In its monthly update the Office of the Director for Public Prosecutions said one was charged with theft and receiving stolen property and another with assault.

They were among 76 charged with serious offences including 23 for aggravated robbery including daylight street muggings.

The prosecutors office said three Chinese nationals were charged with money laundering.

They were alleged to have laundered amounts in excess of US$67,000.

Two of the cases were withdrawn after Nolle Prosequi were filed.
