Copy-paste fail links Maltese law to web article on pregnancy symptoms

Was a legal drafter working on the Maltese Civil Code concerned about a pregnancy scare?

Somebody drafting changes to the Maltese Civil Code during the last year must have been concerned about a missed period or an unusual appetite.

Whoever drafted the annotation with Article 136 of the Civil Code copied the internet address of a website that tells you which pregnancy symptoms might actually be something else.



It is unclear when exactly the mistake was made but the mistake was gone from the Court Services website by the end of the day.

Definitely a classic case of copy-and-paste gone wrong.
