Fight lands sailor home

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

An argument between two Filipino sailors on board a Maltese-flagged ship in the Gulf of Mexico ended up in a Maltese court.

Marcos Dingcong Castor, 48, was charged with grievous bodily harm after he attacked a fellow crewmember with an iron bar on the ship as it sailed in the Gulf of Mexico. Castro pleaded guilty and was handed a two-year prison sentence, suspended for four years.

Magistrate Joe Mifsud ordered that Castor be extradited to his home country to serve his sentence.
