GRTU asks for the PM’s support for lotto receivers


GRTU representative Joseph Attard has yesterday personally
presented a letter to the Prime Minister in Floriana just before he entered one
of the activities in relation to the Independence. In the letter GRTU requests the
personal intervention of the PM in respect to the current issue between the
lotto receivers, now members of GRTU, and Maltco Lotteries Ltd.

In the letter GRTU explained we had requested an
urgent meeting with the said company to discuss issues that are of cardinal
importance to both parties if one is to make sure that in the coming 10 years
there will be a situation in place which is to the benefit of both Maltco
Lotteries Ltd and the lotto receivers. GRTU has requested this urgent meeting
with Dr John Katakis, CEO of Maltco Lotteries, on a number of occasions but to
date this has not been forthcoming.

GRTU is informed that Dr John Katakis will be in Malta this
coming Monday and unless we are advised prior that a meeting would be held on
his arrival, we would then make sure that his arrival in Malta would be one
that he will remember always. GRTU emphasised to the PM that all foreign
investors to Malta are welcome as long as they do not unjustly threaten the
livelihood of SMEs by the stroke of a button from their offices.

GRTU told the PM that he should safeguard the interests of
the Maltese enterprises and as such he should ensure Maltco Lotteries meets
GRTU to discuss the urgent issues at hand.
