The Court today denied bail to Nizar Mustafa Al-Gadi – the Libyan accused of murdering his former partner Dr Margaret Mifsud during the night between 18 and 19 April 2012.
He requested provisional liberty after last week the court decided that there was enough evidence to charge him with the murder of Dr Mifsud.
The lawyer of the accused did not turn up to argue in favour of the request for bail.
The police told the court that the accused has often threatened the police during this investigation; he has been arrogant and has told them that he will seek revenge. The police also said that the children of the couple are under the custody of the parents of his former partner whom he murdered and they are well looked after.
Dr Mifsud had been found dead in her car in Bahar ic-Caghaq.
Last week the court heard that below the nails of Dr Mifsud DNA tests showed that there were traces of the DNA of her former Libyan partner, similar traces of him were found on the back of the car where there was also some lipstick and saliva of Dr Mifsud.
The police believe that after he murdered his former partner from whom two children were born, he walked for 47 minutes away from her car to his car parked in Bugibba.
