The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has dropped the case it had started against Jareem Fahie, who was accused of injuring another person.
No clear indication was given as to why the case was being dumped. Fahie’s matter was nearly a year old.
When the 26-year-old Cane Garden Bay resident appeared in court recently, Senior Magistrate Tamia Richards told him: “Christmas has come early for you.”
The senior magistrate went on to tell the then accused man: “The DPP has filed a notice of discontinuance for you; so you are free to go.”
Fahie then waltzed out of court with a grin.
In the meantime, details of the allegations were not read aloud during Fahie’s last appearance.
However, the court was told that, on October 13 last year, Fahie allegedly assaulted a person and caused the said person to suffer ‘actual bodily harm’.
The complainant in the case is said to be a female.
