The Order of Malta expresses its heartfelt condolences for the murder of the 35 year-old policeman, Mario Cerciello Rega, during the night between 25 and 26 July in the Prati district of Rome. The sergeant had been a volunteer for the Order of Malta’s Roman delegation since 2009, distributing meals to the homeless and vulnerable people in the Termini and Tiburtina railway stations. A constant and regular commitment carried out with such dedication and passion that he was awarded a Merito Melitense decoration in 2013.
