K5.9 million Maybank robbery of 2013

Accused’s files in Maybank robbery missing

Magistrate Cosmas Bidar told the lawyer representing defendant, Willie Allan, to make copies of his client’s files or hand up brief for the court and police prosecution because his files could not be found in the court registry.

The files went missing after he escaped from custody.

The Committal Court directed Allan’s lawyer to bring copies of the file so that it can assist the court in assessing the evidence before it.
