Ħal-Far murder: Accused granted bail

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Lorin Scicluna and Francesco Fenech, the two soldiers accused of the racially-motivated murder of a Soulayman Lassana Cisse have been granted bail against a personal deposit of €30,000, personal guarantee of €20,000 and subject to remaining indoors between 7pm and 6am every day. They must also sign a bail book daily. 

The two soldiers stand accused of having murdered Lassana Cisse in cold blood, in a drive-by shooting in Ħal Far earlier this year. Lassana Cisse was walking home along a country lane after watching a football game when he was shot dead in April, apparently for the colour of his skin.
