Updates From Abner Aquilina’s Interview


A live compilation of evidence against Abner Aquilina has begun. The suspect has been charged with the rape and murder of Polish student Paulina Dembska.


CCTV showed Aquilina walking, making the sign of the cross twice. Just seconds before reportedly murdering Paulina Dembska in Sliema’s Independence Gardens, Abner Aquilina admitted to following another Maltese woman.


Aquilina stated that he had “smelt her”. Furthermore, he also told police that he “didn’t mean to hurt” Dembksa that much. Aquilina told an officer that “the devil made him do it”.
