She was well known in Mgarr as the victim of constant, regular violence

The Times reports today:
Meanwhile, police forensic experts on Thursday evening returned to the house in Mgarr where a Moroccan mother-of-two died from a head wound two days ago. They still have to establish whether the woman injured herself in an accidental fall, or whether she was murdered.
The police should take the trouble of informing the press that this woman was well known to them, as she was to her Mgarr neighbours and the few friends who served as a support network, as the repeated and constant target of her husband’s violent abuse.
Perhaps they don’t wish to make this fact known, just in case we ask them the obvious question as to why nothing was done to help her before she ended up dead, given that she was from another country and had almost nobody to turn to here in Malta.
What a week for misogynistic Malta, eh?
One woman shot by her policeman husband – who drove his police car to her place of work to do it.
One woman stabbed by a man who played some as yet unclear role in her life, on a public road.
One woman, known to be the victim of her husband’s cruelty and savage abuse, found dead in a pool of blood.
One woman jailed for refusing to allow her estranged husband to see their son – when the son was 16 and at sixth form college and not in a position to be forced to see his father or prevented from seeing him.
