Buttigieg said, it was unfair for all the business that are following the restrictive measures. He questioned how such a large gathering was allowed.

The Mayor thanked the Police and Malta Tourism Authority for their hard work. However, he reiterated that such incidents will only damage the touristic attractiveness of the locality.
