There was an unusual case in Court when an 18-year-old youth from Cospicua, the publication of whose name has been banned by Court Order, was detained under arrest after being accused of sexual activities mixed with allegations of the occult.
The accused has been charged with having raped his mother’s partner. He is also accused of having injured her daughter and of having sexual intercourse with them against their will.
He is also being charged with having injured his partner’s sister and her mother and of having participated in sexual activity with his girlfriend, a minor aged 15. The accused youth, who is unemployed, denied all the accusations.
Appearing before Magistrate Rachel Montebello, the Prosecution said it was the girlfriend that had reported the alleged abuse to the Police. She complained the accused was treating her badly and was showing bad conduct.
