Stqarrija Stampa 4 ta’ Lulju, 2015

Il-ftehim ma’ Sadeen għandu jkun ippublikat qabel il-Parlament jgħalaq għal vaganżi ta’ sajf.

F’konferenża stampa quddiem il-Parlament il-Belt, Front Ħarsien ODZ reġa tenna t-talba tiegħu biex il-Gvern jippublika l-ftehim li sar ma’ Sadeen dwar l-Universita’ ”Amerikana” ta’ Malta.

”Dan il-ftehim għandu jiġi ippublikat minufiħ qabel il-Parlament jgħalaq minħabba l-vaganżi ta’ sajf biex b’hekk ikun jista’ jsir dibattitu wiesgħa u transparenti fl-ogħla institużżjoni tal-pajjiż. Jekk ma jsirx hekk, huwa ċar li l-Gvern għandu l-intenżjoni li jibqa’ għaddej matul is-sajf bil-proċess tal-iżvilupp fuq iż-Żonqor li tinsab barra ż-żona tal-iżvilupp u għalhekk jevita l-iskrutinju mill-parlament.”

”Fl-aħħar ġimgħat l-ikbar protesta ambjentali f’Malta kienet organiżżata u hemmhekk tlabna lil Gvern biex jippublika il-ftehim li sar ma’ Sadeen immedjatament. L-appell mill- Front reġa sar ukoll waqt f’Xarabank, pero s’issa il-Gvern qallilna li beħsiebu jippublika l-ftehim meta jidhirlu hu. Dan iħalli lok biex wieħed jissuspetta li qegħdin issiru xi ftehim minn wara dahar il-pubbliku.”

Sadanitant f’reażżjoni għal dak li ntqal dal-aħħar minn Joseph Muscat rigward iż-żona fejn se tkun żviluppata l-Universita’, il-Front żied jgħid ‘li tkun assolutist u żbilanċjat jekk iż-Żonqor li hi żona barra mill-iżvilupp tiġi żviluppata, Iż-Żonqor diġa hi markata bħala park naturali. Għalhekk il-Prim Ministru għandu jiddiskuti b’mod transparenti fil-Parlament u mhux jippolitiċiżża s-sajf.’

PRESS RELEASE 4th July, 2015

“Agreement with Sadeen should be published before Parliament closes for Summer”

In a press conference in front of Parliament, Valletta, Front Harsien ODZ reiterated its call for Government’s publication of the agreement with Sadeen over the ‘American’ University of Malta.

“The agreement should be published before parliament closes for Summer holidays, so as to enable a transparent and open debate in Malta’s highest political institution. Otherwise, it will be clear that Government is intending to proceed with the development process on ODZ land in Zonqor in Summer, thus avoiding parliamentary scrutiny”.

“A few days we organised Malta’s biggest ever environmental protest and we urged Government to publish the agreement with Sadeen immediately. This appeal was also made by the Front on Xarabank, yet to date, we have only been told that Government will publish it when it deems fit to do so. This only raises suspicion that agreements are being made behind the public’s back”.

In the meantime, in reaction to Joseph Muscat’s latest statement on the development site, the Front added “if Zonqor ODZ is used for ‘American’ University, this is absolutist and not a balance. Zonqor is already designated as nature park. The Prime Minister should discuss in Parliament and not politicise summer”
