Nine Maltese are to be taken to court for allegedly breaking the law because of the costumes they wore during the Nadur Carnival, the police said this evening.

Reacting to a statement issued earlier today by Archbishop Paul Cremona and Bishop Mario Grech, the police said the nine, aged between 20 and 35, will be accused of having: "without permission, or against the prohibition of the respective authorities, worn any civil, naval, military or air force uniform, or any ecclesiastical habit or vestment."

The police said that several other people had been booked for other contraventions which took place during the Carnival.

Further investigations are continuing.
