Speculators favoured over everyone else - Alternattiva Demokratika

Alternattiva Demokratika today expressed its dismay and anger at a resolution in Parliament for the change in conditions of use of public land occupied by the Corinthia Group in Pembroke.

The new conditions will mean that now the land can be used for speculation in real estate. The obscene conditions in the government's contract for the transfer of land to the db Group will now be extended to the Corinthia Group as well.

Alternattiva Demokratika Secretary General Ralph Cassar said:"Konrad Mizzi, who is piloting the motion in Parliament is justifying this deal by referring to the obscene db Group deal. This deals means more property speculation on public land. These deals favour the powerful few over the interests and quality of life of the residents of Pembroke and Saint Julians. The deal further confirms that Government is in favour of rampant property speculation and that it favours speculators over everyone else. It is further confirmations that the PLPN system is a system which favours the few over the many."
