|Email item||Print item||
The Federation for Hunting & Conservation – Malta (FKNK), has said in a statement that on the recommendation of its Disciplinary Board, it has cancelled the membership of Christian Gauci, of Mellieha.
Mr Gauci was earlier this week convicted in Court of having been in possession of a shotgun and cartridges in a protected zone, other hunting related illegalities and relapsing.
The statement said that the Board’s recommendation was based on the seriousness of these acts, which the FKNK considers as unacceptable and strongly condemns.
A person cannot have his/her hunting licence renewed unless he/she is a member of the FKNK.
The Commissioner of Police is being informed accordingly.
