Man who stabbed wife’s lover in court again, charged with threats

Malta Independent - - NEWS - Gabriel Schem­bri

A man who was given a sus­pended sen­tence for stab­bing his wife’s lover, in a case which oc­curred three days ago, was ar­raigned be­fore the courts again yes­ter­day. This time, he is be­ing charged with threat­en­ing the same per­son again.

Last Fri­day, Mo­hamed Mokhatr Mo­hamed Jamhur, who lives in Val­letta was handed an 18-month sus­pended sen­tence for three years. He was also or­dered to pay a fine of €164.

He had ad­mit­ted to the charge of slightly in­jur­ing an­other Libyan, Nader Ab­du­laziz El­ge­rian. The ac­cused had also pleaded guilty to at­tempted griev­ous bod­ily harm while ad­mit­ting that he was car­ry­ing a knife with­out the needed per­mit.

The ar­gu­ment be­tween the two broke out when the ac­cused caught his wife with the al­leged vic­tim. The court had heard how Mr El­ge­rian was stabbed in the shoul­der.

Hours af­ter the first ar­raign­ment, the man found Mr Aziz in Val­letta, near the Tri­tons foun­tain and al­legedly threat­ened him. The ac­cused de­nied the charges re­lated to threats.

Po­lice in­spec­tor Jef­frey Sci­cluna told Mag­is­trate Aaron Bugeja that the two re­ports were filed by the same per­son – the al­leged vic­tim.

Ap­pear­ing for the ac­cused, de­fence lawyer Martin Fenech said this report could be false sim­ply to get the man locked up in jail. The pros­e­cu­tion ob­jected the de­fence’s re­quest for bail.

Stat­ing that it would be pre­ma­ture to grant bail to the ac­cused, the mag­is­trate de­nied bail. Mag­is­trate Bugeja then in­structed the pros­e­cu­tion to call on Mr El­ge­rian to tes­tify in the next sit­ting.
