Muscat calls on family in Comino
Labour leader Joseph Muscat this afternoon visited the only family still living in Comino, the Vella family, and heard their complaints about the absence of a government-subsidised ferry.
Dr Muscat called on brothers Anglu and Salvu Vella their sister Maria and Evangelista Buttigieg and was told that Anglu needs to go for hospital dialysis treatment three times a week, and that costs him €150 per week. Salvu suggested that a boat should be on call in such circumstances. He also complained that his pleas for assistance had so far been ignored by the government authorities.
