The defendant was charged with harassment causing fear of violence (against his ex-girlfriend) and harassment (against the ex-girlfriend’s new partner).

At the close of the prosecution case, Chloe made a successful submission of no case to answer in respect of both offences on the basis that the Crown had failed to demonstrate that the defendant had engaged in a course of conduct amounting to harassment against either complainant.

The Bench agreed the case should be dismissed and acquitted the defendant.

Chloe was instructed by Bawita Dhanda of Martin Murray & Associates.
