Ravel MorrisonRavel Morrison has been cleared of threatening to have his ex-girlfriend ‘murdered for £10,000’

The Hammers player was accused of assaulting Rhea Mansoor and her mother Parveen Mansoor back in July. Morrison was also accused of harassing Reah Mansoor over a four-and-a-half year period, by threatening to throw ‘acid in her face and to pay £10,000 to have her murdered’ in a ‘course of conduct’ stretching between January 1, 2010, and July 20 this year.

According to the Manchester Evening News, at a brief Manchester Crown Court hearing today, prosecutor Guy Mathieson revealed the charge of putting Rhea Mansoor is fear of violence by harassment was being not being pursued, and a verdict of ‘not guilty’ was formally recorded on direction of Judge David Stockdale QC.

Morrison, who was dressed in a black shirt and trousers, is still due to go on trial on January 26th, facing charges of actual bodily harm and assault by beating against Rhea Mansoor, and assault by beating against her mother.

Morrison was arrested in the early hours of July 27 following reports that Rhea Mansoor, 19, had been assaulted outside a nightclub in Manchester and at an address on Alexandra Road in Peel Green, Salford. Her 39-year-old mother also claimed she had been attacked.

Judge Stockdale bailed Mr Morrison to an address in Cardiff on condition he does not contact directly or indirectly the two alleged victims.

He must not enter Greater Manchester except for court appearances or an official football match, and must return immediately after each match.
