Arraigned before Magistrate Claire Stafrace Zammit, the four foreign women  – three Ukrainians and a Moldovan – confirmed that they used to work for Falzon in three outlets he owned in St Venera, Pieta’ and Birkirkara.

In the presence of Falzon who stood at the bar, they gave details of how accused used to keep tabs of their work, even through security cameras at the outlets, to know who frequented the parlours. They stated that clients turned up for massages and also for sexual services. The women, ranging in age from 26 to 41, confirmed they used to handle 12 to 14 clients each every day. They added that Falzon used to pick them up in the morning to take them to work, and would take them back home in the evening. The Court was told that each client would be asked to pay 50 euro, with half going to accused Fayton Falzon.

Magistrate Stafrace Zammit released Falzon on bail against a deposit of 800 euro and a personal guarantee of 10,000 euro, with the Court ordering him not to leave the country and to sign in at a Police station three times a week.
