BirdLife Malta said that it only recognizes the Environment Minister Aaron Farrugia in relation to birds regulations, and not with Gozo Minister Clint Camilleri.
Birdlife maintained in a statement that the decision that the Wild Birds Regulation Unit falls under the Gozo Minister is illegal according to current legislation, and it therefore presented a judicial protest in Court against the Government. It added that the Government has not yet replied to the protest after almost a month.
Birdlife Malta stated that, meanwhile, it informed the Environment Minister that, according to environment legislation, it will only communicate with him as an organisation on issue concerning birds conservation.
