Former Sliema deputy mayor Cyrus Engerer, who was arraigned for harassing former boyfriend Marvic Camilleri, was acquitted of all charges.

Engerer - who earlier in 2011 had resigned from the PN and moved to Labour - was at the centre of the controversial police charge issued some 10 days after his resignation from the party, sparking a debate on whether a complaint filed by Marvic Camilleri back in January 2010 had deliberately surfaced for prosecution.

Engerer, 31, was charged with keeping and circulating pornography and computer misuse. He was also charged with vilifying Marvic Camilleri, a former employee of the Nationalist Party and a former member of the PN youth movement. The alleged crimes took place between December 2009 and January 2010.

Camilleri had complained that Engerer had circulated compromising photographs of himself to friends and his employer.

The charges were issued just days after his father Chris Engerer, who owns a beach club in Sliema, was arrested after police caught him smoking cannabis outside his home.

Lawyer Franco Debono appeared for Cyrus Engerer.

Complainant Marvic Camilleri had formally dropped the charges and filed a note with the courts.
