The Environmental NGOs Din L-Art Helwa, Flimkien Ghal Ambjent Ahjar, Friends of the Earth Malta, Gaia Foundation, Light Pollution Awareness Group, Ramblers Association and Nature Trust (Malta) strongly condemn the vandal attacks on the cars of 3 Birdlife Volunteers at Buskett. These incidents only show how certain people have no respect towards others and enjoy performing cowardly acts on people who dedicate their free time towards the environment and civil society.
The NGOs urge the relevant authorities to intensify their work so as these culprits are caught as soon as possible and are given the punishment they deserve. Only this will show that we are living in a civilised country were law breakers will not be tolerated.
Finally the NGos again stress the need for Environment Wardens to be assigned to such sites which are so vulnerable to vandalism. The organisations also feel that CCTV cameras should be installed in all ecological and heritage sites without further delays.
