Three men arrested in Sark face robbery charge

THREE 36-year-old men from Slough have been charged with robbery and wrongful imprisonment following an incident in Sark on Wednesday.


They appeared before the Ordinary Division of the Royal Court yesterday and were remanded in custody until Monday.

Ali Abbas Ahmad, Aal E Ahmad Hussain and Omar Sharif entered no pleas.

They are charged with wrongfully imprisoning two people in Sark, and robbery involving cash totalling $2,400, via a bank transfer, four mobile phones, a custom-built laptop, hard drive, various documents and a torch.

Prosecuting advocate Marc Davies asked for the men to be remanded in custody. Since robbery was one of the charges, the matter would need to be committed to the Royal Court, he said.

For the three, advocates Phoebe Cobb, David Domaille and Sam Maindonald said that they would be seeking open remand at the next hearing, set for Monday.

The matter was adjourned and the men returned to custody.

The three were arrested in Sark on Wednesday on suspicion of aggravated burglary, following a request for assistance from authorities in the island which led to Guernsey firearms officers and detectives being sent there.

A fourth man was arrested in Guernsey, but was released without charge.

Police said they were aware of many social media rumours circulating in relation to the incident.

‘We would encourage people to allow the ongoing investigation to be completed and to wait for the full facts to be heard in court before reaching their own conclusions,’ they said.
