Magistrate Hazel Octave-Hamilton remanded to prison a man accused of using threatening language to his mother, when he yesterday appeared in court to answer the charges.
The allegation against Michael Paul, 37, is that on August 9, at 52 Pike Street, Kitty, Georgetown, he made use of threatening language to Parbattie Paul thereby resulting in a breach of the peace. The unemployed man denied the charge when it was read to him in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
In her submission, Police Corporal Venetta Pindar told the court that it was not the first time that the defendant had been put before the court on a charge involving his mother.
On hearing this, the accused interjected saying that while he is indeed a repeat-accused, this was the first time he was brought before the court in a charge involving his mother. He explained that the first time he was charged it was a matter involving his wife.
When given a chance to speak, the complainant told the court that “it is true that this is the second time” that she and her son have landed in court because of his unruly and abusive behaviour towards her. The woman told the court that her son uses abusive language towards her and has a tendency of breaking-up windows in her house. In a frustrated tone the woman said she has had enough of her son’s behaviour and wants the court’s intervention.
Paul, who was unrepresented in court requested bail but his application was subsequently denied.
He was ordered to appear in Court One on October 21.
