Trio deny bank fraud scheme

Three men denied charges related to bank card fraud at Magistrates' Court this week.

Tiberiu Gavrila, 44 and Radu Asavei pleaded not guilty to 15 counts of possession of fake ATM cards between January 20 and 30.

Mr Gavrila, from Romania, and Mr Asavei, from Britain, also pleaded not guilty to conspiring to steal money from HSBC Bermuda and other banks.

The pair, along with Eldon Robinson, 52, of St George's, denied being in a conspiracy to remove the stolen money from Bermuda.

The alleged conspiracies took place between an unknown date and January 30.

The three were released on $5,000 bail each and the case was adjourned until April 8.

Mr Gavrila and Mr Asavei were ordered to surrender their passports, report to Hamilton Police Station three times a week and to stay at their present address in Pembroke.

Mr Robinson was ordered to visit Hamilton Police Station once a week.
