Qala's anger at Scicluna, lawyers question lineage PAGE 6 Greylisted Malta? Property tax ruse for defaulters angers industry €1.95 MATTHEW VELLA ARCHBISHOP Charles Scicluna was escort- ed into the Gozo law courts on Friday with heightened security at the Citadella: the parking area below the bastions had been shut off from public access, and at least six police officers stood guard near the entrance of the historic fort. The apprehension was understandable. He emerged two hours later to a baying crowd of some 20 Qala residents hurling insults at him for having so easily allowed the compa- ny Carravan to take control of a foundation with disputed claims to vast amounts of land. Scicluna was testifying as a witness in a court case instituted by lawyer Patrick Valentino, the representative of Carravan Ltd, to challenge the property titles held by Qala residents on land now claimed to belong to a 17th century foundation that long time ago arbitrarily swept up swathes of lands in Qala and Nadur. PAGE 3 TRANS POLITICAL THE MALTATODAY VIEW ON BYRON CAMILLERI The minister who ignored the red light warning on prison must be sacked from public office EDITORIAL MT2 GOZO LAND GRAB Charles Scicluna claims he was not aware of Carravan's intentions LUKE VELLA THE Malta Developers Associ- ation (MDA) disassociated itself from a lambasted tax measure that allows defaulters to not pay any tax due on the transfer of property purchased before March 2021, against their ar- rears. The measure was dubbed an unfair practice by the Cham- ber of Commerce, for benefit- ing defaulters at the expense of those who have their taxes in order. Yesterday Malta's construc- tion lobby – under public scru- tiny as the possible benefiter of the rules – called out the discriminatory measure. "Gov- ernment should find a way to collect tax arrears from de- faulting taxpayers, but there are various ways how this can be done without creating an un-level playing field," MDA director-general Deborah Schembri said. How new candidates will challenge the grammar of politics PG12 Archbishop Charles Scicluna enters the Gozo law courts on Friday, 12 November, accompanied by two police bodyguards and his staff Defence: are Stagno Navarras rightful heirs?
