Two PN billboards set on fire

The Nationalist Party has condemned the arson of two PN billboards on the night of Monday 25 February, in Rabat and San Gwann.
This was the third time that PN billboards were targeted, in an election camapign punctuated by vandalism.
Also last Sunday, Alternattiva Demokratika (AD) chairperson Harry Vassallo’s residence in Sliema was vandalised at the end of the Nationalist Party meeting in Dingli Street.
An AD statement said that unidentified persons had damaged the glass pane covering the big window on the ground floor of Vassallo’s residence. The AD chairperson, his wife and his two children were not at their residence at the time of the incident.
Deputy AD Chairperson Stephen Cachia expressed the party members and activists’ unreserved solidarity with Vassallo and his family.
PN secretary-general Joe Saliba told MaltaToday yesterday evening that he “strongly condemns the act without any reservations, irrespective of whoever committed it.”
Yesterday, the Labour party condemned intolerance “in any form” referring to the vandalism visited upon Vassallo’s home. It also condemned the vandalism on the PN billboards.
“The MLP appeals for tolerance towards freedom of thought and opinion in a free and democratic society. The MLP appeals that the people behind these acts of vandalism are brought to justice as soon as possible.”
