Father and son arraigned over cocaine lab and money laundering
Oct 4 2022 Share

An elderly man and his son were remanded in custody on aggravated drug possession, money laundering as well as bail breach charges, being arraigned before magistrate Josette Demicoli this afternoon. 

Mario Brignone, 68, from Bormla and his son Josef Zammit, 30, from Marsaskala pleaded not guilty to the charges pressed against them and did not reply when asked about their employment.

The charges concern the discover of a crack cocaine lab as well as various other hard drugs. Inspector Mark Mercieca informed the court that Zammit was arrested while signing his bail book in Zabbar yesterday. 

With a large amount of cash fund on his person, a raid on his vehicle found several sachets of what is suspected to be cocaine and heroin. 

Cannabis plants were found at his residence, with cash found in his father’s house. A key was also found under the doormat and it opened the door to an abandoned residence opposite the house. More drugs and cash were located, with equipment used to manufacture crack cocaine. 

A bail request was rejected by the court in view of the risk of the men tampering with evidence. The men also did not satisfy the legal requirements for bail, with a freezing order placed over both their assets.

Oct 4 2022 Share

Having a plant collection is already cool and beneficial, but planting them in eco-friendly, visually-pleasing, and customisable pots steps up your plant collection… and who wouldn’t want that?

Here’s a fun fact – plants aid in reducing stress; so even if you don’t own plants, you should probably look into getting some.
