Mellieha’s Symbolic cross will be put up again after Prime Minister Robert Abela intervened in the matter.

The decision to remove the cross in the first place disappointed many, including Nationalist Party councillors in Mellieha and Opposition Leader Adrian Delia, who said they could not understand why such an action was taken.

The Mellieha Fireworks page had said they were forced to remove the cross after a complaint, which was followed by an enforcement order.

Mellieha Local Council Mayor, Dario Vella thanked PM Abela who after direct communication with him this morning, understood the situation and the cross will be restored to where it was.
