PN says gov­ern­ment should act in the face of re­cent spate of se­ri­ous crimes

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

A spate of crim­i­nal acts in the past few weeks has shown how or­gan­ised crime rings are using so­phis­ti­cated meth­ods to kill peo­ple and the gov­ern­ment should act in the face of these de­vel­op­ments, the PN said to­day. The lat­est case was a car bomb at­tack that killed busi­ness­man John Camil­leri in Buġibba on Mon­day.

“Fam­i­lies want se­cu­rity and peace of mind but are afraid that they might end up be­com­ing in­no­cent vic­tims of or­gan­ised crime,” PN Deputy Leader Beppe Fenech Adami said in a state­ment.

“In light of these in­ci­dents, the gov­ern­ment should re­act with force and de­ter­mi­na­tion so that the peo­ple be­hind these se­ri­ous at­tempts are caught and brought to jus­tice.”

Dr Fenech Adami added that the gov­ern­ment should de­clare that all the nec­es­sary investigations are tak­ing place and that the nec­es­sary re­sources have been al­lo­cated to solve these se­ri­ous crimes. The gov­ern­ment should un­der­stand that deal­ing with these de­vel­op­ments is a na­tional pri­or­ity be­cause the lives of in­no­cent peo­ple are be­ing threat­ened and en­dan­gered, he said.
