Irresponsible acts risk throwing away a nation’s sacrifice, says Malta Chamber

The Malta Chamber of Commerce condemned the spontaneous celebrations that took place yesterday in connection with Floriana FC being awarded the Premiere football league title.

“The behaviour of the few hundred people who gathered on the Granaries yesterday was most irresponsible and deplorable” – said The Chamber in a statement issued on Tuesday.

It continued to explain that the lack of discipline shown by the Floriana FC supporters is a slap in the face for the country’s health workers, the vulnerable people, businesses who shut down to protect their clients, and towards the rest of society that has complied with the directives of the authorities, said the Malta Chamber.

It was also mentioned how enforcement last night also left much to be desired. The lack of preparedness on the part of the authorities allowed the irresponsibility of the few to potentially jeopardize months of sacrifices and hardships of an entire society, stated the Malta Chamber.
