Libyan accused of throwing out flat's furniture
A 33-year-old Libyan who lives in St Paul’s Bay was this morning granted bail against a personal guarantee of €3,000 after he pleaded not guilty to misappropriating €4,000 worth of furniture.
Police Inspector Joseph Busuttil told the court that the police were looking for El Shahumi Isam Mohamed, who was renting a furnished apartment from James Grech, to carry out a warrant of arrest for an unrelated issue.
The police went to Mr Mohamed’s apartment with Mr Grech, the owner, and there they found the apartment bare, without any furniture
Mr Mohamed claimed he threw away the furniture because it had been infested by woodworm.
