Two Europeans accused of money crimes

COURT TODAY BLOCKThere was no translator present in the District ‘C’ Magistrates Court today, and as a result a Bulgarian and Ukrainian accused of theft will spend the next two days at HMP Dodds.

Magistrate Christopher Birch had no choice but to remand 25-year-old Anton Tihomirov Nedev and Ruslan Vladimirovich Leskev, 35, after a translator was unable to attend their hearing today.

Only Nedev speaks English.

He is charged with being in possession of one Spanish driver’s licence belonging to Raimundo Severiaria Pablo and one ministry of interior card for use in connection with criminal deception.

Leskev, a Ukrainian, is charged with engaging in money laundering and being in possession of $7,580.

Both offences took place on April 1, 2016.

The two handcuffed men sat nervously in the docks of Court No.3 of the Supreme Court, which is temporarily housing the St Philip court.

As they waited for the translator to arrive to read the charges, they were seen frequently communicating with their attorney Mohia M’aat.

However, once it became clear that the translator would not be able to attend, Birch remanded the two men until April 7.

    Please do not let people like them pollute the Caribbean with their particular brand of criminality; some have become millionaires using that method of stealing in Europe – DO NOT LET THEM GET COMFORTABLE IN OUR TERRITORY!! Xx

    And yet there are some people in Barbados who do not want the biometric scanning implemented at our ports. We need each individual passing through our ports screened. The lines in Miami Int’l snake long too but they move and you still get where you’re going.

      Tricia Mondore Regardless of them opposing it, at some point in traveling globally, scanning at a port will be required. So it’s really a non-issue. They work at some workplaces here on island and they have to scan in and out even if they are going to lunch.

    Nice propaganda to help further the case for biometric scanning. I see that bajans have taken another brilliant scheme from the US and UK.

    Translator? The only foreign link them entitled to is ball and chain. Show them flash cards with pictures, A prison Van and a man standing behind Bars. Problem solved. They thought BIM was easy pickings, they got that wrong. Lock them up and throw away the key.

    It is unfortunate that the crooks target everyone and not the persons who have education but no common sense.

    Plleeeaase. We need biometric scanning at our airports?? Really?? So explain how the scan would have found out them laundreing. Oh wait they found that out without scanning. It is not being implemented because it is illegal and unconstitutional. Are you aware of why it is important to not break the ideals this nation was founded upon? Scanning fingerprints was the worst idea in a long list of bad ideas, it is expensive, illegal and offers absolutly no benifit for bajans. Moreover it would have crushed tourism cripiliing our economy. Barbados need more independent thinkers and less sheep so bad ideas like that never get off the ground.

    Well this is one more mouth for me to feed. The Caribbean need to unite and share information about these criminals to keep them out. Convict. Finger print at port of entry. Regional deportation. Case close. Keeping them in jail is my problem for another “however many” years they are imprisoned.
