A substantial number of armed Police officers was observed at Zabbar this morning, in the vicinity of St James Hospital.
Some of the officers, who arrived on site in vans at about 11.15 a.m., were hooded and heavily armed, and Police dogs were also in evidence. The area around the hospital was closed off, and no one was allowed to move through the area.
TVM is informed that this could possibly have been a security operation, as one of the men charged with the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia was taken to the hospital. In fact, a van from the Corradino Correctional Facility was also 0bserved at the scene.
This week George Degiorgio presented a request in Court to be given treatment at a private clinic, as he was suffering from pain in his shoulder.
