The European Court’s decision on song birds trapping brought various reactions with comments to TVM by Parliamentary Secretary Clint Camilleri, Birdlife and FKNK.
Parliamentary Secretary Clint Camilleri said that the decision was received with great disappointment by some 4,000 trappers. He stated that the Government is studying the European Court’s decision before taking decisions.
FKNK President, Joe Perici Calascione, stated that he was surprised by the European Court’s decision, stressing that no one considered the human aspect, that bird trapping is part of their lives. He added that they will talk with the Government to address the shortcomings which are allegedly included in the court sentence.
Birdlife’s chief executive, Mark Sultana, stated that they are waiting for the Government to observe the verdict of the European Court and that the law permitting the song birds trapping season is removed. He said that this is an indirect message on the derogation of song thrush and golden plover trapping while requesting the Government to consider its position on this derogation.
