    AD welcomes settlement between Joanne Cassar and Government


    Alternattiva Demokratika, the Green Party, welcomes the positive developments in the case of Joanne Cassar who was left with no choice by the previous administration other than to fight for her right to marry for the past seven years. Alternattiva Demokratika has fully supported Ms Cassar's case, meeting her in person, and calling on the Government to drop her case and grant her the right to marry without delay.

    Angele Deguara, AD spokesperson for social policy and civil rights, said, "AD welcomes the Government's decision to respect Ms Cassar's full rights as a woman, including the right to marry.”

    She added that, “Alternattiva Demokratika has always been clear in its policies regarding the rights of the LGBT community.”

    Carmel Cacopardo, AD Acting Chairman stated that AD believes that the planned constitutional convention should lead to the inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity in the article prohibiting all forms of discrimination. Additionally, continued Cacopardo, “AD believes that transgender persons should be given full recognition of their new identity without any requirements which go against human rights standards and that the national health services should provide for their treatments and needs just like other citizens. It is important that the Maltese state immediately recognises the gender identity of persons who have assumed a new gender identity and this should be reflected in the person’s official documents such as identity card and passport.”

    AD tilqa’ l-ftehim li sar bejn Joanna Cassar u l-Gvern



    Alternattiva Demokratika hi sodisfatta bl-izviluppi posittivi fil-kaz ta’ Joanne Cassar li ma kellha l-ebda ghazla ohra mill-amministrazzjoni precedenti ghajr li ghal seba’ snin shah tiggieled ghad-dritt taghha li tizzewweg. Alternattiva Demokratika tat appogg shih lis-Sna Cassar, iltaqghet maghha u sejhet lill-Gvern biex jiehu passi halli tieqaf il-kawza u jinghatala bla dewmien id-dritt li tizzewweg.

    Angele Deguara, kelliema ta’ AD ghall-poltika socjali w id-drittijiet civili qalet “AD hi sodisfatta bid-decizjoni tal-Gvern li jirrispetta d-drittijiet kollha ta’ Joanne cassar bhala mara inkluz id-dritt taghha li tizzewweg.”

    Hi ziedet tghid, “Alternattiva Demokratika dejjem kienet cara dwar il-politika taghha koncernanti l-komunita LGBT.”

    Carmel Cacopardo Agent Chairperson ta’ Alternattiva Demokratika qal li AD temmen illi l-konvenzjoni kostituzzjonali ippjanat li ssir ghandha twassal ghall-inkluzjoni tal-orientazzjoni sesswali u l-identita tal-genru fl-artiklu li jipprojibixxi kwalunkwe forma ta’ diskriminazzjoni.  B’zieda ma dan, kompla Cacopardo, AD temmen illi persuni trasngender ghandhom jinghataw gharfien shih tal-identita gdida taghhom minghajr htigijiet li jmorru kontra d-Drittijiet tal-Bniedem u li s-servizz nazzjonali tas-sahha ghandu jipprovdi ghat-trattament u l-htigijiet taghhom bhal kull persuna ohra. Huwa importanti li l-istat Malti jirrikonoxxi immedjatament il-genru ta’ persuni li assumew identita gdida u li dan ghandu jkun rifless fid-dokumenti ufficjali bhal ma huma l-karta tal-identita u l-passaport ikkonkluda Cacopardo.
