Communists call for a change in Maltese Detention Policy
The Communist Party of Malta considers that the visit made by the four MPs to the closed detention centre at Ħal Far could have been seen as a provocation. Irregular immigration should not be subject to any detention policy.
"On the contrary, it should be one that shows solidarity with these immigrants. These people are victims of a capitalist economic system where conflict, poverty, exploitation and slavery are an integral part of this economic system."
The Party calls upon the Maltese parliament to change the detention policy to a one in favour of open centres. On European level, Malta should stand firm for a compulsory burden sharing.
