Man charged with harassing Tralee hair salon staff released on bail

A man accused of intimidating and harassing staff at a Tralee hair salon has been released from custody having been granted bail by the High Court. Public Domain Image 37 year-old Chaker Tbini had previously been jailed for eight months by Tralee District Court. The court had heard that some staff at the Peter Mark salon would not turn up for work if Mr Tbini was released from custody. At Tralee District Court earlier this month, it emerged that a panic alarm had to be installed at the Peter Mark salon at Abbey Court following a number of incidents involving the Tunisian asylum seeker. Chaker Tbini called to the salon on several occasions over the Christmas and New Year period and continued to call there despite being warned not to do so by a previous court sitting. The accused had been abusive and threatening towards staff. Staff at Peter Mark have had to lock the doors of the premises in fear of the accused. The court was told some staff would not turn up for work if Mr Tbini was released from custody. He was remanded in custody by Judge James O’Connor but has now been granted bail by the High Court on condition that he stay away from the premises. Mr Tbini is due back in Tralee District Court on Wednesday next and further charges are anticipated.
