FKNK commissions legal report over ‘four’ unfair amendments

The Federation for Hunting and Conservation has presented a legal report to the Maltese government and European Commission over hunting amendments it deems unfair.

This contest follows new regulations published in October 2018, which were largely accepted by the hunting body and covered the trapping of golden plovers and song thrushes.

However, the FKNK say they disapprove of four amendments within it which they believe, ‘are devoid of any principles of fairness and justice, thus constitute a serious worry to the FKNK and it’s thousands of trapper members’.

The body is intent that the amendments are ‘effectively addressed as soon as possible’.
