PRESS RELEASE BY THE MINISTRY FOR JUSTICE, EQUALITY AND GOVERNANCE

The Ministry for Justice, Equality and Governance took note of the judgement of the First Hall Civil Court, in its Constitutional Jurisdiction, delivered earlier today by Judge Joseph Zammit Mckeon in the case ‘Emanuel Delia vs Minister for Justice, Culture and Local Government Owen Bonnici and the Director General of the Cleansing and Maintenance Division Ramon Deguara’.

After consulting the Prime Minister and the State Advocate, the Ministry declares that the government will not file an appeal, despite its right to do so by law. 

The government’s decision not to file an appeal reflects Prime Minister Robert Abela’s position on this case.
