Judge Justice Riyaz Hamza said the aggravating factor was that the three showed no regard to the foreign nationals and they had pre-planned the crime.

Justice Hamza said the mitigating factors was that the three pleaded guilty and are remorseful of their actions.

The High court Judge also said that a large proportion of the items stolen were recovered.

Justice Hamza also said that prisons do not always rehabilitate offenders.

Cawa has been sentenced to one-year six months imprisonment suspended for three years while Bale and Toutou have each been sentenced to 12 months imprisonment suspended for three years.
