Robert Iosif Galambos, a Romanian national, was accused of cannabis cultivation which was not for his personal use.
Inspector Jonathan Ransley testified that two days ago the police were alerted to an odour emanating from the Rumanian’s Gzira apartment by residents who feared that the smell might have been that of a corpse.
Upon entering the apartment the Police found that the smell was coming from cannabis plants that were growing in two tents. The defense argued that procedurally the accused should not have been brought to court. He will be charged again in a district sitting.
