Works of art were forcibly removed from the new national art museum known as MUŻA after a mould outbreak. The museum was inaugurated in December 2018 following a €10 million investment.

In a statement on Monday PN MP Comodini Cachia said that while Bonnici boasted about the climate control system which was installed at MUŻA, he dismissed expert advice he was given on the matter.

Partit Nazzjonalista observed that works are still ongoing on the museum even on Monday morning.

Partit Nazzjonalista called on the Culture Minister to ensure that no damage is done to the works of art that has been removed from the museum, as well as that the works of art which remain inside the museum are safeguarded against any damage.
