Malta Public Transport investigating incident on a bus between young girl, man and driver

Malta Public Transport, which operates the public transport service, is investigating an incident which occurred early on Wednesday morning on a bus.

The incident was filmed on a mobile by a passenger who was also on the bus and was posted on social media.

In the film the young girl and an elderly man, probably her father, start arguing fiercely with the bus driver. Both of them are heard using foul language. At one point the man can be seen getting back on the bus and pulling at the perspex which separates the driver from the passengers.

A spokesperson for the company confirmed that the incident was being investigated. To date the reason for the argument is not yet known. MPT has condemned all types of violence.
