Katrina Borg-Cardona, Partner at Mifsud Bonnici Advocates and Chief Officer (Legal, Regulatory & Compliance) at Malta Industrial Parks (which has since rebranded to INDIS Malta), has passed away after a lengthy battle with illness.
In a post announcing the sad news on social media, husband Aron Mifsud Bonnici, who is Managing Partner at the same law firm, wrote “she fortified me and consoled me without fail, from our student years up until the very end,” adding that she will be missed by her two boys, her mother, family and friends.
“Katrina was an accomplished lawyer who took pride in her work and who demonstrated strong leadership throughout her career. She worked hard, yet was generous with time for our family,” he continued of her professional career, within which she specialised in contract law and public procurement, affirming that the family will always treasure her memory.
Going on to thank family and well-wishers for their words of sympathy, as well as the nursing staff at the Royal Marsden Hospital, Dr Mifsud Bonnici also extended his thanks to the team at Puttinu Cares, the Franciscan Fathers and others who supported the family in London.
He takes over from Alejandro Gosttuski, who will now take on the role of an Advisor.
