B.D.F. Soldier to Stand Trial for Sexual Abuse of Minor

Kenneth Swazo

In another case of sexual abuse, Chief Magistrate Ann-Marie Smith has committed Belize Defence Force soldier, Kenneth Swazo, to stand trial at the October session of the Supreme Court. A fourteen-year-old minor claims she was sexually abused by Swazo at a Belize City hotel. The alleged incident happened in August of last year. At the time Swazo was the program coordinator of a B.D.F. camp which the girl was attending. But in court, Swazo claimed that he was not even at the camp where he purportedly met the girl. Swazo was granted bail and is to appear in the Supreme Court on October fourth, 2016.
