Charge against Omar Archer dropped

Police brought Contractors Registrar Omar Archer, 48, to court yesterday after he was accused of assault.

However, his alleged victim, Tino Robinson, withdrew his complaint.

Archer and Robinson, 28, both of Nassau Village, were flanked by policemen as they did the perp walk from the Nassau Street Police Station to the South Street Magistrates’ Court Complex on Tuesday morning.

Archer denied the claim that he assaulted Robinson on May 29 at his arraignment before Deputy Chief Magistrate Andrew Forbes.

Archer’s lawyer, Geoffrey Farquharson, said that Robinson was in court.

Under oath, Robinson said that he had not been promised anything or threatened to drop the case.

However, Robinson still has a case associated with his initial complaint.

He’s accused of making a false statement to police on May 30.

Robinson denied the charge and was granted $500 bail.

His trial is set for November 4.

Archer’s lawyer acted as a friend of the court and appeared for Robinson at his arraignment.
