A new charge of criminal harassment has been laid against a man dubbed the country's most prolific stalker.

Glenn Green, 43, also known as Glenn Corleone, Goldberg, Carlionne, Casellano and Holden, appeared in the Manukau District Court today charged with breaching his prison release conditions six times within the 12 days he was free from jail.

The charges had been laid by the Department of Corrections, but police today added a criminal charge of harassment to Green's already-lengthy list of charges.

Green has pleaded not guilty to all charges. He will face a judge-alone trial on October 3.

Described by police as the country's most prolific stalker, Green was imprisoned for 30 months in 2012 for two counts of criminal harassment. His offending began three weeks after getting out of prison in 2011.

Green is charged with five counts of breaching his release condition that he not start or resume any relationships.

In the 12 days he was out of prison he was alleged to have:

● sent an unsolicited handwritten letter to a woman under the name Glenn Holden

● sent three text messages to a woman he had contacted in 2013 and previously in 1993 under the name Dallas Goldberg

● sent a letter to a woman who worked at a mens' fashion store under the name Goldie

● written letters to two other women which were not sent because they were found at his house when police raided.

His release conditions also ordered him not to possess gang regalia and he was discovered with Hells Angels and Aryan Brotherhood insignia, the department alleges.

He was held to the end of his sentence and released on June 4 this year, but was rearrested for allegedly breaching his release conditions just 12 days later.

Green was remanded in custody to trial.
