In December, a Japanese national Asako Solis, who has been living in Belize and married to Belizean businessman Elvis Solis, was accused of committing an aggravated assault with a firearm upon her estranged husband.

The trial against Solis began three weeks ago before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser but has come to an end after Elvis Solis indicated that he did not wish to pursue the matter. On Tuesday, July 25, 2017, he told the magistrate that with his ex-wife in prison, their children would be without their mother. With that, prosecutor in the case Cpl. Christopher Smith discontinued offering evidence against the accused. As a result, Solis was free to go.

Asako was previously arraigned before Magistrate Fraser on two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm against Elvis. Elvis alleged that while they were having an argument in their bedroom, she pulled out his firearm which he had placed on the bureau and pointed it at him on two separate occasions in December 2016. The matter was not dealt with until January and that is when she was charged. She was remanded to prison without bail due to the nature of the offense. She claims that the story was fabricated. Her version claims that while they had a disagreement, she did not pull a gun on Elvis.

In her January trial, she was granted a Supreme Court bail by Justice Madam Antoinette Moore in the sum of $2,500.
