Courts re-or­der the ar­rest of ac­cused

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Crim­i­nal Court presided over by Judge Gio­vanni Grixti yes­ter­day or­dered that the bail granted to Al­fred Galea, the man who has been charged with at­tempted mur­der fol­low­ing a stab­bing that took place at the Qormi Labour Party club, be re­voked and for Mr Galea to be placed un­der ar­rest.

Mr Galea is charged with the at­tempted mur­der of Al­fred Felice, af­ter he al­legedly stabbed him with a pen knife fol­low­ing an ar­gu­ment.

The ac­cused, a baker, was granted bail by Mag­is­trate Joe Mif­sud against a de­posit of €5,000 and a per­sonal guar­an­tee of €20,000.

The At­tor­ney Gen­eral ap­pealed the de­ci­sion handed down by the First Court, and asked the Crim­i­nal Court to re­voke the bail granted to the ac­cused. The Crim­i­nal Court ac­cepted, and or­dered the re-ar­rest of Mr Galea on the grounds that a num­ber of wit­nesses still need to give their ver­sion of events in court.

Lawyer Gianella de Marco and Gian­luca Caru­ana Curran are de­fend­ing the ac­cused while lawyer Ed­ward Gatt is rep­re­sent­ing the vic­tim, Al­fred Felice.

In­spec­tor Rod­er­ick Agius is pros­e­cut­ing.
