A court case about a fight between a lesbian couple and two young men in Hamrun was put off for the fourth time yesterday when one of the accused, the mother of one of the young men, did not turn up in court after sending a message that she was indisposed.
The court has ordered that the woman would need to present a medical certificate at the next sitting, if she was not present.
Because of her absence doctors who appeared in court to testify were told by Magistrate Joseph Apap Bologna that their testimony could not be taken as one of the accused was not present in court.
The fight broke out on 13 January at about 7.30pm when the two young women were ridiculed by two men. One of the women was injured in the face. The mother facing charges, aged 35, had gone to help her son.
The case was put off to 11 April.
