|Email item||Print item||
Gozitan priest Fr Jesmond Gauci, who was accused of child molestation last month, was granted bail during a hearing this morning at the Gozo Court.
The bail granted previously had been revoked following an appeal that had been filed by the Attorney General, and Fr Gauci was held in custody until the witnesses have given their testimony.
Bail was granted today against a deposit of €1,000 and a €5,000 personal guarantee, as the witnesses have now testified.
On the 22nd of August, the Gozo Court on appeal, also overturned an order against the publication of the priest’s name.
