Belize and Law

It's always interesting to read the trerminology used by different legal systems. I triped across this example from Belize:
"This morning’s trip to Belmopan was to hear Magistrate Earl Jones’ ruling on a no case submission that his defense attorneys made on January 29, during the preliminary inquiry into whether or not there was a prima facie case against him."
I believe that probably translates into American as "a motion to strike in a preliminary hearing to establish probable cause."
