By BBN Staff: A Canadian woman accused of kidnapping her son and absconding to Belize for three years had her case adjourned until the end of November.
Robin Leanne Greenway-Trockstad, 33, had taken her son and fled to Belize. According to an article from Lethbridge News, the Crown prosecutor says it handed over many documents to the defence and needs time to review them. The defence also said it is going to apply to obtain third-party records from Global Affairs Canada about the woman’s actions in Belize.
In 2014, Trockstad failed to return the child from a court ordered visit to the father. The Lethbridge police department tracked her down to Mexico, Guatemala and Belize. She was caught in San Ignacio, Belize on July 9, 2017. She was jailed in Belize for failing to produce immigration documents and deported to the United States before being returned to Canada.
The child was in the care of the Belize Human Services Department before being returned to Canada where he has been reunited with his father.
Trockstad is out on bail and living with her family on conditions that prevent her from obtaining a passport and having any contact with the child.
