EU is to blame for no reports of illegality – FKNK

Federazzjoni Kaċċaturi Nassaba Konservazzjonisti (FKNK) came out gunning for the European Commission on Sunday.

In a press release the FKNK condemned the illegality of shooting storks, but stressed that the situation is no longer a question of a stork being shot down or a protected bird being trapped.

They blamed what they called as ‘the draconian’ EU measures against Maltese hunters and trappers for the lack of reporting of illegal actions, as most of the FKNK members do not trust the European institutions.

FKNK further stressed that, in its opinion, the EU has cheated Maltese hunters and trappers from what once was legal, traditional and sustainable, and has ultimately used its powers to nullify all the efforts that the federation had made for its members to conform and abide to the law.
