The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

Ref­er­ence is made to re­ports in the press ear­lier this week quot­ing posts on so­cial me­dia al­leg­ing that specks of paint em­a­nat­ing from Palumbo Malta Ship­yard have stained ve­hi­cles and build­ings in the San Ġwann T’Għuxa area, in Cospicua.

These claims are to­tally un­founded,Palumbo said in a state­ment.

Po­lice and of­fi­cials from the En­vi­ron­ment Re­sources Au­thor­ity in­spected the ship­yard in re­cent days to in­ves­ti­gate the above men­tioned al­le­ga­tions and es­tab­lished that all paint­ing work is be­ing car­ried out in line with cor­rect pro­ce­dure.

Fur­ther­more, Palumbo wishes to state that the paint used on ves­sels in the dry­dock is be­ing ap­plied by roller and not by means of spray.

Palumbo can as­sure there is ab­so­lutely no ba­sis for these al­le­ga­tions.
