Press Release 10th December, 2015
Front objects to land transfers to Sadeen Group.
Front Ħarsien ODZ reacted is objecting to any transfer of land to Sadeen Group before the publication of the heads of agreement and the finalization of the site selection process for the proposed ‘American University’ by the Malta Environment and Planning Authority.
‘MEPA CEO Johann Buttigieg had solemnly declared in a meeting of parliament’s committee on the environment that other sites may be considered as an alternative to Żonqor. Any transfer of land before this process is concluded amounts to a breach of this commitment”.
The Front described any land transfers before the publication of the agreement with Sadeen Group as symptomatic of the government’s complete disrespect towards the principles of transparency and good governance.
“From the very start the government’s dealings with Sadeen Group have been characterized by secrecy. Any land transfer before the conclusion of the site selection exercise would expose the whole process as a sham.”
