A LA LINEA man charged with attempting to strangle a woman has claimed he was defending himself.

Gib-la-LineaMiguel Raul Perez Porto, representing himself at the Gibraltar Magistrates court, shrugged off the photos of the alleged victim’s injuries before claiming he was ‘merely defending himself’.

He is accused of punching and slapping the woman’s face and body before attempting to strangle her and threatening to kill her.

The court heard how she coughed up blood repeatedly.

Mr Porto has been remanded in custody and the trial will move on to the Supreme Court.
