Rosa Bennathan, who is prosecuting the case on behalf of the Metropolitan Police, has reportedly told the court that Penrose has also contacted Foy’s sister.

“It is clear that a warrant is needed. There have been some violations of the warrant which are currently being investigated by the police,” Bennathan told the court.

Penrose, who was asked to be represented by a lawyer at the hearing, could face up to five years in prison if charged and found guilty of violating the temporary Stalking Protection Order. However, if a full Stalking Protection Order is issued against Penrose, it would be a civil rather than a criminal case.
