Woman with Ballymena address denies allegations in connection with 'hair salon' which was allegedly open in breach of Covid regulations

A WOMAN with a Ballymena address is accused of contravening coronavirus regulations in connection with a 'hair salon'.

Ilinca Tabacaru (36), of Grange Avenue, is charged in relation to January 10 this year.

Defence solicitor Garret McCann said it was 'not guilty' to three charges and told Ballymena Magistrates Court: "She denies she was running any form of business on the day in question".

District Judge Nigel Broderick asked: "Was the business meant to be closed down?" and a prosecutor replied: "Yes, it is a hair salon".

No further details were given to the court and the case was adjourned to September 23 to fix a date for a contest.
