What happened was that I received a phone call on Tuesdat evening to go to the Depot in Floriana. She had arrived before me with her mother, and the girl was taken up with PS24.
At that point I saw none of them. The kids, I didn’t see any of them because… with my mother-in-law and the girl, and I went downstairs and I was beaten black and blue.
