Libyan who stabbed fellow Libyan with pen-knife gets suspended sentence
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.
Inspectors Robert Vella and Jonathan Ransley prosecuted.
