The two Romanians who robbed a Nigerian at a cash point in Sodertalje have been sentenced to one year each in prison.
The Romanians who in September stormed the Nordea Bank cashpoint in Sodertalje when the man (name withheld) was withdrawing money from his account, beat him up and dispossessed him of his hard-earned money.
After robbing and subjecting the man to a thorough beating, they took to their heels but were later arrested after the police in Sodertalje were tipped off by a member of the public who was around the scene of the robbery.
The two robbers were arraigned before the Sodertalje Tingsratt (court).
The judge at the Sodertalje Court (Tingsratt), after hearing the arguments from both the prosecution and the defence lawyers, however, found the culprits guilty and were sentenced to one year each in prison.
The plaintiff was happy that justice was allowed to take its course but expressed reservation over the alleged meagre compensation awarded to him by the court after being subjected to inhuman treatment by the robbers and losing his personal effects and money to them.
He told the African News that he went through physical and psychological trauma during the period but despite all he went through, he was assigned pittance by the court.
