Alfred Degiorgio under strict medical observation

The hunger strike by Alfred Degiorgio known as il-Fulu, is now in its third day. He is one of the three man accused of murdering Daphne Caruana Galizia. TVM is informed that Mr Degiorio is under the strict supervision of a doctor who is visiting him at least twice a day.

Degiorgio began his hunger strike in protest against the prison authorities who, as a preventive disciplinary measure along with his brother Alfred, known as ċ-Ċiniż and Marco Pace known as l-Pinzell, are not being allowed out of their cells with the other prisoners in Division 5. They are only being allowed in the morning or afternoon in order not to come into contact with David Norbert Schembri after a fight broke out between them a few months ago. The rule also applies to Schembri who is being kept in his cell while the other three prisoners are allowed out of the division.

This is not the first that inmates have gone on a hunger strike but it has always come to an end with no harm done.
