Kalkara oil depot controversy
The Resources Ministry has hit out at a statement by the Opposition spokesman for Mepa, Roderick Galdes, who criticised a Mepa Board decision to approve the demolition of an old former British services oil depot on the seafront between Vittoriosa and Kalkara.
The ministry said the demolition had been recommended by experts because the building was marring the bastions and its construction had damaged them.
The building will be demolished as part of the project to restore the bastions.
