The chairman of the Malta Humanist Association, Ramon Casha, who died last Sunday aged 47, was laid to rest today.

Two funerals were held for Mr Casha, who died six months after being seriously injured in a traffic accident.

A Catholic funeral was held at his home town in Qormi this afternoon, while the Humanist Society organised a secular funeral for him at the Radisson Blu Golden Sands resort at Ghajn Tuffieha.

Ramon was more than just a fellow Humanist, Chairperson of our Organization for several years, and a friend, the association said in its statement announcing his death. He was also a generous philanthropist, a committed social activist, an invaluable contributor to informed public debate, a tireless champion of secularism, and a voice of reason who will be sorely missed.
