A number of Nadur residents staged an angry demonstration in Victoria yesterday, protesting against the transfer of their priest, by the Bishop of Gozo, Mgr Mario Grech, to the Kercem parish last week. The protest started from Independence Square and culminated outside the Bishop’s Palace in Republic Street.
The protesters were demanding the return of Fr Brian Meilak to Nadur, where he was previously working closely with the local youth, Radio Luminarja and especially the elderly residents of Nadur.
The protest was very vociferous and many of the protestors carried placards and horns, they demanded to speak to the Bishop, but instead his private secretary came out and spoke briefly to them on the stairs of the Curia.
