The shocking incident happened on 1 May at the Gozo church home run by Fon- dazzjoni Arka and the victim was left with a blackeye. The case first came to light on 24 May when Inclusion Minister Julia Farrugia Portelli said the Social Care Standards Authority had roped in the police after it received an anonymous tip on the abuse perpetrated by two carers at the church home. No details were given. However, sources privy to the investiga- tion told MaltaToday the victim, who is non-verbal, pulled the hair of a female car- er after she refused to get up from the sofa where he habitually sits. In a bid to disengage, the female carer used her shoe to hit the person, while oth- er carers who witnessed the incident just looked on. JAMES DEBONO PLANS for a 1.5km tunnel between St Andrews and St George's Bay have been scrapped, Infrastructure Malta CEO Ivan Falzon has confirmed. Instead, the roads agency will introduce two 'hairpin' turns near the Luxol Grounds to ad- dress the traffic bottleneck in Swieqi. Other tunnels proposed for the Paceville area in plans submitted almost four years ago have also been scrapped but a grade separated junction at the entrance to the entertainment hub is being considered.
