Rasana Sisse’s body was finally repatriated to her native Côte d’Ivoire, about three years after being killed in a drive-by shooting.
Foreign Minister Ian Borg announced the news on Twitter, saying: I reiterate the government’s commitment to ensure that the community is a safe place for everyone. We will continue to be in solidarity with Mr. Cisse’s family and loved ones. “
The Government of Malta has promised to cover the costs of repatriating Cisse’s body and all related costs associated with his burial.
Cisse was killed in a drive-by shooting at HalFar on his way home on April 6, 2019, which is considered a racist attack.
Two troops of Maltese soldiers – Francesco Fenech and Lorin Scicluna – were charged with his murder and another attempted murder of two men and another hit-and-run case. The victims of the attempted murder and the hit-and-run incident were also black.
Both Fenech and Scicluna have been released on bail.
