REPORTS on ASBO pensioner Patrick Hassaen -- who has made his neighbours' lives a misery by playing loud music and shouting abuse - were not available for Ely magistrates this week.

So 69-year-old Hassaen could not be sentenced for committing a third breach of his anti-social behaviour order.

Three weeks ago the court ordered a variety of reports, after hearing that the pensioner had shouted, sworn, and made unreasonable noise, including playing Tom Jones CDs, at his flat in Wheatsheaf Close, Ely.

At that hearing, presiding magistrate Maggie Holling had said: "It is clear this ASBO is not working."

Hassaen was first given the anti-social behaviour order back in August of last year, because he delivered torrents of abuse and foul language towards his neighbours.

The ASBO prohibits him from:

* Making any unreasonable noise, and shouting or swearing inside his house so loudly that is causes harassment, alarm or distress to neighbours.

* Abusing any person verbally or in writing.

A month after being given the ASBO, Hassaen breached it by playing Tom Jones music at full blast.

On February 4, Hassaen admitted a second breach of the ASBO, committed when he

played loud music while stamping his feet, shouting and swearing.

The court has been told that Hassaen could be evicted from his home if the situation is not resolved.

He is due back in court on April 8.
