17 July, 2018, 3:25 pm
NO charges will be laid against SODELPA provisional candidate Ezekiel Sharma, Director of Public Prosecutions Christopher Pryde has confirmed.
A Police file in relation to comments allegedly made by Mr Sharma on social media site Facebook between October and December 2017 was sent to the DPP for an assessment of the evidence and a decision on whether any charges should be laid.
The DPP said “following a review of the Police docket and the evidence, it is our opinion that there is insufficient evidence to support criminal charges against Ezekiel Sharma and, therefore, the docket has been returned to Police and the file closed”.
