Malta Band Club Association reacts to Marsa band club admission policy WWW.MALTATODAY.COM.MT WEDNESDAY EDITION €1.00 Newspaper post EDITORIAL • PAGE 9 WEDNESDAY • 26 SEPTEMBER 2018 • ISSUE 605 • PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY AND SUNDAY JAMES DEBONO EN VIRONMENT and Resources Authority Chairman Victor Axiak insists that he went in the plan- ning board meeting "with an open mind" and only voted in favour of the 38-storey tower proposed by the db Group because all the conditions imposed by the Environment and Resources Authority were included in the permit. During the board meeting Axiak repeatedly praised the developers' consultants for addressing ecological concerns. His attitude during the meeting was described as "pathetic" by Graffitti activist Andre Callus who decried ERA's endorsement of the project which had attracted over 4,500 ob- jections. 3 Victor Axiak defends vote for db project MATTHEW AGIUS THE Attorney General (AG) has told a court that he had emailed a copy of the full Egrant inquiry to Justice minister Owen Bonnici, despite refusing to give a copy to the Leader of the Opposition. AG Peter Grech took the witness stand before Judge Robert Mangion for a lengthy grilling by lawyer Vince Galea, appearing for Opposition lead- er Adrian Delia, who is demanding a copy of the inquiry. The Attorney General has so far re- fused to pass on a copy. Grech had for- warded the inquiry to Bonnici as an attachment to a blank email, he said. "After midday I had received a letter from Dr [Pawlu] Lia on behalf of the Prime Minister and his wife saying that the inquiry should be published… I didn't feel it was right to just up and publish the inquiry as it was volumi- nous and needed to be read through."
