But wasn’t the magistrate asking for a gaoling power rather than fining power?And I think that is likewise being addressed too with a gaol sentence for deliberate avoidance of quarantine.
Update: all four had a negative covid and they are being kicked out of the state by end of the day. And the Premier is furious with the Magistrate who let them off scott free. Hence the fine for not complying. Oh well, at least we dont have to house them in gaol.
which is better goal (for say 1 month) or quarantine then kick out immediately? (It’s more a rhetorical question)
