Somali imprisoned for stabbing two men during fight

37-year old Somali, Duale Abokor Mustafa, who lives in Xewkija Gozo, was sentenced to two years in prison for grievously wounding two other Somalis in a stabbing incident. He was also found guilty of threatening Nurdin Farah Saad.

Mustafa was acquitted of the attempted murder charge of Saad and of Jimale Sulub Ismail, however Magistrate Joe Mifsud ordered him not to approach the two other wounded men in order to protect them.

Magistrate Mifsud noted that the greater part of foreigners who live in Malta are peaceful people and observe the law, however the court expressed concern on the increase of crime cases by a small group of foreigners.

Evidence in Court showed that the men involved in the fight were drunk while the accused admitted that he was so drunk that he did not remember what happened during the fight on the 14th of October 2015 in Pjazza San Ġwann Battista at Xewkija.

Magistrate Mifsud also extended by a year a suspended sentence against Mustafa who four years ago admitted damaging a car and was drunk in a public place.
