By Breaking Belize News Staff: British soldier 31-year-old Perry Stratford will stand trial in the October sitting of the High Court of Belize for charges of kidnapping, harm, theft and damage to property.

Following a preliminary inquiry in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court Chief Magistrate Jayani Wegodapola determined that Stratford had a case to answer to. Stratford also has a pending matter in the High Court before Justice Ricardo O’Neil Sandcroft where a decision is still pending on whether or not he should be tried in Belize on account that he is a member of the British armed forces.

Stratford has been detained in Belize since 2022 and was originally on house arrest at the British Army Training Support (BATSUB) compound until attorney Orson Elrington secured High Court bail for him.

Stratford is accused of kidnapping his ex-fiancee on December 24, 2022. He is also accused of injuring her as well as stealing her cellphone and destroying it.

His trial has been set for October 2.
