Following problems flagged by members on accessing the MDB loan scheme, the Malta Chamber of...
banning trouble makers as a deterrent – On 13th November the Parliamentary
Social Affairs Committee (SAC) met to follow up on the report Towards More
Security and Good Order in Paceville. This report included an extensive list
of issues raised by members of the commercial association, residents in the
area and council members, amongst others. The report speaks about the all the
problematic issues in Paceville, amongst which security, waste management,
excessive noise, lack of CCTV cameras and so on.
Philip Fenech, GRTU deputy president
and Paceville business community representative was also present. During the
meeting Mr Fenech proposed a solution to one of the most sensitive issues in
Paceville, which is violence and aggressive incidents which end up as criminal
offences. Mr Fenech proposed that a deterrent would be initiated whereby
trouble makers would be banned from being in Paceville during specific times
and for a specific period. This he said because fines are not effective enough
and banning trouble makers from being in the place they enjoy creating trouble
in would further discourage them from causing trouble.
Mr Fenech also mentioned the need to increase the level of
security in the area, cameras should be positioned in a way to have a broader
view so that any incidents witnessed can be recorded efficiently. These images
will also assist police officers in their criminal enquiries.
