Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Tribute from Governor

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, eminent US jurist, indefatigable defender of civil rights and gender equality, passed away a few hours ago, aged 87.

On 6 June 2017, I was honoured to host "the Notorious RBG" - as she is affectionately known to many of those who share her vision - to lunch at the Central Bank of Malta together with a few friends.

RBG may have been a mere 1.55m tall, but her intellectual and moral stature enabled her to tower and soar light years above her detractors. May her shining example serve as a global beacon.

I raise my cup of coffee to toast her. Please join me. "Cheers to absent friends!"

- Mario Vella, Governor, Central Bank of Malta -
