By Benjamin Flowers: Leader of the Opposition Patrick Faber appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court this evening, only to have a complaint against him, stemming from a domestic incident, dropped. Faber added while leaving the court that the warrant out for his arrest was an act of political victimization.
Faber, who has been making headlines since earlier this week after his fiancé Dr. Shanika Arnold went to the Queen Street Police Station to make a complaint against him that she would later retract, alleges that the Commissioner of Police was instructed to charge him by political agents behind the scenes.
“The only reason we are here at the Magistrate’s court today is not even because of the issue but because the Commissioner takes these political instructions and that there is an agenda on the part of certain people politically, I don’t know who they are who want to see this kind of embarrassment for me,” Faber said.
Faber said that the situation in court could have been avoided completely and was, in fact, a waste of the court’s time.
Following the case, Elrington said that the motion to arrest and charge Leader of the Opposition Faber was made without proper investigation, and with no evidence to support the allegations, and that a warrant was set for Fabers’ arrest despite the complainant recanting the statement.
Elrington went on to say that he has yet to receive instruction from Faber to file a lawsuit for malicious prosecution. Notably, Faber has not said publicly that this may be a consideration.
