Justin Bieber will have to be in court for questioning in Argentina, no matter if he wants it or not. The Baby singer has been summoned for questioning linked to the alleged attack involving his bodyguards. The attack dates back to last year, while Bieber was on tour in South American.
Justin Bieber will have 60 days to appear in court in this country. The matter actually is very serious, as Judge Facundo Cubas has actually said that he will ask the Interpol on Thursday to use all necessary means to make sure that Bieber knows that he has to be in court. In case the star avoids to make the court presence, an international arrest order would be issued for him.
This serious legal issue for Justin Bieber is linked to the controversial assault on photographer Diego Pesoa. The photographer claimed that Justin Bieber and his bodyguards chased and beat him down in Buenos Aires. The case dates back to November 9, 2013. Following the beating, the man had to be hospitalized. Diego accused Bieber of ordering his security staff to attack him. It all happened outside the INK nightclub, where Bieber and his entourage were partying.
In case he will be charged, Justin Bieber faces one year in prison. Earlier, Bieber managed to settle the case regarding vandalism on his neighbor’s property. However, it seems that another legal issue is on the way for the Baby singer. So, the star’s legal issues are not going to end now.
Linked to this case, Bieber is now on probation. He will remain on probation for two years and will have to complete 12 weeks of anger management and do five days of community service.
Justin Bieber and his reps have not commented on this case. Apparently, the star has no other option than returning to Argentina, otherwise an international warrant for his arrest will be issued. However, if he returns and he receives a guilty verdict, he can face up to one year in jail. It is yet to see what will happen in this case.
