Entrepreneur Hugo Chetcuti is still receiving treatment at the Intensive Therapy Unit (ITU), with his situation still critical.
Four days after being attacked with a knife at one of his Paceville establishments, Chetcuti appears to have rallied slightly, although he is still in danger of dying. Hugo’s brother Wayne wrote on Facebook that people’s prayers are being heard, and thanked all those who had given their support to his family during these difficult times.
Chetcuti was operated on because of the serious injuries he suffered as a result of the attack by an aggressor who was arraigned in Court some 12 hours later and charged with the entrepreneur’s attempted murder.
Sources told TVM that 35-year-old Bojan Cmelik, a Serbian national, had arrived in Malta in the days preceding the attack, and it is not known whether Chetcuti and Cmelik were acquainted.
It has been reported in another section of the local media that the aggressor had been employed at one of Chetcuti’s establishments, and his employment had been terminated by one of the managers.
