Two young men, an 18-year-old and a 19-year-old, both from Marsa, yes­ter­day ad­mit­ted to hav­ing had sex with un­der­age girls ear­lier this year.

18-year-old El­ton Meli was charged with de­fil­ing a 13-yearold girl and par­tic­i­pat­ing in sex­ual acts with her. His friend, 19-year-old Ja­son Mamo, was charged with par­tic­i­pat­ing in sex­ual acts with a 15-year-old girl.

A court heard how the two men picked up the girls in Santa Lu­cija and then drove in two cars to­wards Marsa, where they split up. The girls later told so­cial work­ers from Ap­poġġ that they had had sex with the men. A po­lice re­port was then filed.

Mag­is­trate Francesco Depasquale con­sid­ered the men’s clean po­lice record when he placed Mr Meli on pro­ba­tion for two and a half years and Mr Mamo for two years.

In­spec­tor Joseph Busut­til pros­e­cuted. Lawyer Robert Galea ap­peared for Mr Meli. Dr David Far­ru­gia Sacco de­fended Mr Mamo.
