PC Mark Farrugia was 'a model for others', fellow colleagues say
PC Mark Farrugia had just returned home from a night shift when he was murdered on his parents’ doorstep on 20 March, 1999.

Sixteen years have elapsed since Farrugia was shot in the back at close range at 4.45am. The murderer, a fellow police officer, was sentenced to 22 years in jail. The court had found that Farrugia was killed as payback for reporting the former police constable for driving a car without an insurance cover.

A monument was erected in Farrugia’s memory in Tarxien.

“Mark, we salute you,” the Malta Police Force said on its Facebook page.
