A DISTRICT JUDGE has refused to vary the bail of a Polish national accused of making death threats so that he can work in Majorca this summer.

Andrzej Szeremet (39), with an address at Westland Road, Magherafelt, was recently released on High Court bail on charges including assault causing actual bodily harm, attempted wounding and choking, possessing an offence weapon, a kitchen knife, and possessing Class B drugs on June 3.

A defence lawyer told Magherafelt Magistrates Court today that the defendant wished to have the terms of his bail varied to enable him to work as a video DJ on the Spanish island.

He pointed out that Szeremet has a child here and that Magherafelt was his home and he would return.

Refusing the application District Judge Des Perry remarked that there was nothing to stop the defendant for getting on a plane in Majorca and going anywhere in the work.

Mr Perry adjourned the matter for two weeks to enable the defence to go back to the High Court to seek the bail variation.
