Fourth person charged after heroin find at airport

A fourth person was yesterday remanded in custody after being charged with the importation of 3.5 kilogrammes of heroin discovered at the airport last Wednesday.

Libyan national Faisal Mohamed Wadi, 31, who is married to a Maltese woman, was charged with conspiracy to traffic heroin and importation.

Mr Wadi, who resides in Qormi, is the fourth person to be charged over this case. He pleaded not guilty but was denied bail.

Magistrate Joseph Apap Bologna directed the director of the Corradino Correctional Facility to ensure that Mr Wadi does not come in contact with another three people also in custody over the same case.

Last Friday, 46-year-old Anna Spiteri of Marsa was charged after she was allegedly caught carrying a large quantity of heroin on her arrival from Tunisia. Another two Libyan men, Mohamed Ahmed Margash, 26, of Marsascala and Issam Abdulmawla Zbeda, 29, of Żebbuġ, also denied similar charges were remanded in custody.

Police Inspectors Stephen Gatt and Pierre Grech prosecuted while lawyers Michael Schiriha and Ian Farrugia appeared for the defendants.
