A JUDGE has refused bail in the case of a Congolese man alleged to have made threats against his ex-partner at Henry Street garda station.
Aristote Manganga, 24, with an address at Thomas Street, is charged with breaching a protection order by threatening Tracey Moran with harm in the presence of gardai, putting her and dependents in fear, on July 24.
Mr Manganga is further charged with threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour and with failing to comply with garda directions in Henry Street on the same date.
Mr Manganga was representing himself in making the application for bail before Judge Eugene O’Kelly at Limerick District Court.
He told the judge he would make no attempt to contact the alleged injured party if granted bail.
“I swear on the bible. I tell the truth. I am a christian,” Mr Manganga said.
Inspector Dermot O’Connor said the state was opposing the application owing to the serious nature of the charge.
Judge O’Kelly refused bail and remanded Mr Manganga in custody pending DPP’s directions.
