The Police Force this morning lost one of its high officials, Gozitan Superintendent Edel May Camilleri, who lost her battle with cancer.
“A genuine person, friendly and honest, capable, with a good heart and always smiling”. This was the description given to Supt Camilleri by Inspector Sandro Camilleri, President of the POU-GWU Union, in which the Superintendent was a member.
Inspector Camilleri stated that when he requested his colleagues this week to pray for a person who was battling cancer and was in a very critical state, he was referring to Superintendent Camilleri.
He added that he knew Camilleri since she was a cadet and was appointed Inspector some 17 years ago. ” We were always friends and she used to phone me when she had some legal or other problems.”
Many persons expressed their sorrow for the death of the Superintendent, including Gozo Minister Justyne Caruana who described her as a genuine person always ready to serve and assist.
