Director of Public Prosecutions, Christopher Pryde has decided no charges will be laid against government Member of Parliament Howard Politini in relation to a complaint of criminal intimidation on May 17th.
The police file was sent to the DPP for an assessment of the evidence and a decision on whether any charges should be laid following a complaint.
The DPP says it’s their opinion that there’s insufficient evidence to support criminal charges against Politini following the review of the police docket and evidence.
The DPP adds the docket has been returned to the police.
Politini in May refuted a submission made by youth representative Dylan Kava from the NFP Youth wing to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs.
The submission was regarding the international covenant on civil and political rights and the international covenant on economic, social and cultural rights.
However, Kava’s submission was labelled unconstructive by the government MP.
