The Malta Government is being threatened from exercising its right as an EU Member State to apply correct derogations from EU Directive 79/409/EEC to still permit the continuance of Maltese traditional socio-cultural passions, as is norm in other EU Member States. This is making Maltese nationals, in particular the thousands of hunters and trappers, feel like 2nd class EU citizens. The Petition which has been collected manually since February 2009 will mostly bear signatures of Maltese nationals, however signatures from non-Maltese, in particular from other EU citizens would be most welcome. This Petition is expected to run up to the end of June 2009, and it's full text states: I the undersigned declare that I subscribe to the fundamental principle that all Maltese Nationals have the right to expect and should therefore be unconditionally granted and benefit from the same human and citizen rights as those enjoyed by other EU citizens in other EU Member States, on an equal level with all such other citizens. I understand that this Petition which will be presented to the Malta Government and the Petitions Committee of the European Parliament by the Federation for Hunting and Conservation Malta (FKNK) is intended to uphold this same fundamental principle.

Simon Vella, Malta4 years ago Comments: I am not a second class EU citizen. I was given a written guarantee by PM Eddie Fenech Adami before the EU referendum, and MIC and Dr Simon Busuttil that Spring Hunting will continue and things will even improve after full membership, I want that guarantee to be HONOURED!
