Families in court after 'unholy communion'

An estranged couple who came to blows in a Church sacristy after their son's Holy Communion ceremony forgave each other in court this morning and were warned by a magistrate not to harass each other in any way for a year, or else they would be imprisoned.

The incident took place at Dingli when the parents turned up separately for the Holy Communion of their seven-year-old son.

One of the parents was with a partner and arguments flared between them and their families before the ceremony started.

Matters calmed down during the ceremony but flared again afterwards as pictures were about to be taken, and the families came to blows. No one was seriously injured.

The court conditionally discharged the couple and 10 members of their families, warning them not to cause another incident within a year.

Names are not being published to protect the identity of the child.
