Places €20 note in passport to facilitate brother’s passage through MIA

A 24-year-old Albanian national has been sent down for six months after admitting to trying to bribe a public officer at the immigration department at Malta International Airport.

Endrit Hushi, who works in the construction industry, pleaded guilty to having tried to bribe the immigration officer on Saturday.

During accused’s arraignment before Magistrate Claire Stafrace Zammit, when accused stood with bowed head and crying, it was stated that Endrit Hushi and his brother were coming from Macedonia, and for some reason his brother was stopped by an immigration officer for further verification.

Scared that his brother would not be allowed to go through, accused placed a 20-euro note in his passport which he handed to the immigration officer with the intention of trying to bribe him.

Inspector Darren Buhagiar prosecuted. Accused was assisted by legal aid lawyer Dustin Camilleri.
