The owner of the stables that were found to be housing over 80 migrants has turned the finger at Maltese authorities for their “vindicative” destruction of his property.
“They came in and closed the place, they came and broke everything without even informing us, they broke everything out of malice,” the man told One News
“I’m not feeling happy,” he continued.
More than 80 migrants were found living in the squalid conditions. In some cases, up to 10 people were living in the same small stable, with around four people in every seven square metres. Some 40 of them have been arrested, mostly for being in Malta illegally.
