Assault Gives Suspended Sentence

Malta -- A 34-year-old man, said to be "well practised in martial arts" according to, has been given a two-year imprisonment sentence suspended for four years.

The sentence was handed down after the man was found guilty of causing multiple fractures to a fellow university student's nose caused by a punch. The defendant had reportedly also kicked the victim several times in the leg causing him to fall to the ground.

The incident reportedly took place on May 11 2004, when the defendant physically assaulted his younger fellow student, then 18, on a bus stop.
