2 Company Directors of a well established company in the fish industry have been acquitted from all charges brought against them and have also been given back full possession and ownership of the Maltese flagged vessel Hannibal 1 as the Court found them not guilty of any regulatory breaches. Defence lawyer Dr Joseph Giglio from LexPractis Advocates appeared for the accused. The Court did not find the Company Directors in breach of the “Fishing Vessel Regulations” S.L 425.07 nor in breach of the Enforcement of Sea Fishing Contraventions Order S.L 425.08. Moreover, the Court acquitted the two Company Directors for being in breach of EU Regulation which regulates compliance with Common Fisheries Policy.
