You can insist that all correspondence goes through a solicitor or other third party if you wish. If the aggressive ex-friend refuses to do so, and continues to harass you, you can either apply to court for an injunction to stop him contacting you except through your solicitor or you can ask the solicitor to warn him that if he carries on harassing you, he will be prosecuted for harassment. The statutory provision is the Protection from Harassment Act.
Simply the fact that you don’t want to hear directly from him is sufficient that if he continues to contact you, he is harassing you.
