Abstract: The authorities have finally decided to bite the bullet and take decisive action against the squatters and usurpers of public land at Gnejna and St Thomas Bay. Such an action is long over due since it counters a brazen defiance of the law and the basic tenets of morality and ethics. One hopes that this is just the prelude to a systematic crackdown on the multitude of boathouses dotting our coastline - the 'boathouses' at L-Ahrax (along four different bays), at Bahar ic-Caghaq/Pembroke, the remaining ones at Delimara, and Dwejra and Dahlet Qorrot in Gozo should follow suit. The fact that only post-1967 constructions will fall within the remit of such action raises some eyebrows, presumably because of prescription - but does an older age make an illegal construction less illegal?
