The Federation for Hunting and Conservation (FKNK) said it shall take legal action against Birdlife Malta after the Police Commissioner’s dismissal of Birdlife’s request. FKNK also said that it may request the Police Commissioner to investigate the filing of a false report by Birdlife Malta.

On Thursday, the police said that after investigating the criminal complaint filed by BirdLife Malta over the alleged illegally issued hunting licences, it has decided that it would not take further action.

BirdLife Malta filed a criminal complaint claiming that the licenses were issued illegally and that according to law, the Ministry of Environment had to issue such licenses and not even the Gozo Ministry.
