Ser­bian in jail af­ter re­veal­ing in­for­ma­tion in a news­pa­per in­ter­view

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

A Ser­bian national in­volved in a pie-mak­ing business gave him­self away in an in­ter­view he gave to a Ser­bian news­pa­per it tran­spired in court yes­ter­day.

Thirty-seven-year-old Ivan Radovanic, who re­sides in Qawra, ad­mit­ted in court to forg­ing doc­u­ments and liv­ing in Malta il­le­gally. Ap­pear­ing be­fore Mag­is­trate Mon­ica Vella, he was also charged with fail­ing to de­clare his business with the Jobs Plus agency.

Speak­ing to a Ser­bian news­pa­per, Radovanic had claimed he made over 200 pies a day which he sold for €10 each. A com­pet­ing pie-maker filed a com­plaint to the po­lice, who then car­ried out an in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

A Jobs Plus rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Bernard Zarb, said that such cases could not be taken lightly as the gov­ern­ment was work­ing hard to crack down on such abuse.

Radovanic was sen­tenced to six months in prison. Po­lice In­spec­tor Frankie Sam­mut car­ried out the pros­e­cu­tion.
