The Planning authority took action against the Minister for Gozo after subcontractors, engaged by the Ministry, were caught on camera throwing material into the sea in Marsalforn.
In a press release, the Planning Authority said her officials immediately went on site and immediately fined the contractor, while they asked him to remove all the dumped material until the zone is returned to its original state. The Planning Authority said it will continue to monitor the area until its command is fulfilled.
During the day, Newsbook.com.mt attempted to get the Minister for Gozo’s reaction on this action in Marsalforn port. Both Minister Justyne Caruana and her spokesperson were unable to make any comments.
Meanwhile, both Żebbuġ’s Vice Mayor Daniel Cordina and Councillor Sandra Grech said the works being done stopped immediately.
