SOHC Head with cam box bolt holes cut through into inlet port?

Hi

I have a Fiat Punto GT SOHC head I wish to make use of.

During inspection I noted that two of the cam box bolt holes have been cut right down into both inner inlet ports. I will add some photos.

Does this render the head scrap? How did it pass Fiat QC like that?!
