By BBN Staff: He was recently accused of attempting to kidnap an eight-year-old boy in broad daylight and in front of his siblings in Belmopan and British national, Roger Wallis, 63, was arrested for that crime and remanded to prison.
But last week, he reportedly applied for Supreme Court bail before Justice Adolph Lucas.
At the time, the prosecution did not object to bail.
However, the judge did not make a decision then until yesterday after reviewing the police report, witness statements, and other documents.
After two hours, Justice Lucas denied bail to Wallis.
That is because his legal counsel, Hurl Hamilton, was unable to explain to the court why he should be given bail.
The judge was of the view that the allegations against the British national were alarming and that he was a flight risk as he was only in the country on a permit.
Hamilton argued the contrary and added that his client suffered with diabetes and kidney disease.
In December the preliminary inquiry will be held for this case.
