The First Hall of the Civil Court decided that a mother can return to her home after her husband completely disappeared at the end of last year. He had allegedly set fire to the couple’s matrimonial house.
In her conclusions, Madame Justice Anna Felice said that Pauline Pisani is suffering and living in a piteous situation due to the breach of her rights as she is deprived from returning to her home.
The woman, together with her son, had left home shortly before mediation procedures started with her husband, Marcel Pisani who completely disappeared on the 31st December 2020. He is still reported as missing.
The Civil Court noted that as the house was burnt while Pisani disappeared, a magisterial inquiry was appointed and was only closed a few weeks before the case was filed.
During the inquiry, the woman couldn’t enter her home and presently, although the inquiry was concluded, she is deprived from requesting the family court to do so because, for almost a year after the separation procedures, it appears that curators have not been appointed to appear for her husband.
Judge Felice reiterated that the woman is ‘prima facie’ suffering the breach of her rights and contrary to what the Attorney General declared, the court does not find anything frivolous in the piteous situation that Pauline Pisani is facing.
Therefore, the Court decided that Pisani may return freely to the matrimonial house and reserved to vary the order if and when a good reason is given to the Court.
Meanwhile, lawyer Rachel Tua recently published, in a Facebook post, a number of photographs showing the great damage done to the Pisani family house and appealed to the public to assist Pauline and her son in the cleaning of the house next Saturday, after the court upheld her request to return to her house.
Reacting, many persons publicly declared that on Saturday they will be assisting in the cleaning of the house and to refurnish it after many of the objects at the Pisani family’s house were destroyed by fire.
