Tutai Junior Amiri appeared in the Criminal Court on Thursday on two charges of excess breath alcohol and two of contempt of court.
“I’ve never seen a defendant counsel so harassed by someone who keeps offending,” Norman George said.
“I’m not happy with him calling me on weekends with this drinking; his drinking is out of control.”
George asked that the matter be adjourned to see how the sentence could be approached.
George said his client was hoping to get a job in New Zealand, but there was continuing frustration.
“I want to arrest myself; I also want to serve notice on him.”
The court heard Amiri had already entered a guilty plea to one of the excess breath alcohol charges but not to three of the latest charges.
A new charge had been filed on Wednesday.
George entered guilty pleas to all the charges and the matter was adjourned to June 1.
Amiri was told not to consume alcohol.
