Malta: Maltesers not so sweet on blasphemy

April 25, 2013

A report on human rights around the world from the US Department of State has revealed that 99 individuals were convicted in Malta last year for “public blasphemy”, down from 119 in 2011….

…Maltese law prohibits the vilification of or giving offense to the Roman Catholic Church. It is a criminal offense to utter publicly any obscene or indecent words, make obscene acts or gestures or in any other way offend public morality, propriety or decency.
