Police checked CCTV footage after the Italian posed for a photo. The suspect admitted to intentionally damaging the steps protected as part of Malta’s cultural heritage. He was stopped by the police during the night and taken to court on Monday. The damages, assessed by the Superintendency of Cultural Heritage, amount to 400 euros.
