A Sydney against lockdown nonconformist blamed for punching a police horse called Tobruk will stay in the slammer after purportedly denying a Covid test that was essential for him to show up in court.
Kristian Pulkownik, 33, is yet to officially apply for bail after he was captured on Saturday following a walk in Sydney’s downtown area where a huge number of individuals challenged Covid’s limitations to join in.
He didn’t show up on the screen for a subsequent time frame this week at Sydney’s focal neighborhood court on Thursday when his matter was referenced.
The Surry Hills man supposedly struck the police horse at the dissent and deals with four indictments of affray, creature remorselessness, joining an unlawful get-together, and neglecting to follow a Covid-19 course.
His advocate, Hollie Blake, asserted in court that remedial administrations officials were making it difficult to access her customer.
Judge Mark Richardson read out a note from Parklea jail showing that Pulkownik couldn’t be raised to a video interface region to seem on the grounds that he was “declining to be tried”.
“Your customer is in authority and has been locally and is a danger to others as he could be Covid-positive,” the officer said. “Your customer is in seclusion.”
Richardson recommended Pulkownik’s attorneys make a high court application in the event that they kept on disliking with the circumstance.
Outside court, attorney Tony Nikolic said he had one five-minute call with Pulkownik where he showed that he was “totally” keen on applying for discharge.
“However, we can’t take legitimate guidelines and this is basic to the general set of laws … we can’t do much without appropriate full guidelines,” Nikolic said. He proposed jail gatekeepers could place a cell phone in a plastic sack to work with more prominent admittance to his customer.
Pulkownik has gone through five days in care following the alleged “Rally 4 Freedom” on Saturday where many exposed dissenters assembled to go against NSW’s Covid wellbeing orders.
More noteworthy Sydney has been secured for five weeks with occupants simply ready to venture out from home for explicit reasons.
The matter is booked to get back to court on 11 August when Pulkownik’s legal counselors have said they would make a bail application.
