4 BATUS soldiers to have hearing


Four British soldiers stationed at CFB Suffield were expected to have a hearing in a Halifax courtroom. The 4 were in Nova Scotia in April when they were arrested on sexual assault allegations. The court made a change in their bail conditions in May to allow them to be transferred to BATUS. The application before the court is to allow the accused to return to the U.K. until their preliminary inquiry which is scheduled for April 2016, also in Halifax. The crown says they have serious concerns about allowing the men to leave Canada before the hearing. No allegations against the four have been proven in court and none of the accused soldiers have entered please to any of the charges.
