An 18-year old man was on Thursday accused of corrupting a 13-year-old girl and threatening to publish compromising pictures of the girl if she ended the relationship with him.

The 18-year-old man from Gharghur was charged on court after the girl’s mother informed the police after finding chats on her daughter’s phone indicating that they were in a sexual relationship.

Inspector Roxanne Tabone told the court the accused threatened to share intimate photographs the girl had sent him.


The prosecution explained that the man worked as a security officer at Mater Dei hospital car park. The accused worked just five minutes away from where the girl lives.

Bail was denied given the nature of the charges.
A ban on the publication of the names of those involved was ordered.

Magistrate Natasha Galea Sciberras presided.
