MDA calls for reform in Lands Department

The Malta Developers Association refers to the controversy that has arisen due to the way the Government acquired part ownership of a property in Old Mint Street, Valletta.

While it waits for the Government’s internal inquiry and the Auditor General’s investigation to throw light on the circumstances of the case, the MDA welcomes with satisfaction the Prime Minister’s declaration that, if something wrong emerges from the investigations, what has occurred will be taken back and all the necessary decisions will be taken to remedy the situation.

Despite all this, the MDA cannot but note the discriminatory way in which the Lands Department has treated this case to the detriment of numerous citizens whose land has been expropriated by Government or requested to redeem their ground rent. These have been waiting for long years under numerous administrations to be granted their rights. This must be considered also in the light of the huge difficulties the ordinary citizen faces when he tries to find Government land to exchange with his property, which has been expropriated.

The MDA appeals to the Government to conduct a thorough reform of the Lands Department so that it will be in a position to carry out its obligations and give a good service to all citizens.

L-MDA tappella għal riforma fid-Dipartiment tal-Artijiet

Il-Malta Developers Association (MDA) tirreferi għal kontroversja li nqalgħet minħabba l-mod kif il-Gvern akkwista sehem ta’ proprjetà fi Triq Zekka, il-Belt Valletta.

Filwawt li tistenna li l-inkjesta interna tal-Gvern u l-investigazzjoni tal-Awditur Ġenerali jwasslu biex jintefa’ dawl fuq iċ-ċirkostanzi tal-każ, l-MDA tilqa’ b’sodisfazzjon id-dikjarazzjoni tal-Prim Ministru fejn qal li, jekk minn dawk l-investigazzjonijiet jinstab li saret xi ħaġa ħażina, dak li sar ikun irtirat u jittieħdu d-deċiżjonijiet kollha li hemm bżonn.

Madankollu l-MDA ma tistax ma tinnotax li l-mod kif id-Dipartiment tal-Artijiet ittratta dan il-każ kien wieħed diskriminatorju ma’ diversi ċittadini li kellhom il-proprjetà tagħhom esproprijata mill-Gvern jew li talbu biex jifdu ċnus. Dawn ilhom jistennew snin twal taħt diversi amministrazzjonijiet biex jingħataw id-drittijiet tagħhom. Dan wieħed irid jikkonsidrah ukoll fid-dawl tad-diffikultajiet kbar li ċ-ċittadin ordinarju jsib ma’ wiċċu meta jipprova jsib proprjetà tal-Gvern biex titpartat mal-proprjetà tiegħu, li tkun ġiet esproprijata.

L-MDA tappella lill-Gvern biex jagħmel riforma mill-qiegħ fid-Dipartiment tal-Artijiet biex dan ikun f’pożizzjoni jaqdi d-doveri tiegħu u jagħti servizz tajjeb liċ-ċittadini kollha.
