COURT TODAY BLOCKA man who told police there was “nothing left to live for” if he could no longer communicate with his former girlfriend, was remanded to HMP Dodds until next month for sentencing following an appearance in the  District ‘A” Magistrates’ Court No. 2.

Geoffrey Clifford Oliver pleaded guilty to assaulting and harassing his former girlfriend just days ago on St Michael’s Row, The City.

The court heard from the prosecutor, Sergeant Janice Ifill, that the relationship which the complainant had with Oliver was an abusive one, causing the woman to end it and move out of the home they shared on June 18.

However, the 38-year-old butcher kept confronting the woman about getting back together. On Monday, he went to her workplace and she reported the matter to police, who subsequently spoke to Oliver about his behaviour.

However, he subsequently returned to the workplace, this time holding on to the complainant’s hand. He also reportedly told the woman during that visit, “the police can’t do him anything [but] lock him up for a little while, and when he is released, it will be worse than how it was”.

Again the matter was reported to lawmen, who brought him in for questioning. It was during that time at the police station that Oliver repeatedly told police “he only wanted to talk to the complainant and if that couldn’t happen, there was nothing left to live for”.

When Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant asked Oliver if he had anything to say, seemingly close to tears, he held down his head and shook it.

The court was further informed that Oliver, who has a previous conviction, never paid $3 000 in compensation to a man he had earlier assaulted. That sentence was handed down by Magistrate Douglas Frederick in January this year and there was already a warrant of arrest issued for Oliver. He had been given two months to pay the money or face six months jail time.

Oliver returns to court on July 20 for sentencing.

    Let’s hope that he was not duped in the first place. At times persons dupe partners and then they “forget” and want to move on with their lives. If he was duped his family members can contact a man of God who can go to the prison and take him through a form of deliverance. Counselling only will not help him to walk away from that relationship. It must contain a spiritual component. Persons need to stop duping their partners. It causes those partners to believe that they cannot function unless the duper is in his/her life – a dependency syndrome. It is a terrible act because demonic forces are involved in those relationships. Trying to secure relationships by duping your partner will generally end in someone getting hurt.

      While in prison they can put him in the kitchen to work. He will have more than enough time to make a gingerbread woman and own her.

    these men seem to think that when they have a woman, they litterally own her, if she wants out of the relationship for some reason its stress for her, if he leaves her she must suck it up and move on, then why the hell they can’t do the same? both men and women have hearts which can be broken, pain is pain no matter who is feeling it. why men think that a woman can’t leave them? and in most cases its because of their scant respect and treatment of the woman that she had to leave him in the first place.
