Sergeant Delroy Smellie, 47, from Clapham in southwest London, pleaded not guilty to a charge of common assault by striking Nicola Fisher in the City of London on April 2 as the leaders of the G20 nations gathered for an economic summit.
Smellie denied the charge at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court in central London and was released on unconditional bail. A trial date was set for March 22 next year, the Press Association reported.
As Scotland Yard have been dumping all their images of cops not wearing identity numbers on their lapels at the G20 police riot, we can only assume he is about to deny the officer slapping and battoning a woman is infact……. NOT HIM!
The millions of images in the public domain of the incident will no doubt be deemed ‘immaterial’.
