Controversy over Carnival float

Just one month before the carnival atmosphere kicks off in Malta, a controversy has erupted about a float being built by one of the enthusiasts, which depicts Archbishop Charles Scicluna and with the St Joseph Home in the background, with implications about the child abuse cases which had taken place in this Home years ago.

The float is being deemed offensive, and it appears the carnival organisers within Festivals Malta are insisting with the builder to effect changes to the float according to a sketch approved by the organisers, in order to eliminate any association which could turn out to be libellous.

tvm.com.mt is informed that contacts are underway between the directors of Festivals Malta and the builder, aimed at finding a solution. Whilst declaring he is not against satire during carnival, Archbishop Charles Scicluna stated that the float’s message is not right. The directors of Dar San Ġużepp are likewise considering instituting legal action in regard to this float.

Sources close to Festivals Malta have told TVM that unless the float is modified according to the approved sketch, it will not be allowed to take part in the carnival defile’.
