Three Libyans charged with attacking the police during a protest at the Libyan embassy in Malta last March have been cleared . . .[restrict]of charges. The magistrates court decided on Wednesday that footage had failed to show them to committing any crimes.
The three — listed as Mohannid Garzadin, 30, and Salaheddin Said, 41, both living in St Paul’s Bay and Ali Bodhir, 36, of Paola — had been arrested on charges of attacking, violently resisting and disobeying police officers and of breach of the peace.
The judge, Miriam Hayman, said that there was no proof that the crowd that had gathered at the embassy intended to commit a crime.
Its aim had been to protest against injustice and oppression in Libya and to stop genocide from taking place.
