Alternattiva Demokratika supports Lynn Zahra’s divorce court case
Alternattiva Demokratika – The Green Party fully supports the court case to be instituted by Dr Lynn Zahra, with regard to divorce.
Michael Briguglio, AD Chairperson, stated: ‘Alternattiva Demokratika gives total political support to Dr Zahra’s court case, and we applaud her for her courage which is inspirational to thousands of other persons in a similar situation’.
Arnold Cassola, AD Spokesperson on EU and International Affairs, stated: ‘Maltese and European Union citizens resident in Malta are discriminated against because they cannot have recourse to divorce in Malta. Unfortunately, because of the fundamentalist attitude of the Maltese government and the “catch all voters” attitude of the PL leadership, the Maltese are being deprived of a civil right which all other European Union citizens are party to’.
Yvonne Arqueros Ebejer, AD Spokesperson on Civil Rights, added, ‘Lynn Zahra has started the ball rolling. This court case could constitute an important milestone for the thousands of Maltese who are being deprived of their right to re-marry after their first marriage has failed or to start a new life whatever they choose it to be. Should Lynn Zahra lose her case in Malta, she can then proceed to the European Courts of Justice’.
