This morning BirdLife Malta Chief Executive Mark Sultana was out birdwatching in the vicinity of Jerma in Marsaskala. On his return to the car, he found that it had been vandalised. All four tyres of his parked car were slashed by an unknown individual or individuals.
The area where this happened is well known for illegal hunting activities. Sultana immediately filed a report at the police station and investigations are ongoing.
BirdLife Malta condemns this vandal and cowardly act and expresses solidarity with its CEO Mark Sultana.
