Bondiplus presenter Lou Bondì sadi he had "reason to believe' his company and workers 'may be the target of possible attacks'.

Bondiplus presenter and Where's Everybody? director Lou Bondì has asked Police Commissioner John Rizzo to provide "protection", claimimg he feared that the offices, studios and employees of his production house, which produces several programmes for the Public Broadcasting Services, might be the target of "possible attacks".

In the email he sent to Rizzo, copied to the media, Bondì said he has "reason to fear that in the coming days, during and after the counting of votes, our offices and studios in two deferent localities could be attacked. These attacks could also be on the workers and property".

Bondì said as directors and citizens the company was exercising its right to request protection. "I am sure that just like you found three high officials to discriminately arrest a woman in the middle of the night, you can surely find the human resources to grant us the protection we are requesting," he wrote.

Police yesterday brought publicist Daphne Caruana Galizia, the Malta Independent columnist, in for questioning at the Mosta police station on the strength of a duty magistrate's order over complaints that she had breached electoral silence.

Bondì arrived on the scene at Caruana Galizia's house with his crew, asking police inspectors to explain why they were arresting Caruana Galizia.

In his statement, Bondì  warned the  Commissioner of Police that Where's Everybody Co. Ltd would hold the polcie force responsible for any damages the company might incur if his warning was ignored by the police.

This guy is hungry for popularity, always wants to be the center of attraction. Poor guy, soon he might have to compete on a level playing ground for the production of programs on PBS and knowing that he can lose the advantage he has enjoyed throughout these past years is worrying him Maybe he is just seeking attention or become paranoid. Deep down, he knows that he has treated the population like an imbecile for a long time and is justly expecting their retribution. However the greatest revenge the population can achieve over such a person is to let him, and his biased programs, fade away into oblivion, and letting them die their natural death. I am sure that nothing will annoy him more than forgiving him and let him naturally disappear.

he can always ask for his cousin and friends to give him protection!

Most probably Lokibond is afraid of the people who sustained him with millions of euros for the last years. Since he did not deliver they might want their money back. Ha ha.

If anybody is itching to hurt Lou Bondi, it is very easy to do. Just leave him alone. He is craving to be attacked so that he can portray himself as a martyr. Do not give him the satisfaction.
avatar
as if we have time to waste with WE. What on earth does he think he is this man. Maybe the the GonziPN clan will turn against him for the mess he has done in this way of doing journalism...now time will prove us if we are right.

Why on earth should anybody, except for reasons unknown, attack WE and/or persons attached to it? Why is Lou Bondi afraid? He and WE have done nothing wrong, have they? And neither did the woman arrested, whoever she may be. WE, Lou Bondi and the woman have always been morally and ethically right and hence they should not fear. They have always loved their neighbours and Bondi+ is the fairest of alĺ programmes. So why all this worry? Is there something hidden one does not know about? Is the police force not to be trusted any more since a couple of days? Are we in the process of sanctifying two new martyr saints - St. Lou and the woman? How interesting.

If his company produced balanced programmes and discussions what is there to fear? Has he realised now that his compamy was paid out of public funds to prop up the PN electoral campaign. I hope PL do not fall for such provocations from LB, PA and DCG. Let them just fizzle out into oblivion!

Jahasra, fiex spiccajna! Kemm jahseb li hu importanti dan Bondi? U Peppi ma talabx protezzjoni? Irrid infakkar lil tal-WE li l-vjolenza mil-politka Laburista kien nehhieha sbatax-il sena ilu Alfred Sant, imma issa Bondi qed jilghaba tal-vittma, biex fosri jpengi lil PL d'dell ikrah. U issa marritlu l-arja li bieha dahal il-bieb ta' Daphne l-bierah! Ried jaghmila ta' Walker Texas Ranger, imma m'ghandux kukki.

Christmas pantomimes have come early this year! Who does Lou and WE think they are fooling?

