Escapes hit and run accusations because of a mistake in the date

A Bulgarian resident at St Paul’s Bay was let off the hook as a result of an administrative procedural error as the date of his accusation was incorrect.

Simeon Nikolaw Darakhiev was accused of a hit and run incident on a vehicle in Qawra.

After Police studied CCTV footage, the Bulgarian was summoned to the Police Station and over and above being accused of the hit and run incident was added that he had driven to the Police Station under the influence of alcohol.

However, although the date of the first incident was recorded, the date of his attendance at the Station was not included. The case came before the Court last year but his defence lawyer David Bonello insisted his client should be charged afresh with the accusations. Ultimately this took more time than it should have done and ended up beyond the prescribed period.
