Tabaza, the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of global tech­nol­ogy firm Neu­man & Esser, is said to have re­ceived death threats af­ter the in­ci­dent.

Mr Har­ron, from Stir­ling, has al­ready been sen­tenced to a month in prison and fined 2,000 dirhams (£412) for drink­ing and mak­ing a rude ges­ture. He is due to be sen­tenced on an­other charge of pub­lic in­de­cency, in which he claims to have touched Mr Tabaza’s hip to avoid spilling his drink.

Mr Har­ron will ap­pear in court on Oc­to­ber 22 and could face three years in prison if found guilty.

Jamie Har­ron faces a three-year sen­tence over al­le­ga­tions he touched a man’s hip.

A spokesman for Neu­man & Esser con­firmed Mr Tabaza has dropped the com­plaint, adding: “With the pun­ish­ment to be ex­pected, our em­ployee de­cided to with­draw the com­plaint de­spite the ha­rass­ment be­ing con­firmed by wit­nesses.”
