A man has reportedly been held for questioning in relation to the Balzan Pride flag that was found burnt in the early hours of this morning.
CCTV footage has since been released that shows what appears to be a man in a white shirt lowering the ropes and burning the flag with a lighter
Lovin Malta has spoken to police who are unable to confirm whether anyone has been remained for the crime.
Lovin Malta also spoke to the Deputy Mayor of Balzan, Angelo Micallef, who admitted that despite MGRM donating a new flag they are facing difficulties in hoisting it
The ropes have gone missing for the flagpole, and as it is a rather high one the council would need to hire a picker to attach the new ropes.
