Why Monica Smit Arrest
The 33-year-old was granted bail on strict conditions after she was charged with two counts of incitement in relation to protests held in Melbourne on August 11 and August 21 during the state’s sixth lockdown.
But in a shock twist her defence lawyer Marcel White told the court Ms Smit was unwilling to sign the undertaking of bail where she would agree to follow the conditions.“Ms Smit is unwilling to sign an undertaking … it appears at this stage that’s the course she wants to adopt,” Mr White said.
Bail conditions magistrate Luisa Bazzani imposed included barring Ms Smit from publishing anything that could incite breaches of the health orders.She was also ordered to follow a court-imposed curfew between 7pm and 6am and remove any material that incited opposition to the health officer’s directions within 48 hours.“I do wish I’d known before we spent all this time on bail that your client was intending to refuse to sign a bail order,” Ms Bazzani said.
At least 4000 people went to the August 21 rally held in the Melbourne CBD, and Ms Smit is alleged to have encouraged people to attend the protests through authoring and transmitting posts on the encrypted Telegram app, prosecutor Anthony Albore told the court.
He said she shared the messages through Telegram on the Reignite Democracy Australia chat to incite her followers to breach directions.“I suggest wearing masks to any events this weekend. Wear them until you’re in a big group and then take them off. It’s not cowardice it’s smart,” one message sent to the chat group on August 18 reads.
The magistrate said police officers were injured and taken to a hospital as a result of the protests and they were labelled as “one of the most violent” demonstrations in 20 years.Up to 90 people attended the event at Flinders Street Station on August 11, Mr Albore said.
