Packham was Thursday morning acquitted of charges of assault and trespass filed by the Gozo police in Victoria, after the prosecution was unable to present any form of evidence to substantiate the claim.
Packham was visibly monitoring illegal trapping while in Gozo, at which point his aggressors – owners of the land in question – arrived in a car accompanied by police officers, who proceeded to escort the conservationists out of the private walkway amid a barrage of shouting.
