By Aaron Humes: 28 year old Jeorji Petrov, and 25 year old Halid Yuksel Aptula have already pleaded guilty to multiple counts of theft and are serving a concurrent 12-month prison sentence.
In May of this year, the Bulgarian nationals were caught stealing from the Belize Bank ATM through a fraudulent scheme; now there is an application before the court to confiscate their personal belongings which included cash, a car and other items were taken from them by the police during their investigation.
The appearance before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer was shortlived because the court did not have a translator present; that person is out of the country.
As the pair appealed to the Senior Magistrate to explain, she stated that the presence of their translator is very important because she has to make sure that they are understanding the proceedings in their native language for clarity.
The case of the Bulgarians were further adjourned for August 17, 2016.
