Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Mo­hamed Mokhatr Mo­haed Jamhur, a Libyan 25-year-old man, was yes­ter­day sen­tenced to 18 months im­pris­on­ment, sus­pended for three years after ad­mit­ting to in­jur­ing an­other Libyan man.

The in­ci­dent took place at around 4.15pm on Thurs­day af­ter­noon fol­low­ing an ar­gu­ment be­tween the two.

Mo­hamed Jamhur also ad­mit­ted to griev­ously wound­ing Nader Ab­du­laziz El­ge­rian and car­ry­ing a sharp ob­ject.

In­formed sources said the pair ar­gued over a woman, after the ac­cused re­port­edly caught the vic­tim with his girl­friend. It was also said that the ac­cused phys­i­cally hit the vic­tim but the sharp ob­ject used in the crime has not been found.

Tak­ing into con­sid­er­a­tion the ad­mis­sion of guilt, the court presided over by Mag­is­trate Char­maine Galea handed the ac­cused a sus­pended sen­tence and a fine of €164. In ad­di­tion to this, a pro­tec­tion or­der was is­sued in favour of the vic­tim.
