A 71-year-old Maltese man has been sentenced to one year in prison after he admitted to forcing himself onto his wife after she refused to sleep with him. The court heard how the man pushed a bottle and light bulb up his wife’s vagina during an argument.
As a consequence of this the woman ran outside into the streets, completely naked, begging the neighbours for help.
Admitting his guilt, the man was charged with one year in prison. Magistrate Joseph Mifsud presided over the case, saying there will be zero tolerance for domestic violence, and that women need to be respected more in today’s society.
