Edelmiro Oliver on remand for indecent assault of an 8-year-old girl

Edelmiro Oliver, a resident of Belize City, was remanded to the Belize Central Prison today, Friday, after he was denied bail for a charge of aggravated assault of an indecent nature on a minor.

Oliver pleaded not guilty to the charge but the prosecution objected to bail on the grounds that his being incarcerated would ensure the protection, not only of the victim from Oliver, but also of Oliver himself from the victim’s family. Oliver was remanded until his adjournment date on August 30, 2013.

Allegations are that on July 18, 2013, Oliver touched an eight-year-old girl inappropriately and the incident was reported to authorities, eventually leading to Oliver’s arrest. Oliver was someone the child knew.
