ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - On Friday March 20, 2015 when Morry Ollivierrie appeared before Senior Magistrate‎ Ms Tamia Richards it was for a report from the Family Support Network (FSN) but the court also heard about the disturbing drama which allegedly unfolded between Ollivierrie and his wife Tameka Johnson-Ollivierrie as recently as the day before, Thursday March 19, 2015.

The report from FSN was nothing but positive on the part of the husband, who is on trial for a prior incident, as he had successfully completed the counselling session. ‎With such a report, it was for the Crown to give its final position of either discontinuing the matter against Ollivierrie or making further recommendations.

But it was at that stage that the Crown informed the court that they had found themselves in an unusual position as prior to the case being called Mrs Johnson-Ollivierrie informed that her husband had been in breach of the court order which prohibited him from getting involved in any further altercation with his wife as a condition of his bail.

Hiring a hitman

The Crown’s representative Ms Chantel L. Flax-Ward told the court that the wife informed the Crown that her husband had since threatened to kill her and that she had information of him allegedly wanting to import a hitman from overseas to do the job. ‎She alleged that he had also pulled a knife on her (Mrs Johnson-Ollivierrie ) during a heated argument.

In January 2015 when the court had heard the initial case against the man, for which he was sent to FSN, Ms Richards had said it was her understanding that the two were living together but much to her surprise, based on the information of the Crown, that had changed shortly after leaving the court.

The Crown had also told the court of the wife providing an audio recording of what was perceived to have been that of an altercation mainly between the two as there were lots of screaming and the voice believed to have been that of a landlord asking what was going on and someone shouting "Behave, Behave".

It was the allegation of the wife also that the husband was very aggressive towards her in public especially during practice sessions as they both are members of the Vincy Cricket Team.

Husband’s version

Given the opportunity to give his version, Mr Ollivierrie told the court that he was no longer living with his wife as she had put out all his clothing and he now lives with his mother. He related a story of him being confronted by the wife who allegedly accused him of being with another woman and during which time she had slapped him, causing injury to his nose.

He also told the court of an incident where, after an argument between the two, the woman ran him down with her vehicle before speeding away from the scene. He said he reported the matter to police.

Mr Ollivierrie told the court that he has made plans to leave the territory right after his matter is over in the courts as he was aware that his wife had been in contact with Immigration in attempts to have him deported.

Couple’s problems affecting child

He related that a child they have from their union is being severely affected as ‎he seems to be turning against the father due to the alleged influence of the mother. The child is just four years old and was said to have been removed from the mother's home as she allegedly lives with an “unstable brother” who was caught giving the little child beers to drink. The child now resides with a grandmother with arrangements in place for the mother to have him at specified times.

The story was one that caused the senior magistrate to express her concerns about the child who she said is the one who will grow up being affected the most.

Consider a divorce

Since there was no charge against the mother, the court had no jurisdiction over her and could not have addressed her. The Magistrate, however, advised the man to take guidance from FSN as to how to file for a restraining order against the wife and also advised that he considers getting a divorce as it was obvious that there was grim hope that the two were going to be able to resolve their issues.

The defendant had requested that the magistrate order his wife not to visit the home of his mother as it was allegedly causing many challenges as she frequently “disturbs the ‎peace”.

Ms Richards then added new conditions to the man's bail which prohibits him from coming into close contact with the his wife‎.

      The article says "they both are members of the Vincy Cricket Team". I would think that both are from St Vincent.

      Shut your @$$, son of the soil. I am presently married to a Jamaican for seven years and I have been with him for twelve years. He is 100 times better than any of you Tolans. This situation is not isolated to island men. This happens all over the world and there is a lot of Tolans that do a lot worse. Check the books. I know the wife very very well. She is not any angel

    It is so imperative today who we get ourselves involved with. Most people do not change. That is who they simply were all the time - their character!! Thus, it is so important for those of us who are parents to constantly educate our kids about who they associate with and, when getting married, to fully understand the background their future spouse comes from. Some people come from very "spiritually" sick backgrounds - I am referring to those who claim to come from very spiritually oriented christian rearing but are actually wolves in sheep clothing. There are so much lies, deceits, and betrayals going on in relationships with parties having their own hidden agenda.
