The prosecution in the case against two former soldiers who stand accused of the racially-motivated murder of Lassana Cisse will not be calling any further witnesses to testify in the case.
Lorin Scicluna and Francesco Fenech were charged in May 2019 with the murder of Cisse, 42. Cisse was killed in April 2019 as he was walking home to the Hal Far Open Centre after watching a football match.
The pair are also accused of grievously injuring the man from Chad and the attempted homicide of two men from Gambia who were wounded in the attack on Cisse.
Scicluna and Fenech appeared in court this morning for another sitting in the compilation of evidence against them, during which the prosecution informed the court that it had no more witnesses to call in the case.
After dealing with some technical matters, the case was put off until July.
With no more witnesses left to hear, what remains now is for the Attorney General to issue a bill of indictment, after which the accused’s trial can begin.
Superintendent Keith Arnaud and Superintendent Trevor Micallef are prosecuting. Lawyers Franco Debono, Amadeus Cachia, Francesca Zarb and Kris Busietta are appearing for Scicluna. Lawyers Giannella de Marco and Stephen Tonna Lowell are defending Fenech. Lawyer Joe Giglio is appearing parte civile.
