Holloway man gets two year ASBO drinking ban
A man has been banned from drinking alcohol in Islington for two years.
Ilker Hassan, 45, of Georges Road, Holloway, has been sentenced to a six month community order at Highbury Magistrates Court on August 2 after being found guilty of intimidating a neighbour and damaging a fence whilst drunk.
The court also granted a two-year Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) which prevents him from boozing in public places in Islington.
Police officers from the Islington ASBO and Holloway safer neighbourhoods teams gave evidence of several incidents including one where Hassan smeared excrement over the walls of his cell in Islington Police Station after being arrested for disorderly behaviour.
He has also exposed himself in public, threatened to stab police officers and made racially abusive remarks when boozed up.

The case involved close working between police, Islington Council and Hyde Northside Housing staff because Hassan has been one of its tenants.
PC Andy Palmer, from Islington’s ASBO team, said: “Ilker Hassan has a long history of anti social behaviour and crime which has often been directed at his neighbours. Looking deeper into each incident it became apparent that his drinking was at the root of the problem. I am pleased that the court agreed that this behaviour should not be tolerated.”

Cllr Catherine West, leader of Islington Council, said: “We work closely with police to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour. Together, we will continue to take action against those who blight the lives of those living in our community.”
