Where does all the money come from?

Published: June 18, 2015 at 10:14pm

Here’s another one with a private zoo full of big cats and all kinds of other creatures, on an estate that used to be a cow farm near Siggiewi, with a large house and one or two Aston Martins (it’s hard to tell), a few guns and a girlfriend. I don’t know what he does for a living but Anton Rea Cutajar – see him below – is barely literate and the daily food, care and maintenance overheads for that set-up are enormous.

And we haven’t even begun talking permits here.

His father is Joseph Cutajar, Labour deputy mayor of Birzebbuga.

    Bix-xoghol, hotba taghmel.

    I have no doubt whatsoever that the Director General Inland Revenue is satisfied that Mr Cutajar’s income tax returns explain this outrageous lifestyle.

    I am sure that if he were not satisfied he would have instituted an investigation long ago.

    I have no reason whatsoever to doubt the integrity and competence of the head of the Revenue.

      But of course you have no doubt, Anthony – how could you?

      These are people of great honour and integrity and to top it all they form part of the elite of ‘Taghna Lkoll Club.

    Horrible, classless, semiliterate people flaunting their wealth to the praise of moronic suck ups.

    ‘Eeeee wow ir risq king prosit’

    Poor, poor animals.

    Maybe this is what the army was building that thing for.

    Is it legal to have an assualt rifle, unless it is a model?
    What is his declared income?

    • mike says:

      It is legal, Makjavel, to own the civilian version once you get a licence.

      “Civilian” version is in semi auto, meaning you press the trigger for every shot.

      “Assault rifle” is nothing but a name for the object used in close fighting during the culmination of a military attack.

      An assault rifle will have the same furniture but automatic fire is possible, and before you ask, no, you cannot modify the former into the latter.

      We tend to misinterpret the words, because anything can be used as an assault weapon: a baseball bat, a kitchen knife…

    Blokki tas-silg?

  8. Antoine Vella says:

    Needless to say, there are no MEPA permits for the zoo and, there are in fact at least 2 enforcement notices for the site which is officially described as “stables”. As often happens, the case has been dragging on for many years and no direct action taken by MEPA.

    In Malta everything is topsy turvy: those who break the law are hailed as kings (kinks) and heroes while those who respect the law and others get kicked around.

  10. Bert Gauci says:

    How do you finance such a massive illegal operation?

    An Aston and a Ferrari, Tony Montana has nothing on him.

    Here’s a little break from screeching over square engines and air conditioned safety cells.


  13. Daphne Caruana Galizia says:

    The Mafia in Italy and North America and cocaine-traffickers in Central America do ‘charity work’ too, tinnat.

    It costs relatively nothing to parade a few people in wheelchairs around the place or pay to take them out, and it’s a highly visible way of ‘looking good’ – the most visible way, in fact, because when there are wheelchairs, you can’t miss them.

    The people who really do good do so privately. You never know who they are or what they doing.

    Anton Rea Cutajar’s behaviour does not fall into the category of ‘doing good’ but of public relations for himself.

    People who are naturally good and kind do not rant and rave against suffering people who have just made a terrible journey in a rickety boat to reach Europe. They do not hate refugees.

    Anton Rea Cutajar is one of the horrible Maltese savages who infested Cecilia Malmstrom’s Facebook page with vulgar remarks and aggressive language back in 2013 when his hero Joseph Muscat was busy with Manuel Mallia, stirring the pot about pushbacks.

    Erm, having a lawn is the ultimate status symbol nowadays.

    Which explains astro-turf available in rolls at every well-meaning garden centre.
