Bulgarian refuses to give name in court
A HOMELESS man accused of attempted theft has had his case continued without plea.
Nasko Hristov Angelov, of no fixed abode, is charged with being found in a house at Whinbank, Ardfern, without lawful authority and with intent to commit theft.
Speaking through an interpreter, the Bulgarian national told Oban Sher- iff Court on Monday July 25 he did not understand the charge and so did not make a plea.
The 48-year- old also refused a solicitor and to give his name and date of birth.
He told the court: ‘I have dignity. I am not a monkey. You have my passport.
‘I have not come here to be homeless. I have skills.
‘ Whatever I have been accused of is not the truth. I just want to pay a bill, even though I do not agree with it.
‘If you have proof, I will pay the fine. I am not joking.’
Sheriff Muriel Frances Lanos continued the case without plea, and, since Angelov has no fixed address, she held him in custody until his trial date set for Tuesday August 2.
