A Bulgarian man has been charged after police found 38kg of drugs, estimated to be worth around  €1.5 million in the back of his truck that just arrived from Sicily.

28-year old Mustafa El Madhoun was arrested on Sunday after police inspected his truck upon arrival from Pozzallo. The drugs were eventually found in hidden compartments with the help of the police’s K-9 unit. The police announced that this discovery managed to help stop an international circuit of drug trafficking.

After arresting the man, the police found 5kg of cocaine, 4kg of heroin and 29 kg of cannabis in the truck.

His case was taken to court on Tuesday as he was accused of importing cocaine, possession of cocaine, cannabis and heroin denoting that they were not intended for personal use.

The accused’s lawyers requested a freezing order as it would affect all of Mustafa’s assets. Magistrate Doreen Clarke upheld the request for the freezing order.

Defence lawyer Jose Herrera also announced that the accused was not requesting release from preventive arrest at the arraignment stage.

Aug 2 2022 Share

Gozo shadow minister Alex Borg has recently addressed the ‘undocumented population’ in Gozo in a Facebook post.

First he announced that Gozo’s population increased by 25%, a stat which came out in the recent census released by the NSO. He did however raise concerns that this census didn’t reveal the amount of residents living with expired documents or with no documents at all.

He revealed that in the Gozitan prison, there were 12 undocumented people arrested in one day and wondered how many more there still were hiding from police and authorities.

Borg thanked the Gozitan police for their work even though they have limited resources and hoped that more arrests like that can occur on a common basis. He also pleaded to the concerned authorities to start taking more action in this problem. He also appealed to the courts in order not be complacent and not forget about this issue.

Alex Borg ended his post by promising to continue fighting for the safety of the Maltese and Gozitan people.
