Health Minister clarifies his postion - No threats - Malta Indenpendent on sunday - 22/6/2003

No threats from Minister

Allow me to express my complete surprise about the heading of the article “Health Minister threatens disciplinary action against doctors reporting late for work” carried in your last issue of 15 June.

The minister gave his comments on the phone to Daniela Xuereb but he never mentioned any threatening words towards doctors and consultants, as shown in the article.

The Minister just stated simple known facts about presence at work of all government employees and the established disciplinary procedures followed in case anyone is not found at his place of work.

The Minister’s comments surely do not qualify as threats and I sincerely think that the heading of the article does not reflect what was said during the interview.
