The High Criminal Court has ordered for a man and his uncle to be mentally evaluated after they were arrested for committing robberies.
The duo was nabbed after an expat reported to police that he was robbed by two men, who posed as police officers in plain clothes before stealing his valuables and fleeing the scene.
The uncle is in his thirties while the nephew is 18 years of age. The pair blamed each other for the robberies they committed with the 18-year-old boy telling prosecutors “My uncle came to me and told me that we would go and rob expats. He involved me in the robbery and then he gave me BD50.” The uncle blamed his nephew, stating that the latter was the one who incited him to rob the man.
