Ordered to pay €117,000 in damages to a man they beat up during Isle of MTV concert

The Court has ordered two men to pay the sum of €117,000 in damages to an orthopaedic consultant after they were found guilty of having beaten him up during the Isle of MTV concert in 2013.

Consultant Jason Zammit was beaten up after the two accused, Chris Joseph Griffiths and Anuy Ogunbiyi, used physical violence on him because 45 minutes earlier he had tried to convince them to refrain from jumping about as this was disturbing those around them during the concert that was held on the Granaries. The two men denied the accusations.

The Court presided by Judge Lawrence Mintoff heard that the Police had also warned the two to desist and to stop disturbing others and they had left the area but then returned 45 minutes later and began punching Zammit.

The Court refuted allegations made by Griffiths that Zammit had expressed racist remarks addressed at Ogunbiyi with the Judge saying that in any case this did not justify their return after 45 minutes to find and beat up Zammit.
