The presence of a pastor stood out among the scores of migrants removed from Bugibba apartments this morning.
The pastor had a residence permit and was carrying thousands of euro in cash, which he disclosed unhesitatingly to the Police. The pastor was ordered to proceed to purchase a ticket to return to Italy.
Meanwhile, TVM entered one of the blocks which had been cleared out, and evidence was seen of the large number of persons who had been residing there, many of them sleeping on mattresses on the floor.
Some rooms appeared to have been kept in a clean state, but they still lacked furniture and other basic facilities.
