Po­lice In­spec­tor found in con­tempt of court, fined €200 for fail­ing to show up 7 times

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

A po­lice in­spec­tor has been found to be in con­tempt of court and fined €200 af­ter she con­sis­tently failed to show up in a case that has, as a re­sult, not even started.

Mag­is­trate Donatella Frendo Dimech said In­spec­tor Mary Edel Camil­leri had not even brought the sus­pect – Alexan­dra Dal­mas – to court and the charges have never been read out. Ms Dal­mas is on the po­lice wanted list.

In a de­cree the court said the in­spec­tor had failed to show up on seven dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions and had not even made an ar­raign­ment. This was de­plorable and amounted to con­tempt not only to­wards the courts but also the administration of jus­tice.

The Jus­tice and Home Af­fairs Min­is­ters and the Po­lice Com­mis­sioner were no­ti­fied about the de­cree.
