Prime Minister Robert Abela has extended his apologies after a video of him not wearing a mask while indoors at a restaurant emerged.

A video published by Times of Malta shows the Prime Minister was seen speaking with people at Sliema restaurant MedAsia, without wearing a mask.

“Mask use is not obligatory when seated and it was an oversight that he went to the restroom without it. In fact, the Prime Minister went in and out of the restaurant wearing the mask,” a spokesperson for the office of the Prime Minister said in a statement.

“The PM apologises for this oversight.” 

The Prime Minister has previously been spotted without a mask, while anyone else spotted without a mask is liable to a fine of up to €100.

Malta’s current COVID-19 restrictions are not allowing unvaccinated people to step foot into restaurants, bars, snack bars, gyms, among other places, effective as of today.

Should the PM be fined for his mistake?
