Alfreton church row

A man has appeared in court on two harassment charges.

Mohamed Ajmal Dar, 52, of Ley Gardens, Alfreton, was charged in connection with incidents at a church and war memorial in Alfreton last Remembrance Sunday. Mr Dar pleaded not guilty to the charges when he appeared at Chesterfield magistrates’ court on Tuesday, January 7.

He will be tried at Derby Crown Court in March. He was granted conditional bail and ordered not to go within 100 metres of Alfreton’s New Life Church.
