Argentine court revokes arrest warrant for Justin Bieber

MUMBAI: An appeals court in Argentina has cancelled an international arrest warrant issued for Justin Bieber in connection with an alleged assault by the pop superstar's bodyguards, judicial sources said.

The warrant was revoked on 16 July, the sources told EFE.

The incident occurred during the Canadian singer's 2013 concert tour of Argentina.

In the early hours of 9 November, 2013, according to the allegation, the pop singer ordered his two bodyguards to assault a photographer outside a disco in Buenos Aires, leaving the victim with injuries to his left arm.

The ‘Where Are U Now’ singer ignored a subpoena to testify in the case, prompting a magistrate to issue an international request for his arrest.

Though the warrant has been revoked, the 21-year old singer and his two bodyguards continue to face charges.

Bieber won few friends with his behaviour in Argentina. He used an Argentine flag to wipe the floor of the stage during the first of two scheduled shows in the capital and then halted the second concert just minutes into the performance, complaining of stomach pain.
