Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has confirmed he has taken a decision on how to help the two survivors of last April’s racist drive-by murder of Lassana Cisse Souleymane in Ħal Far.

“We made contact last weekend with the NGOs who had submitted requests on behalf of the two victims,” Muscat told the press. “I don’t think it’s right to delve into the personal details, but the feedback given by the NGOs in writing was that they were satisfied with the government’s decision.”

Gambian national Mohammed Diallo and Guinean national Ibrahim Bah were shot while walking along Triq tal-Ġebel, moments after Ivorian national Lassana Cisse Souleymane was shot dead.

Two young soldiers, Francesco Fenech and Lorin Scicluna, have since been charged with the racially motivated murder of Cisse Souleymane and the attempted murder of Bah and Diallo.

Following the arrests, Bah urged the Maltese state to take care of himself and Diallo, warning that Diallo might have to undergo another operation for injuries sustained in the shooting.

Muscat last month pledged that the government will help the two victims, stating in a campaign rally that: “We will make sure that these two people won’t encounter any bureaucratic problems”.
