Malta’s Prime Minister orders halt to all demolition work

The Prime Minister has ordered all excavation and demolition work in Malta to be suspended.

Joseph Muscat made the announcement just hours after a wall collapsed at a house in Hamrun in the second such incident in less than a week and the third in two months.

He said that no more excavation work will be allowed until something is done and a way forward is agreed.

The latest incident inevitably pushed the government to take immediate action in a bid to ensure public safety.

The Prime Minister met stakeholders in the building industry, a meeting which was set up following the collapse of a building in Mellieha last week.
