Suspended sentence for causing extensive damages in St Julian’s hotel and the residence of the Qatar Ambassador at Ta’ Xbiex
An American citizen who resides in Sliema was condemned to two years’ imprisonment suspended for a period of four years after admitting to accusations that he had caused damages valued at €72,000 in two hotels in St Julian’s and the residence of the Qatar Ambassador at Ta’ Xbiex.
US lawyer Mazen Mohamed Tumi admitted to having committed the three separate incidents while under the influence of drugs. The Court heard that the accused had made good the damages and promised to undergo a drugs rehabilitation programme. While delivering her sentence Magistrate Monica Vella issued a Protection Order in favour of the Qatari diplomat.
