A HOUSEMAID’S son has denied plotting to steal £50million of jewellery from Tamara Ecclestone’s home.
Emil-Bogdan Savastru, 29, claimed he has been beaten up as he awaits trial and begged to be granted bail.
Savastru, 29, and his housemaid mother Maria Mester, 47, are accused of bypassing 24-hour security to burgle the £70 million mansion in Kensington, south west London.
The raid took place just hours after the 36-year-old heiress left the country to go on holiday in Lapland over Christmas.
The Romanian told Isleworth crown court over a videolink from Wormwood Scrubs jail: “My life has been in danger. My family has been threatened. People think I’ve got money.”
He added: "I've been contemplating suicide every single day that I've been inside."
Judge Simon Davis responded: "For what it's worth from me, but I understand your frustrations.
"I know I'm not in custody, but I've been in the criminal justice system for 40 years.
Savastru’s mother Maria Mester, 47, also denies charges over the burglary at the heiress’s West London home.
He was denied bail and the next hearing was fixed for August 6.
