NIRVAN Singh, the son of former Chancellor of the Judiciary, Justice Carl Singh, was, on Friday, granted $100,000 bail after pleading not guilty to allegedly assaulting ex-police constable, Shawnette Bollers.
Singh, an attorney, appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, where the private criminal charge was read to him.
It is alleged that he, on March 20, 2022, at Middle and Cummings Streets, Georgetown, unlawfully and maliciously assaulted the woman.
The private charge was filed by Bollers through her lawyer, Eusi Anderson. The young attorney will return to court on July 6, 2022.
Bollers is reported to have been part of the security detail attached to the Singhs’ residence.
Back in April, Bollers had filed a private charge against Singh for allegedly using racial slurs against an Afro-Guyanese. On April 20, Singh pleaded not guilty to that charge and was released on $100,000 by Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus.
However, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Shalimar Ali-Hack, later discontinued the matter against Singh.
In a statement, the DPP had contended that there was inconsistency regarding the racial hostility allegation made by Bollers against Singh.
The DPP opined that the evidence was not consistent with the offence created in the relevant section of the Act, as the words used by Singh were not spoken in order to excite others to act with hostility or ill-will against the complainant.
Bollers currently has a $150 million lawsuit against Singh at the High Court.
