The sources, privy to the con- sultation and plans that took place on the bipartisan project launched right before 2013, said the billion-euro tunnel project would not be taking place in the foreseeable future. "Beyond the talks held by a committee appointed to over- see the studies and tenders on the project, there is absolutely no commitment on the project – COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine have only helped seal further the fate of the tunnel," the source told MaltaToday. The tunnel, championed squarely by the Muscat admin- istration but also by the Na- tionalist Party, which had first proposed it, but in recent years suggested that a final decision should be taken with a referen- dum among Gozitans, had al- ready attracted four construc- tion bids. €1.95 Verification of imported Japanese cars: action taken on fraud loophole KARL AZZOPARDI TRANSPORT Malta has increased its scru- tiny of documentation presented by car deal- ers who import used vehicles from Japan. The regulator has stepped in to supplant a process previous- ly manned by police officers, to verify the mileage declared in documentation from importers, with data available in JEVIC da- tabases. The procedure was adopted after a Malt- aToday investigation. Last June, Malta- Today revealed hun- dreds of consumers have been sold sec- ond-hand Japanese cars with tampered mileage gauges, in a racket involving at least two car dealer- ships - Rokku Auto- dealer of Għaxaq and Tal-Qasab Autosales of Qormi. Cars bought from Japanese bidding markets on the cheap because of their high mileage, would then be sold in Malta – however these had their odometers tam- pered to show low mileages.
