A Moroccan man who lives in Malta was arraigned in court today, and was accused of acquiring false documentation and making false statements to the authorities.

Sealiti Brahim, a 51-year-old who lives in Nadur, pleaded guilty to all the charges brought against him.

It appears the man, who could not apply for asylum, bought the documents from a Libyan person for 2,000.

The court, presided by Magistrate Doreen Clarke, handed the man an 18-month prison sentence suspended for three years. 

Inspector Frankie Sammut prosecuted.

Lawyer Noel Cutajar led the defence.
