The brothers face charges involving the use of scanners for the withdrawal of cash from several ATMs in Suva two years ago.

On the first count of money laundering, it’s alleged in December 2017, they were engaged directly or indirectly in obtaining $95,590 knowing it was the proceeds of crime.

For the second count of attempting to obtain property by deception, it’s alleged they procured $41,540 from BSP with the intention to permanently deprive the bank of the money.

There is another count involving $203,009 suspected of being proceeds of crime.

Their trial is expected to start later this year.

The matter has been adjourned to April 30th.
