Xarabank presenter Peppi Azzopardi came in for a barrage of criticism when he announced the Friday night TV show would be airing an interview with Liam Debono. 

The courts stepped in and forced a change of plan, with magistrate Joe Mifsud saying the interview might prejudice proceedings against the 17-year-old, who stands accused of the attempted murder of policeman Simon Schembri. 

Despite the criticism, Mr Azzopardi insists Xarabank was right to interview the teen, and warns that the court's decision could have far-reaching implications.
