The country's most prolific stalker will remain in custody
after allegations of six breaches of his release conditions
in just 12 days.
Glenn Green, who uses several aliases, was released from
prison last month after completing a 30-month sentence for
criminal harassment but the Parole Board conceded he was

It imposed 17 restrictive conditions upon his release and
after less than two weeks of freedom Green was back behind
He appeared in Manukau District Court on June 16 on six
charges of breaching those conditions and was declined bail
by Judge Gerard Winter.
The case came before the High Court at Auckland this morning
with Green appealing against that decision.
The allegations involved him starting a relationship with
someone without informing his probation officer and
possessing gang regalia.
Justice Mark Woolford declined bail and rejected an

Green suffers from erotomania - believing someone, usually a
stranger or high-profile person, is in love with them.
His 26-year criminal history featured more than 200

described Green as "invasive, persistent and predatory".
The judge was concerned the stalker's behaviour had escalated
to the point where he had started targeting vulnerable young
women who had no knowledge of him.
Green will appear in Manukau District Court later this week
before a judge-alone trial later this year.
