The Gozo Tourism Association said that it strongly condemns the acts of vandalism carried out by irresponsible individual/s on the Qbajjar Battery. This building was vandalised through the painting of graffiti and breaking of windows.
The GTA said that it “acknowledges the efforts being done by the Ministry for Tourism, the Malta Tourism Authority and the Ministry for Gozo, in order to attract further tourists to Gozo. Therefore it is deplorable that such an act of vandalism is giving a bad name to our island.”
The GTA added that it “would like to encourage the Gozitans to take more care of the island’s heritage, while the Association hopes that the competent authorities take the necessary actions to remedy the damage done.”
“Furthermore these historical places are to be restored and renovated and opened up to the general public as tourist attractions, in order to enhance the Gozitan tourism product,” the GTA concluded.
