RCMP allege Jack Athwal violated one of his bail conditions on April 5.

A notorious Maple Ridge landlord has been charged with breaching bail for violating a no-contact order against a woman he is accused of threatening.

Jagdev Singh Athwal appeared in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court Wednesday to face one count of breaching an undertaking.

Ridge Meadows RCMP allege Athwal violated one of his bail conditions on April 5.

He remains on bail on one count each of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and criminal harassment.

According to court records, the threats were made May 1 and July 6 2012.

Athwal, who goes by the name ‘Jack,’ denies harassing anyone and claims he’s been targeted by disgruntled tenants, who he recently evicted.

“The tenants will do anything,” Athwal said last year. “It’s revenge.”

The allegations have yet to be proven in court.

Athwal, 71, also faces another charge of counselling a person to commit murder.

That charge relates to Gordon Towers, a high-rise in downtown Maple Ridge where he owns six apartments.

Athwal is accused of asking a former tenant to kill a man who managed the building.

Athwal owns around 30 rental units in Maple Ridge and was the former owner of Northumberland Court, a drug-and-crime-ridden townhouse complex that has since been demolished.
