Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard last Thursday, May 10, how Mohammed Dar (pictured), 55, of Ley Gardens, Alfreton, admitted one count of harassment on the basis that he set up fake Facebook accounts but he has denied loitering in the street in relation to this count.

He also pleaded not guilty to a further count of breaching a restraining order after allegedly approaching a neighbour, watching her address with binoculars and loitering on Ley Gardens near her home.

Both counts relate to alleged incidents between November and December, 2016.

The case was adjourned for an interim hearing on May 30 with a pending trial regarding the alleged breach and a simultaneous Newton Hearing to establish if Dar had been involved in loitering on the other count.

The trial and Newton Hearing are expected to be heard at Chesterfield magistrates’ court before the District Judge on June 13.

There is also expected to be a further hearing in relation to all matters at Derby Crown Court on June 20.

Dar was further remanded in custody.
