Malta still has NOT DECIDED whether Serbian children can stay
Although RTS sources reported that a temporary decision had been made that children from non-EU families could still remain in the country, the Government of Malta has not yet made a final decision. The Government of Malta is soon expected to announce the official position on the fate of twenty-two children who are not from the EU countries and do not meet the legal requirements for obtaining a residence permit, because their parents do not earn enough. RTS sources reported that the Prime Minister of Malta had an emergency meeting with the ministers involved in solving this problem and an exemption decision was made. A petition for the stay of children was submitted to the Prime Minister of Malta, signed by 3,000 people in less than 24 hours, including many celebrities, even the Archbishop of Malta himself. Former President of Malta Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca also provided her support to parents from Serbia, saying she was appalled by the treatment of Maltese administration towards the non-domicile community. Under Maltese laws, families from third world countries (countries outside the EU) must earn at least EUR 19,000 a year, plus EUR 3,800 for each child. This amount does not include bonuses or overtime. Previously, the Serbian Ministry of Foreign Affairs also invited Maltese authorities to delay enforcement of decisions to deny residence permit, until consular consultations between the two countries take place at the end of January.
Jesus was born in stable by poor parents. Obviously EU officials did not learn anything from that event.