Day of Reflection and Voting Day to be conducted without influencing the public, and yet here he is trying to not so subtly insinuate that if labour wins there will be violence! ... These people are unbelievable and all the more reason to be removed as they will stoop to anything to retain power! ... He should have been arrested for interfering with police carrying out their duty,and talking of which where is police professionalism that Ms Caruana Galizia can chose not to be arrested and taken to police HQ? Who is this woman who can simply say she does not want to go there and the police oblige by only taking her to the Mosta police station. ... Why does she think she can be so privileged? If it was not so sad it could be a laughing matter.

What proof has he got to substantial his allegations? He is claiming to have reason to fear that there could be attacked. Since he has provided no proof than it is just as justified to assume that he is basing this claim on his past performance as a 'journalist' as he knows that he was soooooooo biased. However I wish him and his company well for the future as long as they are treated at a level playing field unlike what has been happening for the past years, when family members were governing our islands. Hadd wara hadd tasal ta kullhadd!!! jghid il proverbju Malti

This man is really trying hard to create panic. No, dear Lou, no Labour supporter is coming anywhere next to your offices or employees. This time you will fail to provoke anyone for all have learned the massage. After to-day we will let Justice rid us of you and not at our own expense.

I am sure that Bondi knows why he fears these attacks - because for over a decade he and WE have been abusing taxpayers money by taking over PBS and attacking wildly anyone remotely pro PL or anti PN. He should have relaised this ages ago. Bondi wasn't around in olden days of Xandir Malta he was in Canada, but he has managed to replicate the disgusting situation at PBS. No use going crying to mummy now Lou. You reap what you sow.

Miskien, x'falzita? Yesterday @ DCG's public hullabaloo he was all ready and rearing to go - Canadian cowboy style - (WOW, how alert our Looloo is, Maaaaaa). Now he wants protection without paying for it, due to perceived threats or whatever. Looloo it will not work! Malta is small and people are known. If you feel threatened rig your own security, man. Us taxpayers have had it up to here with wasted resources for primadonnas'.

Daphne Lou Bondi and Peppi (WE) are the reason why the Maltese are so divided. They are till the end doing all they can so as not to see a change in Government and for obvious reasons. Whoever is elected should ensure that they no longer air programs on our national TVM. Dear Lou & Peppi be rest assured that no one is going to bother to attack you because evryone knows that this is exactly what you want. Their place is on net tv. Let's hope that the new Govt whoever it is ensures that our national TV is free from party activists. Bondi will hold the police responsible he said!! - unbelievable how power has gone over these peoples heads. Do they feel that they have provoked the maltese? Both the PN and PL must in the interest of all Maltese ensure that WE are put off national TV.

If these actions are all by the PN side it means that they are in a pitifull situation and are expecting a negative result tomorrow. These actions by their staunch supporters and a vile act by a person who used to be called 'president of Malta' confirm that the PN is willing to take any action to win votes. This is the 'demcratic' way the PN wins elections together with the purchasing of votes by people. Let us not hope that the long queues in particular Labour party towns are not also organized by the PN to damage as much as possible any majority the PL may gain in this election. Mr. Bondi may be feeling that his free income at the expense of us taxpayers is soon ending. He should let go of his extra benefits and become a Maltese like all of us.

Still trying to gain mileage this man. if he really has proof he should present it to thw police not throw mud because nobody can answer him. So, isn't he breaking the law, trying to get a message across without proof...and on this day? shame on him

Why is Lou Bondi and WE not hiring GROPU4Securities? Does he expect free security service from the police? Where are the threats to elicit such claims? The police cannot act on a suspicion of an individual in such a case as no crime has been done. It is up to WE to provide security to its employees premesis' and equipment like any other company. The banks provide their own security and where the local police force is involved they still have to be paid for. Ask MFA what it costs for the police to provide security at Ta' Qali and other football grounds.

Tixtieq Lou, izda f'wiccek u f'wicc Peppi se jibqa (sakemm intom stess ma tqabdux lil xi hadd biex jaghmel xi haga halli "taghmlu n-news" - tiftakarha l-frame-up ta' Dalli?) U nghid jien, jekk il-PN se jirbah zgur ghalfejn Lou qed jitlob protezzjoni minghand il-puluzija? Min jaf ghalfejn huwx galdarba l-PN prattikament rebah! What goes round comes round! Tick Tock. Tick Tock. Tick Tock.
