The Malta Association Police (MPA) stated that it was not consulted on the wage changes happening within the Police Force

On Facebook, the MPA said that while it is satisfied with the Minister for National Security Michael Farrugia’s statement to make some changes to the anomaly of the senior body of the Force, it is disappointed the MPA was not consulted, as it was the MPA itself who brought the anomaly to light.

On the occasion of the awards ceremony 2019, Minister Farrugia said that the anomaly will be adjusted for in the coming weeks. The Association interpreted this to be a reference to the wages of the Commissioner, the Deputy Commissioner, and Assistant Commissioners.

The MPA stressed that it has been putting pressure on the Government to fix the anomaly for months, but the Minister did not consult with them. It concluded that “this adjustment was probably made after continuous pressure exerted by the MPA.”
