Updated: Removal of Mepa audit officer condemned
It did not make sense for one to speak about a national environmental policy when those who were supposed to the leading made sure that those who criticised its destruction were out of the way, the PL spokesman for the environment, Leo Brincat said.
In a statement, Mr Brincat criticised the removal of Mepa’s audit officer and praised Joe Falzon for carrying out his duty seriously and with integrity.
Alternattiva Demokratika also condemened the audit officer's remoal.
In a statement, chairman Michael Briguglio said:
"The removal of Joe Falzon from the post of Mepa audit officer keeps confirming that the authority, like the government, is structured to act in the interests of big business developers, rather than for environmental protection and sustainability."
