Two foreigners who were arrested recently for having robbed a villa in Seminyak could face 12 years in prison, prosecutors said.

Both ND, an Italian national, and GLS from U.K. reportedly held Principe Nerini,41, and his wife Camilla Guadagnuolo, 31, (both from Italy) in captivity at their own residence on Jalan Nakula before forcing them to reveal their safety box’s password. 

The losses were estimated at around IDR 5.8 billion (US$ 405,440). The victims were cited by local reports as “trading moguls.” ND reportedly came up with the plan to rob his former boss Nerini because the latter had offended him in the past.

“The two accused are suspected of having planned the crime,” said Badung Prosecutors’ Office spokesman Imran Yusuf.

Both ND and GLS will be detained at the Kuta Police headquarters pending their trial at the Denpasar District Court.

Local outlets previously reported that there were two other suspects in the crime (a Russian national and a Polish) who remain at large.
