He stole some public property which was then stolen from him

Question

A man stole something from a public facility in a kaafir country, then it was stolen from him. Does he have to repay its value?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

Praise be to Allaah. 

We put this question to Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him), who answered as follows:

He is not liable for anything; it is sufficient for him to repent. And Allaah knows best.
