With reference to the Assistant Head of School cleared of child abuse yesterday, the MUT welcomes the court’s decision and appreciates the relative swiftness in which it was reached. The Union hopes that the person involved is now not dragged into further turmoil and that justice is delivered to this person by acting upon those persons responsible for all the reckless allegations against him. Only in this way one can ensure that frivolous allegations are not repeated.
Also, the Union appeals with the courts to speed up similar cases, especially in Gozo, where one in particular has been going on for more than four years. The MUT hopes that the lessons learnt from this case will create perspective when dealing with other current and future cases. Meanwhile the Union thanks the police for clarifying the methodologies used in such cases.
