The Government section entrusted with cleansing and maintenance has dedicated five workers on a daily basis to remove graffiti from various areas.
Numerous messages have been painted onto private and public properties in recent weeks. The meaning of the graffiti and the motive are still not clear. A Police spokesperson confirmed that reports about these messages have been filed at Sliema and St Julians Police Stations. The spokesperson told TVM that patrols have been stepped up with the aim of catching the perpetrators.
These graffiti are considered as vandal acts and make the environment look ugly. A spokesman for the Cleansing Division said the efforts to remove or cover over the graffiti have been ongoing for nearly a month. During this period it has been noted that graffiti have been repainted over other original ones which have been removed, particularly on the Coast Road.
