Justin Bieber has 60 days to return to Argentina and shows up in court or he will face arrest, reports state-run news agency Télam.com.ar
Justin Bieber has been accused of sending bodyguards to attack a photographer outside a Buenos Aires nightclub, Argentina – during a South American tour last year.
Judge Facundo Cubas asked Interpol on Thursday to use all “necessary means” to notify Justin that he has 60 days to appear before the court in Argentina. The judge says that if Justin fails to comply, an international arrest order will be issued.
Argentine photographer Diego Pesoa alleges he was chased down and beaten on Nov. 9, 2013, by JB’s bodyguards outside the INK nightclub, where Justin and his entourage partied.
Justin would face up to one year in prison if he was convicted on a charge of causing minor injuries.
At time time of the alleged attack Diego said:
I was waiting for Justin Bieber to leave so I could take a picture of him when a bodyguard tried to take my camera off me. He began to run after me and half a block away he punched me in the head before kicking me in the stomach as I was lying on the ground. When I tried to get away, I realised that instead of just one there were seven or eight bodyguards behind me. I’ve got cuts all the way up my arm and bruises on my stomach and my head hurts.
