Authorities have asked residents across NSW to follow critical lockdown laws after more than a dozen in Newcastle alone were fined for violating the health direction.
Assistant Commissioner Gary Worboys said the violation was rampant across the state, forcing 43 separate area commands to hand out violation notices.
More than a dozen were also blown up in central Sydney as the state registered 105 new local infections.
“What it highlights is the fact that police across the state continue to respond to Crime Stoppers reports and remain very visible in the areas where they believe people are outside the public health order,” it said. top officer to reporters Sunday.
“They will issue infringement notices to try to correct that behavior.”
Sir. The Worboys focused their frustration on three removal advocates traveling to the central west of the state from western Sydney, who were reportedly aware that they were infected with Covid-19.
“These three gentlemen have been notified of court visits,” he said.
“What I want to highlight is the maximum penalty that the court can impose is $ 11,000 and or six months in prison.
“We often talk about $ 600 for a mask, $ 200 for a mask or $ 1000 for a personal offense, but the police found the behavior of these three people to be particularly disturbing.
“Despite the best health advice, they continued their journey.
They left their home in Greater Sydney and put a significant risk to the people of the regional New South Wales. ”
Deputy Prime Minister John Barilaro reiterated the outrage, branding the act of removal as “deliberate and ruthless”.
“What these three men did was ruthless when they knew on the advice that they should not travel into the region,” he said.
“The full arm of the law will come down hard, the justice system will come down hard, we have significant sanctions in place for deliberate ruthless acts like this, and this could actually endanger not only a society like Orange, but the central west.
“This is careless, ruthless and deliberate, and they will feel the law fully.”
