Before Magistrate Caroline Farrugia Frendo, Mizzi was charged with attempting to kill a man by stabbing him multiple times, causing him grievous injuries, breaching the peace, making threats and being in possession of a knife without a license. He pleaded not guilty to all charges.

The court heard how the accused is unemployed and has a drug problem.

 

The court requested the director of prisons to administer a medical exam and give Mizzi the necessary treatment.
