Hi Guys,

Thought this might be of interest to for spearos/scuba divers in particular.

There is a case law that now interprets liability with respect to an injured snorkeller that I understand could be successfully applied god forbid there is a similar hearing.

He got the fine and the suspension because he was driving without insurance. He was not sentenced because he injured the diver since the diver did not have the marker buoy.

Veru hasra u jalla ma jkunx hemm aktar incidenti simili. Biss is-snorkler messu kien jaf aktar u ma johrogx f'open sea minghajr markers. Fuq kollox ghall-gid tieghu stess!

Milli jidher le. Nikkunsidralkom tikkunsidraw dan l kaz bis serjeta ghax nahseb l interpretazzjoni tal prim awla hija differenti minn kif nifmuwa ahna. Intant meta tohrog nitfa anke s sentenza tal magistrat u nghidilkom x kinu l hsibijiet tal qorti.
