Sultana is understood to have threatened his father, with whom he lives, during a row over his drug use. It is believed to not be the first time a police report had been filed about the man’s threats.

Lawyer Yanika Camilleri, appointed as legal aid to the accused entered a not guilty plea. Bail was not requested.
