A woman who had been accused of breaching a Restraining Order by interfering with a woman’s ‘peaceful enjoyment of her property’ has had charges she faced withdrawn.

Codruta Racoare (46), who had lived at Demesne Avenue, Ballymena, had the case mentioned at Ballymena Magistrates Court on Thursday.

The charge alleged that on May 2 this year, at Demesne Avenue, ‘without reasonable excuse’ the defendant ‘harassed and interfered with’ a woman’s ‘peaceful enjoyment of her property’ which she was prohibited from doing by an Order under the Protection from Harassment (Northern Ireland) Order.

The defendant was also charged with another count of harassing the woman.

Defence barrister Stephen Law said the defendant had moved house and on that basis the charges had been withdrawn which was confirmed by a prosecutor.
