A SOLICITOR said a man accused of harassing his ex-partner and breaching a Non-Molestation Order was “posting love songs and love messages and photographs” on social media.

Lawyer Derwin Harvey was speaking at Coleraine Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena, where Glen Loughrey (36), of Beresford Avenue, Coleraine, appeared via video link.

The charges relate to January 10 this year.

A police officer said it was a “harassment/domestic abuse type case” and he “appears completely fixated” and even after being charged Loughrey was still requesting that custody staff make contact with the woman on his behalf.

The police officer opposed bail saying the defendant had previous convictions regarding the woman and had sent her “very voluminous” Facebook messages at the weekend.

The officer said the defendant admitted sending the messages and said he would continue to make contact.

The policeman said there were concerns about the mental health of the defendant.

Derwin Harvey said the defendant had ongoing mental health issues throughout his life.

He said there had been no physical contact but the contact was through social media and the defendant did not know where the woman lives.

The solicitor said the messages involved “presenting as a family again and the role he can play as a father” and the defendant was “posting love songs and love messages and photographs” on social media.

The lawyer said it was conceded the defendant had breached a Non-Molestation Order.

The defendant was given bail but is to have no contact with the woman and is not to be in possession of a mobile phone or device capable of internet access and must continue with treatment for his mental health.

He was released on £500 bail and the case was adjourned to January 25.
