Serb gets sus­pended sen­tence over false doc­u­ment sub­mit­ted to Job­splus

Malta Independent - - NEWS - He­lena Grech

A 24-year-old Ser­bian man, Goran Ra­kic, was given a six month im­pris­on­ment sen­tence sus­pended for two years af­ter he sub­mit­ted a let­ter of ref­er­ence to Job­splus (for­merly known as the Em­ploy­ment and Train­ing Cen­tre) which falsely stated that he had three years’ ex­pe­ri­ence at a sheet metal fac­tory.

When Job­splus rep­re­sen­ta­tives at­tempted to ver­ify the let­ter of ref­er­ence and that he had the three years’ ex­pe­ri­ence, this was found to be un­true.

Prose­cut­ing In­spec­tor Frankie Sam­mut, who is also the prin­ci­pal im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cer, did not in­sist on jail time and said that the ac­cused had fully co­op­er­ated with the po­lice. Dr Ivan Mif­sud, rep­re­sent­ing the ac­cused, said that Mr Ra­kic is still young and had made a mis­take.

Mag­is­trate Mon­ica Vella, pre­sid­ing over the case, handed Mr Ra­kic a six-month prison sen­tence, sus­pended for two years.
