"Cross the road if you see your wife" Magistrate admonishes threatening husband
Carmel Blundell, 52 was jailed for six months after admitting to threatening his estranged wife.
Magistrate Doreen Clarke heard how yesterday (Monday) the accused went to St Christopher Street in Valletta and threatened his former wife. The accused admitted to harassing the woman and giving her reasons to fear him, while being under a probation order. In May 2011, Magistrate Anthony Vella had placed Blundell under a court order after finding him guilty of similar offences.
When delivering the sentence, Magistrate Doreen Clarke admonished the accused in strong terms, asking him if he fully understands the seriousness of the charges against him. She explained that when he is released from prison he is to walk away from his wife and not approach her in any way. “If she is walking on the same pavement as you, you have to cross the street”, the Magistrate told the accused. She placed the woman under a protection order for a period of three years.
Inspector Godwin Scerri prosecuted while legal aid lawyer Yana Micallef Stafrace appeared for the accused.
