The Valletta 2018 Foundation received and accepted the resignation of Mr Sean Buhagiar from the role of Deputy Artistic Director. As has been publicly announced, the reasons for this are related to a private production of a company that Mr Buhagiar is involved in with Mr Mario Philip Azzopardi.
The Foundation declares, as Buhagiar has already announced, that the resignation has nothing to do with the work Buhagiar was contracted to carry out with the Foundation.
It is very unfortunate that a disagreement between Azzopardi and Buhagiar led to this resignation. The Foundation thanks Mr Buhagiar and remains willing to work with him in the future.
