Driver alleged to have assaulted policemen liberated of all charges

Jean Paul Aquilina (24) from Mosta who was alleged to have assaulted two policemen at the Mgarr Bypass when he was stopped for allegedly dangerous driving in May, has been liberated from all accusations.

Aquilina was also charged with disobeying Police orders, giving false details, assaulting the two policemen, being under the influence of alcohol and not wearing a seat belt.

The Court presided by Magistrate Carol Peralta concluded that proof to substantiate these allegations had not been exhibited in Court and therefore declared Aquilina to be innocent of the charges.

The separate case in which the two policemen are charged with having used excessive force against Aquilina will continue to be heard by Magistrate Peralta next month.
