzont has run a story on Norman Vella’s arrest and detention, except that they didn’t call it that.

It includes the outrageous lie that I uploaded on this site a photograph which Norman Vella took, only to delete it ‘ftit wara’.

Total bollocks, like the rest of the newspaper and those who own it and run it – the General Workers Union and their lying Labour friends.

Norman Vella arrest: A heavy handed approach

The Malta Independent Leader

Former television presenter Norman Vella is currently in the news after he was questioned by the police at his current place of work, as an immigration officer at the Malta International airport.
The case involves his alleged taking of photographs of two political aides as they travelled to London. The official story is that police officers were watching CCTV footage and saw him apparently take a couple of snaps.

He was subsequently held for four hours of questioning and had his mobile phone and a tablet confiscated. Mr Vella said he cooperated with the police and showed them his phone and the other device. He said the police found no such images. Prime Minister Joseph Muscat yesterday said that Mr Vella was not arrested and that he was held for “questioning”.

Writing on her Facebook page, Dr Farrugia said that such abuses were wrong, are wrong and will remain wrong. Nobody should be made to suffer like this, she said, adding that Malta deserves better.

Questioned this morning, Dr Muscat said he did not wish to comment on personal cases, but the information given by the police was that Mr Vella was not arrested, but he was questioned as part of an investigation.

Muscat threatened to ‘hurt’ former TV host, court hears


Joseph Muscat, as leader of the opposition, had threatened to cause serious damage to former television presenter Norman Vella if he felt that the Labour Party was being attacked, Mr Vella claimed yesterday.

Mr Vella made the claim in an application to the Employment Commission alleging political discrimination in the way he was moved from his job at Public Broadcasting Service back to the public service. Mr Vella used to present a talk show called TVHemm. His application was filed against Dr Muscat and the Principal Permanent Secretary.

Former TVHemm producer Norman Vella files political discrimination suit against the government


Times of Malta reports:
Mr Vella recalled that when he was production manager for Xarabank, during a meeting with Dr Muscat, then leader of the Opposition, and in the presence of other Labour officials, Dr Muscat had warned him and the presenter that: “For every blow that we feel you are striking the Labour Party, I will strike you twice, with all my strength, under the belt, where it hurts.”

Such a lovely man for prime minister. Never in a million years could you picture Fenech Adami or Gonzi speaking that way. And what sort of man threatens to hit another one below the belt, anyway?

Such scum.

Former TVHemm presenter says he and Xarabank presenter were threatened


Norman Vella, the former presenter of TVHemm, has instituted a case before the Employment Commission against the Prime Minister and the Principal Permanent Secretary claiming political discrimination in the way he was re-deployed from PBS.

In his application he noted that there had been no reply to a judicial protest he filed on July 17 when he complained that his deployment from PBS had been revoked.

Mr Vella had been deployed to PBS in August 2012 ‘on grounds of public policy’.  He was on unpaid leave, during which time he worked as production manager for programmes which also included Xarabank and Bijografiji.
