Abstract: The initiative to evict squatters from certain sites by the Government Property Division, spearheaded by Parliamentary Secertary Jason Azzopardi, is laudable indeed. Two potential minefields, Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq and Għajn Tuffieħa, which had been conveniently sidelined by past administrations, have been decisively addressed. Invariably, many other locations await the same treatment, as rightly highlighted by the numerous contributors to The Times online forum, including the shanty towns along l-Aħrax peninsula in Mellieħa and the various British period constructions swooped upon by squatters, like the various outposts along the Dwejra Lines and at Binġemma. While the Ġnejna boathouses provide another glaring example of illegality, one has to unravel land ownership issues at the site. Most of the sites appear to be privately owned, although the publication of an enforcement notice on site might suggest otherwise.
