      Alternattiva Demokratika-the green party
      10, Manwel Dimech street,
      Sliema.

      Media Release 1/7/03
       "Residents rights should be protected" AD
       
      Alternattiva Demokratika - The Green Party expressed its support of two
       Sliema women who have asked the court to stop their landlord contractor
       from making their house uninhabitable by dumping debris in their garden.
       
      Michael Briguglio, AD's Sliema Local Councillor, said
       
      "The Green Party is supporting the application for a warrant of
       prohibitory injunction in the Civil Court that has been filed by Beatrice 
      and Maria Carmela Lapira against the company that has commenced
       excavation and construction works on a plot of land adjacent to the house 
      they live in St Agatha Street, Sliema. The dividing wall between the
       Lapiras' garden and the plot of land has been demolised, and building
       debris has been dumped in their garden. We are therefore supporting the
       Lapiras' appeal to the court to halt the work."
       
      "Construction has become a permanent characteristic of Sliema. There are
       instances when construction waste is found on pavements, roads, and even
       close to the sea. In other instances, residents suffer from malpractice
       when construction is carried out. It is clear that greater law
       enforcement is required in this area by the police, local wardens and the 
      Malta Enforcement and Planning Authority."
       
      "Alternattiva Demokratika demands that the least that could be done is
       that residents are treated fairly when such works are carried out. Many
       times contractors seem to be given priority, and many residents tend to
       feel powerless in reclaiming their rights." 
       
      Michael Briguglio also spoke about residents' rights in other areas.
       
      "At times powerlessness also exists in other areas. A frequent example is 
      when residents buy property - especially new - from contractors who do
       not live up to the expectations of those who purchased  property. Such
       residents, especially first-time buyers, find it very difficult to take
       action to ensure their rights due to bureaucratic hurdles."
       
      "Measures should be taken to ensure that the legal system is easily
       accessible to residents and to those who purchase or rent property. MEPA
       regulations should also make it easier for residents to monitor
       applications," concluded Michael Briguglio.

       "Id-drittijiet tar-Residenti ghandhom jigu ssalvagwardjati" AD
       
      Alternattiva Demokratika - The Green Party esprimiet l-appogg ghal zewg
       nisa Slimizi li talbu lill-Qorti biex twaqqaf kuntrattur li hu s-sid
       tad-dar fejn joqoghdu milli jaghmilha impossibli li joqoghdu fid-dar
       minhabba li qed iwaddab skart tal-kostruzzjoni fil-gnien tad-dar. 
       
      Michael Briguglio, il-Kunsillier ta' AD f'Tas-Sliema, qal
       
      "AD qed tappoggja l-applikazzjoni li ghamlu Beatrice u Maria Carmela
       Lapira  fil-Qorti kontra l-kumpanija li bdiet xoghol ta' thaffir u
       kostruzzjoni fuq art hdejn id-dar li joqoghdu fiha fi Triq Sant Agatha,
       Tas-Sliema. Il-hajt bejn il-gnien tad-dar u l-art fejn qed isiru
       x-xogholijiet gie mwaqqa', u skart tal-kostruzzjoni twaddab fil-gnien.
       Ghalhekk qeghdin nappggjaw it-talba lill-Qorti biex ix-xoghol jitwaqqaf." 
       
      "Il-kostruzzjoni sar karatteristika permanenti f'Tas-Sliema. Hemm ezempju 
      fejn skart tal-kostruzzjoni jinstab fuq il-bankini, toroq, u anke vicin
       il-bahar. Ezempji ohra jinkludu dawk meta residenti isofru minn prattika
       hazina meta jsir xoghol ta' kostruzzjoni. Hija haga cara li hemm bzonn
       iktar infurzar tal-ligijiet mill-Pulizija, Gwardjani Lokali u l-Awtorita' 
      Maltija ghall-Ambjent u l-Ippjanar." 
       
      "Alternattiva Demokratika tesigi li l-inqas li jista' jsir hu li
       r-residenti jigu trattati b'mod gust meta dan it-tip ta' xoghol isir.
       Hafna drabi jidher li kuntratturi jinghataw priorita', u bosta residenti
       ihossuhom bla poter biex jissalvagwardjaw id-drittijiet taghhom." 
       
      Michael Briguglio tkellem ukoll dwar id-drittijiet tar-residenti f'oqsma ohra
       
      "Xi drabi residenti ihossuhom bla poter f'oqsma ohra wkoll. Ezempju
       frekwenti hu dak ta' meta residenti jixtru propjeta' - specjalment gdida
       -  minn kuntratturi li ma jilhqux l-aspettattivi ta' dawk li xtraw
       il-propjeta'. Residenti bhal dawn, spejalment dawk li jkunu xtraw
       il-propjeta' ghall-ewwel darba, isibuha difficli hafna li jiehdu azzjoni
       biex jissalvagwadjaw id-drittijiet taghhom minhabba burokrazija zejda." 
       
      "Ghandhom jigu introdotti mizuri biex jigi zgurat li s-sistema legali
       tkun facilment accessibli ghar-residenti u ghall-dawk li jixtru jew jikru 
      l-propjeta'. Barra minn hekk, ir-regoli tal-MEPA ghandhom jaghmuha iktar
       facli ghar-residenti biex jimmonitorjaw applikazzjonijiet ghal zvilupp."
