After addressing the press outside St Luke's hospital on Tuesday, leader of the Nationalist Party Bernard Grech went for a walk around the grounds of St Luke's hospital to see first-hand the derelict state that it is in.

This followed the court judgment that was passed on Friday, which annulled the controversial hospitals' concession, which was supposed to result in the renovation of three hospitals - St. Luke's, Karin Grech, and Gozo General hospitals.

Grech was joined by PN MP Adrian Delia who initially filed the case against the deal, PN Spokesperson for Health Stephen Spiteri, and PN's Secretary General Michael Piccinino.

In the video, Grech and Delia can be seen pointing out broken windows and, what seem to be abandoned rooms, at St Luke's hospital.

Adrian Delia had filed the court case when he was Opposition Leader in 2018 in a bid to cancel the 99-year emphyteutical concession agreement that had originally been awarded to Vitals Global Healthcare (VGH).

Delia argued that Vitals Global Healthcare, and their heirs in title Steward Healthcare, had not fulfilled the contractual obligations tied to the deal.
