A criminologist, a psychologist and a psychiatrist are helping the police in investigations on cases of crucified cats in Mosta, which are regularly found on the 16th of the month.

Replying to a parliamentary question submitted by PN MP Jason Azzopardi, Home Affairs Minister Manuel Mallia said most often, perpetrators in such cases work alone and there may not be witnesses to help in investigations.

In most the animals would have been frozen before they are crucified and this makes it more complicated for the police to solve the case. Yet Dr Mallia assured without going into much detail that the police are doing their best to solve the case.
