Together with his advocate, Philip Sinel, Senator Syvret voluntarily went to Police headquarters at 5pm yesterday night.
He was later released on a warning and told to attend the Magistrate's Court at 10am on Thursday 16 July.
Senator Svyret and his lawyer Advocate Philip Sinel say they'll fight the charges.
They spoke to channelonline.tv ahead of going into police headquarters.
After a short time, Senator Syvret and his lawyer walked from police headquarters. Advocate Sinel said it was difficult to understand exactly what his client had been charged with.
