Dies at construction site after gaining entry for theft purposes

The Police are investigating the discovery of a dead man at a construction site in St Julians. The body was discovered shortly before 6.30 a.m.

It results, from inquiries carried out by TVM, that the Police are not excluding that the victim, who according to initial information is a foreigner of East European origin, had entered the site in order to carry out a robbery.

Sources close to the investigation have confirmed to TVM that the victim is not one of the workers at this site, where work is in progress on an extension of the Westin Dragonara hotel. It is understood that strict security precautions were immediately put into place as soon as the body was discovered, as Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj was in the hotel at that time.

The Police confirmed that the man died after falling from a height of about two storeys. A medical team was summoned on site to assist the victim, but he was certified dead on site as a result of severe head wounds.

Civil Protection Department personnel were also summoned to help bring up the body. As the place where the body was found was not accessible, a crane with a cage – which happened to be on the site – was used to bring up the body, which was then transferred to the Mater Dei mortuary.

Duty Magistrate Dr Joe Mifsud was notified and appointed a number of experts, among them architect Mario Cassar and forensic doctor Mario Scerri. Inspector Matthew Spagnol from St Julians Police Station is carrying out investigations.
