The charges are related to alleged offences dating back to 2014.

The soldier, who holds the rank of Lance Corporal, appeared before Seventh Court Magistrate Adia Mohammed and was granted bail in the sum of $80,000 with surety.

The soldier’s father was accepted as the surety and up to midday yesterday relatives were trying to secure bail.
